With its alluring hospitality, legendary cuisine and transcendent music, Memphis is truly a quintessential Southern city.  But lurking behind the barbeque and blue suede shoes is a dark history checkered with violence and disarray.  Revisit the mass murder of 1866 that took more than fifty lives, the infamous Alice Mitchell case of the 1890s and a string of unthinkable twentieth-century sins.  Author and lifelong Memphian Teresa Simpson explores some of the River City's most menacing crimes and notorious characters in this riveting ride back through the centuries.
