Hidden Files is a collection of true stories of unexplained events from law enforcement officers across the United States and Canada. Most of the incidents involve actual police cases or occurred while the officer was on duty, a few entail personal, off-duty experience -- but all are thought-provoking.
-- Provides a look at unexplained phenomena from a decidedly different perspective
-- U.S. government considers police officers to be some of the most credible witnesses of unexplained and paranormal events because they are trained to accurately observe, think analytically, and solve "mysteries"
-- A fascinating topic grounded in true and amazing stories
Ghosts, UFOs, and other reports of paranormal phenomena often test the bounds of credibility, but can such reports be easily dismissed when the witness is an officer of the law trained to make calm, detailed observations under the most stressful situations? In Hidden Files Sue Kovach presents some of law enforcement's most intriguing (and often repressed) files from around the United States. For example, while looking for a woman and her son, Deputy Rich Strasser believes he was guided by the spirit of the deceased mother to find the wreckage of her car and her young son still alive inside it. Officer Ron Chancey recounts being chased by a boomerang-shaped flying object in Florida. And Brian Gosselin shares his encounter with a Sasquatch-type creature in Washington county, New York. These strange reports by respected police officers rival anything on television's X-Files, because they're not works of fiction, but events that actually occurred on the streets of America.
