A Haunted Road Atlas: Sinister Stops, Dangerous Destinations, and True Crime Tales

We rated this book:


Have you ever visited a city for the first time and wondered about its grim and spooky stories, deathly characters, and weird places? Let A Haunted Road Atlas be your guide to paranormal and true crime stories from major cities in thirty-two states, from Portland, Oregon to Boston, Massachusetts. The unusual travel guide is brought to us by Christine Schiefer and Em Schultz, the witty creators of the podcast And That’s Why We Drink. The duo have traveled across the country to unravel strange and often-disturbing true tales of murder and mysterious happenings. Their discoveries are documented in the book, with QR codes linking to the corresponding podcast episodes.

The book is a fun read for horror and true crime enthusiasts, as well as for folks who are not fazed by rehashing tragedy and trauma of lost lives, or courting danger through the occult. The podcast and the book serve a growing audience that is curious about coming into contact with the paranormal. Many entries may seem pedestrian to locals. But remember: the focus of the travel guide is on sharing the city’s secrets with the uninitiated. A trip to a haunted hotel would not be complete without a sojourn to the area’s most celebrated wineries. Whichever kind of spirit you fancy, you can rely on A Haunted Road Atlas to offer a solid recommendation.
