Maybe some things are better left unexplained...

'A grisly treat' Financial Times on the podcast

Based on the 'world's spookiest podcast' of the same name comes Unexplained: a book of ten real-life mysteries which might be best left unexplained. . .


What can a case of demonic possession in 1970's Germany teach us about free will?

What might we learn about how we construct reality from the case of a poltergeist in the Fens?

And what can a supposed instance of reincarnation in Middlesbrough tell us about how we develop a concept of the self?

Taking incidents once thought of as supernatural or paranormal and questioning whether radical ideas in science might provide a new but equally extraordinary explanation, Unexplained asks what real-life unexplained events can reveal of our unique human experience.

'These mysteries are all the creepier for being true' Tatler
