Xander thinks the George Wickerman Hospital would be the perfect setting for Spirits and Specters, a role-playing game where players go on “missions” to find evidence of paranormal activities. According to local legend, tuberculosis patients were used as test subjects in medical experiments that ended tragically, and their disfigured ghosts walk the hallways of this now-abandoned building. What better location to go ghost hunting? Even though they didn’t really believe the rumors, Xander and his friends soon begin to suspect that they are not alone. Is this place actually haunted by ghosts? Or something even more terrifying?
“An immersive, page-turning ghost hunt.”
– Kirkus Reviews
“A treat for any young teen who loves action and mild frights.”
– School Library Journal
“Well-paced and has a good, creepy atmosphere...another good title from the “Orca Currents” series, and it would be a positive addition to an intermediate school library or classroom bookshelf.”
– CM: Canadian Review of Materials
