The tenth book in the bestselling series of hauntingly true Canadian stories — back, and scarier than ever!
Although Patrick and the others were alone, laughter cut through the silence — laughter that soon turned to crying. The group paused and held their breath, trying not to make a sound, waiting for what they might hear next. “Help me,” a young voice said, full of sadness and fear. It sounded too close for comfort.
These terrifying true tales from across Canada will make your blood run cold. A young voice calls out for help in an abandoned asylum in Sainte-Clotilde-de-Horton, Quebec. A family in Eastern Passage, Nova Scotia, is tormented by a poltergeist on Christmas Eve. In Victoria, British Columbia, the spirit of a killer terrifies visitors to Fan Tan Alley. Prepare yourself to be haunted!
Moody black-and-white illustrations and photographs enhance the hauntingly eerie read.
