Beyond the Grave Jack Fitzgerald
150pages, 5.5" x 8.5"
In the gas-lit city of nineteenth century St. John's, ghosts, demons and other manifestations from hell are said to have wandered the city at night. Darkly lit streets, old cemeteries and abandoned houses were avoided after dark like the plague.
Outport Newfoundland had its own places and ships to avoid. Newfoundland's rich historic past is just as abundant with criminal tales.
Inside you will discover crime stories which are as chilling and mysterious as those found anywhere. These new stories are not for the faint at heart as mysterious and brutal stories reach "Beyond the Grave". Telling these uncanny tales on foggy nights or when huddled around a fireplace will be an experience not easily forgotten.
