The eighth book in the bestselling series of hauntingly true Canadian stories - back, and scarier than ever!

In this eighth book of the best-selling series, Joel A. Sutherland brings together some of the most terrifying true stories from across the country.

  • A headless apparition haunts the railway tracks in Woodridge, Manitoba.
  • A ghostly spirit appears at sunrise, silently screaming on an outcrop of rocks in Beacon Hill Park in Victoria, British Columbia.
  • The first general manager of the Halifax Club appears to diners in the very spot where he died in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Moody black-and-white illustrations and archival photos bring these shockingly compelling true stories to life.
