The book was enjoyable enough, and it was interesting to read about the supposed haunts of this epicenter of the rich and famous. However, the author's details were frequently incorrect. In one instance, she stated that the Pantages Theater was haunted by the ghost of Howard Hughes, citing that he was a heavy smoker and the smell of his cigarettes lingers on. Wrong! Hughes detested smoking and was once seen plucking a cigarette from then-girlfriend Katharine Hepburn's mouth. The "Ghost Stories of" series generally has accurate details about the areas in which the stories take place, or about their backgrounds, but this one did not. In my mind, its credibility is dubious at best, and I would not recommend it.
