Price's next book following the publication of The Most Haunted House in England was his autobiography 'Search for Truth'.  Includes all his famous & most important adventures, most notably Borley Rectory. Leaves from a Psychist's Case-Book and the Confessions of a Ghost-Hunter are included as well as his early days, his interests in archaeology and coin-collecting, his early involvement with conjuring & spiritualism and the foundation of the National Laboratory of Psychical Research. The fascination and obsession with Price's work remains undimished, he was recently potrayed by Rafe Spall in 'Harry Price Ghost Hunter' and he inspired the character of Harry Reed in the 2020 film 'The Banishing' which was based on details of the haunting of Borley Rectory.
