Paul was born in Surrey in 1966 and grew up in South-West London. Through popular ghost books by writers such as Dan Farson and Mary Danby, together with late-night showings of Hammer Films, Paul became fascinated with the paranormal in both fact and fiction. In 1939, ghost hunter Harry Price claimed to have attended a seance at a private house in London where, under his own control conditions, the solid form of a little girl, who had been dead for over fifteen years, materialized among the sitters. The case of ‘Rosalie’, the spirit child, is perhaps Price’s most controversial investigation and has remained a mystery for eighty years. In his book, Paul has carried out the most detailed examination of the ‘Rosalie’ case ever undertaken, and now the true story of this extraordinary chapter in the history of twentieth century psychical research can be told.
Was Harry Price telling the truth? Had he himself been fooled by a clever trick? Or was ‘Rosalie’ genuine evidence of the reality of both life after death and spirit materialization? In this book, Paul Adams, co-author of The Borley Rectory Companion, offers the most detailed, original and comprehensive study undertaken of Harry Price and ‘Rosalie’. Extensively researched and compiled from numerous sources including the Harry Price archives at the University of London as well as private and unpublished collections, this is the true story of one of psychical research’s most enduring and engaging mysteries.
