Summary

Welcome to Haunted Liverpool 28, another dazzling collection of supernatural stories by Tom Slemen, arguably England’s greatest writer on the paranormal. In this exceptional audiobook, you will hear about Liverpool’s mysterious third cathedral - dedicated to Mother Nature - which appears and disappears in the mists of time, and you will also encounter a timid man who was possessed by the spirit of an ancient king via an antique chess set.

Hear also about the many intriguing time-slips in the city, including the disturbing case of a modern female club-goer who was abducted by two rapists from the 18th century. You will also find yourself holed up in the dead of night with two Liverpool security guards who find themselves under attack from a giant vampire, and you will hear the weird case of the adulterous businessman who enlisted a real magician to spirit away his wife!

Included among this compendium of macabre and astounding tales you will hear:

  • The teenage girl who discovered that her doctor was leading a double life - as a werewolf!
  • The small-time criminal who fell ill in prison and woke up in a mysterious empty hospital where a terrifying fate awaited him....
  • The Liverpool reverend who was enlisted by high society to get to the bottom of a supernatural assassin....
  • The girl who experienced terrifying glimpses of the future whenever she slept with a certain pink pillow under her head....
  • The failed Liverpool comedian who was possessed by a long-dead occultist who read minds - even the minds of killers....
  • The shy stammering drama student who was transformed by the clothes of a murdered male prostitute into a sinister dandy, out for lethal revenge....
  • The Huyton bachelor who found himself living in different eras with three different wives!
  • The Cressington executive who discovered an amazing secret about his old wardrobe - and the sexual temptations that lay within it....
  • The Liverpool woman haunted by a little ghostly trumpeter who drove her to drink....
  • Liverpool’s cursed families.... Is your family cursed?

These are just some of the tales of terror, intrigue, and the unknown which you will find in Haunted Liverpool 28!

TOO PADDED OUT SOUNDED LIKE A COLLECTION FICTION

I was extremely pleased with my purchase of Haunted Liverpool vol1 , so much so that i thought i would get another copy of another volume straight away , i didn't do the logical thing and buy the nearest to next edition but decided i would get the longest edition so i could enjoy more stories and get more bang for my money , so decided to go for vol 28 .Unfortunately by buying this edition obviously the author has gained experience and knowledge and changed his style of writing dramatically to not just give a small synopsis on each ghost story and then the main story and then move onto the next story , which i totally loved as then you get tons of really interesting and different stories , but found he was reading each story with a much more i thought padded out and in some cases UN-necessary amount of over the top detail to the point they felt like made up camp fire tales , which for me anyway i didn't like , i much preferred the old style , i know many will love this style but for me there are too many padded out true ghost story books out there and the reason i enjoyed his first volume was because it wasn't , this is only my opinion , i will go back to earlier volumes and try them to see if they are more to my liking as i really loved volume 1 , but its a shame i,m guessing there's only so many ghosts in Liverpool and by volume 28 you got to pad them out if there getting few on the ground .

Another Great Collection

This is yet another collection of paranormal/supernatural stories about Liverpool. Tom Slemen is a great writer and tells these tales in a wonderful way. There are many stories dealing with all manner of the inexpiable. Again I found myself thoroughly entertained. This is an enhanced audio, so make sure you don't mind that before getting this one. The narration was very well done. Nigel Peever is a master. He has an incredible ability to give the many different voices. He truly knows how to submerge the listener into whatever story he is reading. Overall, a great listening experience I cannot recommend enough.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Keeps Getting Better and Better

Another fantastic installment in the Haunted Liverpool series by the great Tom Slemen. More baffling time slips, creatures, vampires and other oddities related with the masterful storytelling skills of Mr. Slemen. Extensively researched, as well as related to him by others, you won't find these tales anywhere else. I read this book using immersion reading while listening to the audiobook, narrated by the wonderful Nigel Peever. Another must read/listen to from this excellent series. A particular favorite was the cursed families chapter.
