Our modern world lies in the shadow of mysteries neither reason nor science can explain. In this unique book John Pinkney probes the eeriest of such occurrences:
- UNCANNY DEATHS In 1990 scientists exhume the withered corpse of an ancient hunter, frozen in an Alpine glacier for 53 centuries. Soon afterward, the researchers begin to die in a mysterious chain of accidents and illnesses. The chilling coincidences prompt talk of an 'Iceman's Curse'.
- UNEARTHLY INCIDENTS Three days after his funeral, a British sailor's face appears in an official photo... soon after their burial at sea, two American seamen are photographed swimming in their ship's wake... victims of a 1902 massacre haunt a Queensland sheep farm.
- FUTURES FORETOLD An obscure novel, published in 1980, describes in stunning detail Princess Di's disastrous future marriage to Prince Charles... a Scottish artist paints precognitive pictures of the 9/11 attack on New York, five years ahead in time... NASA's 2004 photos of a Saturn moon prove identical to a model used in Star Wars a decade earlier.
- MYSTIFYING MURDERS The serial killer whose cryptic codes still puzzle police... the Duke of Windsor's extraordinary role in a famous Bahamas homicide.
