BURKS, EDDIE AND CRIBBS, GILLIAN - Ghosthunter: Investigating the World of Ghosts and Spirits

London, Headline. 1996. (ISBN: 0-7472-4717-X) Paperback. The British Isles must have more ghosts and haunts per square mile than any other place of comparable size in the world. But psychic Eddie Burks has made it his life's work to move those trapped spirits on to a better place. Not an exorcist or a ghostbuster, Burks is a "sensitive" with the apparent ability to communicate with the dead. In 1993 he made international news when Coutts, the Queen's bank, asked him to investigate a spectre haunting its prestigious office in the Strand. (Burks identified the ghost as Thomas Howard, fourth duke of Norfolk, who was beheaded by Queen Elizabeth in 1572.) Soon afterwards he teamed up with freelance writer Gillian Cribbs to visit haunted places throughout England and act as psychic therapist to the troubled spirits. From palaces and manor houses to pubs and council flats, Burks contacted the ghosts while Cribbs interviewed the witnesses and checked historical details. The story of their adventures is both entertaining and thought provoking, with little trace of sensationalism. Very Good.
