The bone-chilling breeze off Lake Michigan carries unnerving whispers of days gone by.

Sinister Chicago is a comprehensive chronicle of every unknown, unusual, or otherwise unexplained event that has happened in Chicago's short history. This book will tackle the baffling beginnings of some of the most tragic events the city has witnessed and the unexplained genesis of some of Chicago's wildest landmarks. Author Kali Cramer will uncover the sinister foundations of Chicago's urban legends and unravel the facts around its most notorious murder cases. She looks below the superficial stories of Chicago's most infamous characters and chronicles the tragic accidents that and stranger things that have left their mark on the city.
