Baker & Taylor
In a smoky club, a group of crime specialists gather together to talk about two grisly cases involving poltergeists and murder

Blackwell North Amer
The smoky room glows with a mix of cigars, brandy, and genius. Those present include Harry Houdini, king of illusion; Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, father of the modern detective novel; Dr. Nandor Fodor, a psychoanalyst of international acclaim; and an elegant writer who can rival them all with her sleuthing talent.
These masters of mystery put their minds to a pair of gripping stories - of families beset by poltergeistly pranks and bewitched by inexplicable horrors. Gripping puzzles, yes, but the terror is all too vicious and all too real.
For the gathering at the club, a brilliant battle of wits is at hand. Were these villains phantoms from beyond or evildoers of flesh and blood? Each expert has a theory. Which of them is correct?

I have enjoyed most of her books, but author Michaels really missed the mark on this. Stitches in Time, Patriot's Dream, Vanish With The Rose and Ammee Come Home are all very satisfying tales of the supernatural. Other Worlds is not. Good writing style, but I found it pretty boring.

Merely the retelling of two ghost stories, and Michaels' retelling of the stories does not add any excitement to them. I think the book would only be of interest to someone who is curious about the Bell Witch and the Phelps cases.

I really did not like this book. First Barbara Michaels/ Elizabeth Peters book that was boring.
