The paranormal researcher and author of Haunted Nevada presents “a macabre compilation of the eeriest haunts of Sin City” (Kalila K. Smith, author of New Orleans Ghosts, Voodoo, and Vampires). With its world-famous casinos and extravagant floor shows, Las Vegas is known as one of America’s liveliest cities. And true to its reputation, even the dead are especially active here. In Haunting Las Vegas, Janice Oberling offers a rare look beyond the neon glitz and into reports of ghostly sightings and lurid histories of The City that Never Sleeps. Spirits of all kinds haunt the halls and corridors of the Las Vegas Strip, including apparitions of its most famous residents. There are many tales of Elvis idling backstage at the Hilton and Liberace appearing at his favorite restaurant, Carluccio’s. The legendary mobster Bugsy Segal is known to make spectral appearances, as is Shoney, the Luxor Hotel’s once-celebrated show elephant.

From Chicago Public Library Foundation award-winner Ursula Bielski comes the first, shocking look at the ghosts of Old Joliet Prison. In the fall of 2018 Ursula gathered together a team of veteran paranormal researchers to host the first ever paranormal investigations and ghost tours at one of the world's most notorious penitentiaries: the Old Joliet Prison. Illinois' second state penitentiary, the prison was constructed in the mid 1850s, and hosted thousands of murderers, rapists, thieves and confidence men during its nearly 150 years of operation. In addition to the crimes these men--and women--perpetrated before their incarcerations, once inside the chaos continued. Countless numbers of stabbings, shootings, rapes and suicides occurred inside the prison walls, along with hundreds of deaths from disease and illness. Now, step inside the abandoned cell blocks and darkened prison yard, the old prison hospital and the lost convict cemetery on the hill. The ghosts of Old Joliet Prison will hold you captive indeed.

Through all its transformations and reinventions over the past century, "Sin City" has consistently been regarded by artists and cultural critics as expressing in purest form, for better or worse, an aesthetic and social order spawned by neon signs and institutionalized indulgence. In other words, Las Vegas provides a codex with which to confront the problems of the West and to track the people, materials, ideas, and virtual images that constitute postregional space. Morta Las Vegas considers Las Vegas and the problem of regional identity in the American West through a case study of a single episode of the television crime drama CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. Delving deep into the interwoven events of the episode titled "4 × 4," but resisting a linear, logical case-study approach, the authors draw connections between the city--a layered and complex world--and the violent, uncanny mysteries of a crime scene. Morta Las Vegas reveals nuanced issues characterizing the emergence of a postregional West, moving back and forth between a geographical and a procedural site and into a place both in between and beyond Western identity.
