"This isn't your average travel book--and these aren't your average tourist destinations! Take a wild ride through hidden Windy City history--often dark, sometimes inexplicable, and occasionally glamorous. Meet the gangsters, ghosts, serial killers and celebrities that only Chicago could produce. This journey into eclectic Chicago lore includes: 19 spine-tingling creepy sites (Resurrection Mary, Lonely Ghost of Lake Forest, St. Rita's and so many more); all things Al Capone (seven notable Scarface sites and the St. Valentine's Day Massacre); other Outfit bigshot hangouts, graves and hit locations; Monsters of the Midway like Holmes, Gacy, Speck and more; murder and mayhem featuring 12 killers; and literally dozens of celebrity homes and hangouts from downtown to the suburbs and beyond!" -- Provided by publisher.
