I. Road tripping: phantom hitchers and "hungry" fences. Chasing a favorite phantom: in pursuit of Resurrection Mary ; Mexico on the Calumet: a migrant legend finds a home ; The Forest Park flapper: another Resurrection, another Mary ; Following in their footsteps: the littlest hitcher ; A man in the road: sightings at St. Casimir ; Steeped in mystery: a drowning on the North Shore. -- II. Dead and buried: in a city of cemeteries. Saints and sinners: Mount Carmel's motley crew ; The restless rich: Rosehill and Graceland ; In a bad place: the puzzle of Bachelors Grove ; Echoes up north: White Cemetery and St. Mary's. -- III. A secret society: the lure and lore of Archer Avenue. -- IV. An active spiritual life: lasting legends and fresh miracles in Chicago's religious communities. A saint among us: Chicago's miracle child ; Brother to brother: a very Holy Family ; A terribly tangled web: unraveling the Peabody legend ; The Queen of Heaven apparitions ; That day at St. Rita's. -- V. An inexplicable residue: the endurance of tragedy. In the beginning: a massacre at Fort Dearborn ; Dem bones: the questionable end of John Lalime ; Buried alive? A secret in the Cloes Brickyard ; Shadows on the Chicago: the Eastland remembers ; A case solved: the phantom circus leaves town ; Making his mark: a hero's handprint ; To Bugs, with love: the St. Valentine's Day massacre ; Show of shows: curtains for a very dirty rat ; Our Lady of the Angels ; Written on the wind: the last ride of the Grimes sisters ; The death of Ioan Culianu ; A cynic's survival: Clarence Darrow's Hyde Park Heaven. -- VI. The devil himself: Chicagoans encounter the evil one. Steppin' with Satan: when the devil came to Bridgeport ; Dealing with the devil at Hull House ; 'The scariest ghost or whatever it was': memories of St. Michael's ; Rumors of evil: Satan and the Forest Preserve District of Cook County. -- VII. The inevitable haunted houses: Ghosts of houses past ; Poltergeists ; Ghosts of houses present. -- VIII. Believing in Mary Worth: myth, imagination, and Chicago's school spirits. -- IX. A different world: the Native American connection. -- X. A military presence. Great Lakes revelations ; The phantoms of Fort Sheridan. -- XI. Eat, drink, and be scary: imbibing with the otherworldly
