"Spine-tingling ghost stories . . . Thrilling tales of the Bluff City's past" (Memphis Reads). Much like its muddy riverbanks, the mid-South is flooded with tales of shadowy spirits lurking among us. Beyond the rhythm of the blues and tapping of blue suede shoes is a history steeped in horror. From the restless souls of Elmwood Cemetery to the voodoo vices of Beale Street, phantom hymns of the Orpheum Theatre and Civil War soldiers still looking for a fight, peer beyond the shadows of the city's most historic sites. Author and lifelong resident Laura Cunningham expertly blends fright with history and presents the ghostly legends from Beale to Bartlett, Germantown to Collierville, in this one-of-a-kind volume no resident or visitor should be without. Includes photos! "There are plenty of places in Memphis to go where the spirits aren't in costume or getting paid to make you scream. Laura Cunningham reveals all the terrifying details in [ Haunted Memphis]." —WREG.com
