Summary

Steve Mera had been investigating paranormal phenomena for many years, and had never seen anything that shook him to his very foundations. All that changed in 1996, when he was called in with his team to look into the bizarre occurrences taking place at a small bungalow in Rochdale, Manchester, England. Flying objects, disembodied voices, phantom smells and sounds, and strangest of all, copious falls of water seemingly coming from nowhere plagued the Gardner family for nearly a year. What Steve experienced during the investigation was enough to make him question his entire career path, and remains one of only a handful of cases that he is completely unable to rationally explain. This account, written by horror author Jenny Ashford from interviews conducted with Steve about the case, is a bone-chilling foray into the paranormal that will make even the most ardent skeptic sleep with the lights on.

Great story

Couldn't it be narrated by someone British? American English put me off, otherwise great book.

Rochdale: the Northern Enfield

Mysterious water rains down from the ceiling of a post-war Manchester bungalow. Sounds of ghostly footsteps and coughs, strange smells, objects moving of their own accord. This is the true story of the poltergeist activity that plagued a UK family in the mid-1990s

The case was investigated by Steve Mera (of the Manchester Association of Paranormal Investigators & Training) who worked with the family at their home during the heatwave of 1996. Jenny was approached to write the book of the incident after Steve had read the Mammoth Mountain Poltergeist (also available from Amazon and Audible). Steve provided the original case files and testimonies and then collaborated with Jenny Ashford who wrote their story in a factual but more accessible format.

This is a short audiobook (clocking in at just under 2 hours long) that I managed to finish in a single day during my commute to work and back.In a similar manner to Mammoth Mountain, the final chapter compares the event to similar poltergeist outbreaks across the world.

Factual based account of an actual haunting

The author and narrator provide a factual account of happenings at a haunting in England. Great narration with the appropriate tone and pace. I only wish it were long because this is my favorite author and always leaves me wanting more.
