Summary
"Beneath California's scenic landscape lies a strange and dark side full of spine-tingling tales and frightful imagery. [This book] explores the disturbing and hair-raising stories of unexplained deaths and the ghosts who haunt the Pacific Coast. This spooky collection includes the extraordinarily odd, like the account of a coroner who 'borrowed' the stylish clothes of one dead man and even sold the corpse's head to a doctor for scientific research, and the paranormal, like the tale of a haunted, two-story house in San Francisco that was moved across town in an effort to dislodge its ghostly tenants. The attempt failed, and the San Francisco Chronicle commented that 'the neighborhood has been kept in a constant dread and torment by unearthly groans, mysterious lights, and agonized shrieks emanating from their dread habitation.' An intriguing and terrifying look at a disturbing side of the state, Creepy California promises to send chills down your spine and keep you looking over your shoulder."--Back cover
