Thirty-one strange, but true tales to make your flesh creep, to intrigue you, and to give you sleepless nights - all from the pen of Tom Slemen, one of England's top writers and researchers of all things supernatural. Amongst the 31 tales, you will hear about the bizarre, but terrifying creature who terrorised people in Victorian times in Liverpool's Pellew Street. What was he? Man, beast, or some freak of nature hybrid?

stories are very interesting, but narrator is American and so the accents for those in the stories doesn't sound right.

The book is brilliant as all haunted Liverpool books are, but the narrator is irritating. The American accent doesn't suit the book, and his speech is very slow it's terribly frustrating.

It also feels like he is reading to children, and his 'accents' are terrible, every character sounds cockney?! The narrator really puts me off the book . . .
