• "A book as fascinating as any detective story"

    Daily Mail
  • "Blum presents a fascinating story in a very readable but accurate style...the climax of the book, as gripping as fiction, is an account of the séances held after the psychic researchers themselves had died"

  • "Fascinating book...Blum can tell a good story. Compelling material"

    Time Out
  • "As you read this book, your eye will be drawn to the corners of the room, to look for shadows, and to the curtains to check for unnatural billowing. It is spooky. This is history as you want it to be written. When I picked this one up, I would have told you I didn't believe in ghosts. And now I'm not so sure."

    William Leith, daily Telegraph
  • "Deborah Blum's Ghost Hunters is a fascinating, moving and, most importantly, paradigm-challenging account of the lives and works of the many scientists and thinkers who championed the cause of psychical research"
