Brothers Brad and Barry Klinge aren’t afraid of the dark, and they prove it with this account of some of their most harrowing ghostly encounters during 20 years of paranormal investigation. Unfortunately, Patrick Lawlor’s narration often comes across as sarcastic, slightly amused, and incredulous—and this tone detracts from the authors’ fascinating and frightening stories. While Brad and Barry aren’t professional writers—as evidenced by the book’s abundance of purple prose—they do offer honest and well-documented accounts of what they claim to have seen and the science behind ghost hunting. Lawlor’s uninspired performance won’t impress listeners and will likely diminish the believability of these paranormal findings. A St. Martin’s/Dunne hardcover. (Sept.)
