Book Review: HAINT BLUE: PART TWO by Jenny Scott and Kim Johnston
Jenny Scott didn’t really accept that two deceased brothers were to blame for all that she and her family had been through. She suspected demonic activity masquerading as something else. Given the nature of the haunting, it’s hard to blame her. If it WAS the two ghost brothers to blame, however, they got what was coming to them, in the most unintentionally hilarious way possible. (Well, *I* found it hilarious.) One of the psychics called in the ghost of their mother on them!
The first installment of HAINT BLUE documented the haunting at the Rockford, Alabama house Ms. Scott and her family occupied for a short time beginning in 2012. This second installment covers the investigation that followed, with Ms. Johnston taking over the narrative. It’s a hell of a story, involving a series of unsolved murders and a “Voodoo preacher”, a string of tragedies, and an unfinished True Crime novel by the legendary author Harper Lee in the vein of her friend Truman Capote. This story served as the basis for an episode of the series PARANORMAL WITNESS, but the show couldn’t cover it all in a mere 45 minutes.
The story is fascinating and these two books are imminently readable. Un-put-down-able, if you will. I give them my highest possible recommendation. They are chilling, captivating, and undeniably, unalterably Southern. Just buy ’em, alright? You won’t be sorry. And if you don’t believe in the supernatural, you just might by the time you finish these books.
