“I would rather be dead than go back there. Back to Ashford—the town that Satan calls home.” In Three Days in Ashford by Ty Tracey, Daniel Hallowell is a successful paranormal investigator with his own television show and a lucrative contract from the network that owned its rights. A young man reaches out to him and his crew to investigate a decades-long series of inexplicable disappearances in Ashford—a long-abandoned town in the Ohio countryside. Although he is reluctant, this piques Daniel's interest and he agrees, bringing his eclectic and experienced crew to investigate the town. However, the authorities don't want anyone to know about its existence. Unfortunately, it will be a harrowing experience that they would come to regret for the rest of their lives.

There’s a number of backstories of other paranormal encounters that the characters had in the past in the early chapters-either as a team or personally-which are interesting to read, adding mini ghost stories to the main one. For fans of the genre, these will definitely be a welcome bonus but I was more eager to find out about the strange happenings in Ashford. Although I didn’t gravitate toward any particular one of the protagonists, they are all well fleshed-out to move the plot forward and bring realistic elements as well as justify the story premise. Despite its demonic theme, Ty Tracey's Three Days in Ashford is more psychological horror than gore. All in all, an intriguing read especially for readers who are passionate about paranormal investigations.
