Ghost Detective 1

This book is the culmination of two years work. I spent nearly all my spare time travelling the country interviewing people who had seen, heard, or felt something paranormal. This book is not just a collection of ghost stories, it is the tale of how the book was put together. You get to meet the characters as I did. The book has 76 pages and holds around 31 interviews covering all aspects of the paranormal. . None of the events in the book have ever been published before. The locations range from places of work to peoples homes. I have tried to get away from the stereotypical castle or abbey where quite frankly the stories have been covered over and over again. I wanted the real day-to-day haunting experienced by people you can speak to one to one.

Ghost Detective II

In this book Adrian Perkins investigates deep into the world of the supernatural. 
Read peoples eyewitness accounts of ghosts, spirits, and poltergeists, in some of the most unlikely places.
Along with other stories is a full in-depth investigation of the ghosts and spirits at Twinwoods Farm Airfield in Bedfordshire, the last place Glenn Miller was seen alive. 
Complete reports of vigils and séances, plus an unexpected visit from a female spirit who was determined to be heard. 
Apart from the cover, the pictures of locations and ghost manifestations are unaltered, what you see is what we saw. 
This book can only try to do justice to the many things I have seen and heard over the past eighteen months. I have tape recordings and video evidence that you would find hair-raising. All I can do is write about it the best way I can.

Ninety pages of raw investigations, no-frills, just as it happened
