Old Central School is closing for good. Why? Because it's reportedly haunted! Creepy noises, flickering lights, objects moving without explanation, Old Central has it all.

use deductive reasoning to determine what the crime was, how it happened, and whodunit.

Review quote

"I love a good mystery, especially when there is a ghost involved and even more so when I can be a part of solving it! The Ghost of Old Central School has it all. Rumor has it that Old Central School is haunted. Strange noises, stolen items, and flickering lights have people scared enough that Old Central School is ready to close its doors. But maybe there's something more to the story? The Ghost of Old Central School takes readers on an edge-of-your seat adventure to discover what's really happening in the so-called haunted halls. Can you figure out what's really going on at Old Central School?"

-Natalie Fowler, paranormal investigator, historian, and author
