So today we have a pretty different book, it’s non-fiction which I do read regularly, however this is about unsolved mysteries which I’m really excited about. A big thank you to Anne from Random Things Tours for letting me tag along on this one.
Let’s jump in…
Tales of Mystery Unexplained…. Do you love Unexplained, cryptic, and intriguing & mysteries? Why was a man found in the same spot he disappeared, but 4 years later, with a hole in his head that no surgeons could explain, and what did this have to do with a séance, doppelgangers, and the assassination of Abraham Lincoln?
Why did a man write the Fibonacci sequence as a clue and tell a stranger he was “Looking for the Beast,” before he disappeared in the barren plains of a desert?
Why did five boys run from their car into the snowy wilderness, to certain death, yet not try to save themselves, at all? They found food but did not eat it. What were they running from? And why?
Who are Hecate? And what did they have to do with people disappearing in the countryside of England?
How did an introverted lady die on the top of an ancient fairy mound, on a remote island: her face locked in an expression of terror?
Why did a man die of fright atop a coal pile after disappearing for days, and why could no scientists identify the strange ointment found on his body? Where had he been? And what had happened to him?
How could a man be found after a plane crash, lying on a moor, with no injuries at all; yet his body had not been there when the plane had crashed and searchers had combed the area multiple times looking for him.
Also featuring an in-depth investigation into the strange death of Elisa Lam, found dead in a water tower on the top of a hotel roof in LA. Who were the two men who came to see her, and what was in the mystery box they gave her?
I absolutely love reading about unsolved mysteries and this book has plenty! However I made the mistake of reading this in bed and it gave me a serious case of the heebie jeebies and sent a shiver down my spine!
Some stories were extremely short and didn’t seem to have been dissected as much as others which is the only negative thing I have to say about this book. I only knew about one of these mysteries beforehand so I found it super interesting to soak up all these new unsolved cases. We have a pretty wide variety which kept me on my toes, there’s definitely something to interest everyone in here.
If you love reading about the seemingly impossible and unexplained then I would definitely recommend this book!
