About this title


San Diego Specters is an entertaining investigation into haunted sites-some famous and others obscure-throughout San Diego County. Fresh witness accounts are combined with genuine historical research on each of the suspected haunted places. Haunted sites examined include the Hotel Del Coronado, the world-renowned Whaley House and other historic buildings in Old Town San Diego. Firsthand reports of ghost and poltergeist phenomena are blended with historic data to provide an unorthodox and engaging portrait of spectral San Diego. All haunted locations listed in the book have been thoroughly checked by the author, John Lamb, a trained detective with 22 years of law enforcement experience.


"John Lamb has done Southern Californians (and anyone else for that matter) a literary favor by writing a book that not only covers both well-known and little-known ghostly hauntings in the area, but also includes curious and fascinating vignettes of history." -- L.B. Taylor, Author of The Ghosts of Virginia, The Ghosts of Williamsburg, The Ghosts of Richmond, Civil War Ghosts of Virginia, The Ghosts of Tidewater

"John Lamb's new book, about San Diego ghosts is the sort of ghost book you just could not put down. Authoritatively researched, well written, and up-to-date, with both well-known cases and newly found ghost stories, it turns hauntings from fearful to exciting. Not to be missed, especially for Californians." -- Professor Dr. Hans Holzer, Author of Ghosts and Hans Holzer's Travel Guide to Haunted Houses

"Mr. John Lamb takes the reader along with him as he uncovers the mysteries of haunted houses in his unique book. Told in a clear, no nonsense style, this book captures all the thrills of ghost hunting. Real ghosts are not the things depicted in film and television-they do not pounce and surge like the creations of special effects. But, there is a special excitement in unraveling the mystery of a place dogged by paranormal events. Mr. Lamb uses his years of police experience to approach this study with both professionalism and a desire to "get the facts." In all of my two decades of investigating haunted houses in California I have never read a book that examines psychic investigation as well or as honestly as Mr. Lamb's. I believe this is a must read for anyone interested in the study of the phenomena of ghosts." -- Richard L. Senate, Author of Ghost Stalker's Guide to Haunted California

Some events, like the sighting of the phantom dog "Dolly" at the Whalley House, were witnessed by the author himself while giving a tour of San Diego's Old Town... Mr. Lamb has done the work and put together an important book on the many places rumored to have ghosts in San Diego and surrounding areas. His narration will both mystify and surprise you. You may find yourself using it as a ghostly guide book to some of the most historical and colorful places in Southern California. Who knows, may be you will have your own encounter with the unknown! Do ghosts exist? I am convinced of it. After reading this book you too may well believe such things are possible. -- Richard Senate, Author Ghost Stalker's Guide to Haunted California.
