Where the Tour Buses Don't Go: CHICAGO’S Hidden Sites of the Mysterious...


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!
