Michael McCarty here. I interviewed John Brassard Jr. for several chapters in the book: GHOSTS OF THE QUAD CITIES by Michael McCarty & Mark McLaughlin.
John wrote this 3 Part series, which will run in September 2020, October 2020 and finish up in November 2020.

GHOSTS OF THE QUAD CITIES, co-written by Michael McCarty and Mark McLaughlin. Now available in Kindle, trade paperback and hardcover.
Divided by state lines and the Mississippi River, the Quad Cities share a common haunted heritage. If anything, the seam that runs through the region is especially rife with spirits, from the Black Angel of Moline’s Riverside Cemetery to the spectral Confederate POWs of Arsenal Island. Of course, the city centers have their own illustrious supernatural residents – the Hanging Ghost occupies Davenport’s City Hall, while the Phantom Washwoman wanders Bettendorf’s Central Avenue. At Igor’s Bistro in Rock Island, every day is Halloween. Michael McCarty and Mark McLaughlin hunt down the haunted lore of this vibrant Midwestern community.

by Michael McCarty & John Brassard Jr.
Introduction by The Amazing Kreskin
Afterword by Rick Lopez of Igor’s Bistro
Like the mighty Mississippi River that cleaves the Quad Cities, the region’s history can trap the unwary in some unexpected eddies. Peer through the fog of the past to catch a glimpse of the Tinsmith Ghost of Rock Island or the river serpent with a price on its head. Get the back story on the Banshee of Brady Street, read the 1869 report on a Bigfoot sighting near East Davenport and run the numbers on local UFO activity. From phantom footsteps in the Renwick Mansion to a mausoleum heist in Chippiannock Cemetery, Michael McCarty and John Brassard Jr. trace a path through the shadowy heritage of the Quad Cities.
