He recounts his personal investigations of the ghosts as a renowned parapsychologist in eerily fascinating stories that will haunt readers long after they have finished.   “Hans Holzer understands the rules of ghostly behavior perhaps better than anyone else. It is his business to investigate hauntings.” —Leonard Nimoy   “I became obsessed by Hans Holzer, the greatest ghost hunter ever.
