Each chapter is laid out in an easy-to-read format and includes fascinating history and documented paranormal activities. Each chapter includes contact information, visitor tips, and photographs. This is the first book in Zepke's popular MOST HAUNTED series.

Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum...where experimental lobotomies were performed and it is believed that many of tormented spirits are still roaming around.

Moon River Brewing Company...where no one is allowed to go to the top floor because of the ghost that resides there.

Shanghai Tunnels...where men and women were kidnapped and forced into servitude, the poor souls of whom are now encountered on visitor tours.

Pirates' House...where pirate ghosts still demand rum.

Ohio State Reformatory...where prisoners remain incarcerated even though it has been closed for a long time.

...and much more!


“One of the things I really like about Terrance’s book is that it is such an easy read. The tidbits of history keep you turning the pages, and you also learn about the paranormal investigators, who have used a variety of paranormal investigation tools…A Ghost Hunter’s Guide To The Most Haunted Places in America is one of those books that keeps your imagination wondering what really happened.”
     -Josh Schubert, USA Travel Magazine


“…A Ghost Hunter’s Guide To The Most Haunted Places in America” explores the story behind these ghost story settings all throughout the country, from theatres, old factories, asylums, homes prisons, and much more.  A Ghost Hunter’s Guide To The Most Haunted Places in America is a must for lovers of the paranormal in America. Highly recommended.        -James A. Cox, Midwest Book Review

“From a lunatic asylum to a brewery, ghostly presences inhabit all these places. Complete directions and site information is provided. Even if you don’t get a chance to visit each of these locations, the stories and the black-and-white photos are fascinating.
     -Marcella Gauthier, Escapees Magazine


“…a journalist by training, she [Zepke] takes you on a tour of the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum in West Virginia, the Birdcage Theatre in Arizona, and the Colonial Park Cemetery in Georgia, among a dozen other places…”
     -Alan Caruba, (National Book Critics Circle)

“A Ghost Hunter's Guide to The Most Haunted Places in America by Terrance Zepke is a travel guide to fifteen different places throughout the United States, which are believed to be the home of many ghosts. Zepke herself has always loved a good ghost story and heard many as she was growing up in the Carolinas. Now she has many books recording not only the stories she loves but also the history and photos of the places named. These places have all been investigated and proven haunted by the most sophisticated modern scientific equipment such as EMF detectors, which register electrical and magnetic fields, and EVP's (Electronic Voice Phenomenon), which digitally records sounds the human ear cannot detect. Each place Zepke writes about has all the tour contact information also and many black and white photos. A fun way to plan a trip, if you aren't afraid!”
     -Bonny Neely (Top 1,000 Amazon Reviewer)

“This book was full of so many great facts and figures as well as photos of some truly scary looking places. While I have not visited any of these places, after reading this I am more apt to seek them out, especially with a daughter that loves scary things. The book was well written, short and to the point, but the author does not leave out any detail. She does a great job at describing the locations completely and gives you as a reader a clear glimpse into what you can expect (or not expect) when you visit these locations. It was well written and for anyone who loves haunted places, this is definitely the book for you!” -Dad of Divas, Blogger/Top 1,000 Amazon Reviewer

Terrance Zepke has just published a new book entitled A Ghost Hunter's Guide to the Most Haunted Places in America. From Georgia to California, Terrance writes about places that are home to a ghost or two -- and tells the horrible tales that led to these creatures remaining close to where they died. Her first chapter is about the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum in West Virginia, the place that creeped her out the most in her investigations into the paranormal -- and the one closest to where I live.  It is told that many of the poor souls who died in the facility -- often from experimental treatments and procedures -- continue to roam the halls. Yawsa.   -Teresa Flatley, BoomThis! Magazine

A Ghost Hunter's Guide to the Most Haunted Places in America is a decently good reference book…I did enjoy hearing about all of the haunted places in America. My favorite one was Tombstone. Instead of just one place, it's a whole town that's haunted. Big-nosed Kate's Saloon sounds especially interesting. After reading about Ohio State Reformatory in Mansfield, OH (which isn't too far from where I live), I am hoping to visit it next year...This is a perfect book for Halloween, with just the right amount of creepiness.             -Kayla’s Reads and Reviews

You don’t have to believe in ghosts to realize that certain places in our national history are haunted with legends and spirits of long ago. Terrance Zepke grew up in South Carolina knowing the tales of colonial pirates, Civil War legends, the impact of lowcountry voodoo, and the famous residents of weathered cemeteries…places you probably best not visit at night, She’s written books such as Coastal South Carolina: Welcome to the Lowcountry, Best Ghost Tales of South Carolina, Pirates of the Carolinas, and her latest book, A Ghost Hunter’s Guide to the Most Haunted Places in America, investigates saloons and cemeteries, former sanitariums, and penitentiaries across America where rumors of strange phenomenon seem to have some bearing…Terrance is one of the most schooled experts on paranormal in the United States.  –Rick Steves, Travel with Rick Steves
