Even in small towns, restless spirits and malevolent forces walk the streets. Oscar Mendoza knows this from personal experience. Mendoza can´t remember a time when he couldn´t see the spirits all around him. He does remember, however, when he first became unsettled by the experience. The year was 1980, and he was only four years old. He had been warned by his parents to never go down a certain alley in their town, but Mendoza decided to ignore their warning. When he walked down the street, he saw a crooked man slithering out from under an abandoned house. Mendoza escaped from the haunting´s malevolent grasp but came away from the experience respecting the intense power of spirits. Mendoza inherited his remarkable abilities from his parents, and in this collection, he includes stories about their supernatural experiences as well as his own. Mendoza´s father tells a story of encountering a baby-stealing witch in his house one dark night. His mother describes a hate-filled intruder fascinated with her brother. The Book of the Dead is the first of a series on Mendoza´s supernatural experiences. Listeners can look forward to the next volume about the spirits he encountered later in his life. 1.

Listener, you are about to embark on a road of horror, death, and cruelty. Are you ready to walk the blood-chilling path into the mind of a killer? 1. Language: English.
