BLURB

There are countless ghost towns in the deserts of Nevada, Arizona or Colorado such as Nevada City, Goldfield or Rhyolite. These were built in the mid-1800s, when gold and silver were discovered in nearby areas. The towns thrived until every last opportunity dried up and left, most places have been abandoned ever since. But wandering visitors do not always feel alone. These towns are popular locations for shooting western movies and it’s enough if one person hears footsteps in the attic, the second one would soon see a little girl dressed in Victorian era clothing. After a little research, they’d soon find out about all the murders that took place in the hotel, unsolved mysteries, disappearances and the like. But it’s not necessary to have an actual murder case to witness paranormal activities. After Stephen King’s book The Shining was published, The Stanley Hotel, which inspired King in the portrayal of the Overlook Hotel, suddenly became home to ghosts and inexplicable activities. Maybe the Chinese owners of Shine Inn would have been thrilled by the business opportunity of continuing as a fake Shining hotel if they hadn’t mysteriously disappeared with the whole town decades ago.
