A Complimentary Haunting

Help for the Haunted: A Decade of Vera Van Slyke Ghostly Mysteries (1899-1909) chronicles thirteen cases conducted by ghost hunter Vera Van Slyke and her assistant, Lucille Parsell. “An Unanchored Man” is the sixth of the chronicles. It’s set on Cape Cod during 1903.

Once upon a time, the journalist Vera Van Slyke debunked the Spiritualist medium, Lucille Parsell. The two became ghost-hunting friends, though, and they returned to the Boston mansion where they first met in 1903. But that’s another story.

After that ghost hunt, the duo tries to get some rest on Cape Cod. It’s there that they meet “An Unanchored Man,” whose cottage is being ransacked each night by invisible entities. Reluctantly, Vera and Lucille investigate — only to find just how far the ghostly realm extends!
