Spontaneous Human Combustion


    The startling details of the first in-depth research for many years into the baffling mystery of spontaneous human combustion are revealed in this book. Determined to avoid the hackneyed 'solutions' of the past, the authors, both experienced researchers in the field of paranormal happenings, have explored the entire subject rationally from within - interviewing everyone from fire officers to victims who have survived this horrific experience. They assess the evidence in an objective manner and pose searching questions that were never asked before. In the process, they uncover a disturbing pattern of fear, hidden evidence and attempted suppression of scientific mystery. The authors first became concerned by these problems in 1985 when invited to an inquest by local police. They were able to conduct a detailed investigation of eyewitnesses and evidence to compare with officialdom's attempts to face the issues involved. Seeking neither to prove nor to disprove the reality of SHC, they chose to start from first principles, collating all the available evidence and dealing with the several questions which arose during an enquiry laden with obstacles. Does the phenomenon of spontaneous human combustion represent a natural energy force unleashed within our modern world? Can it unexpectedly relate to nuclear fusion, pollution, ecology or even enigmas such as crop circles? The answers are as amazing as they are shocking.
