  A killer lurks in the dark streets, victimizing servant girls and Austin becomes the first American city to claim a serial killer.  The spirits of convicts wander amidst the manicured grounds of the Texas State Capitol while inside a man assassinated in 1903 still haunts the corridors. These are just a few of the strange, informative and frightening tales of Haunted Austin. Within the book lies evidence that the frontier bravado legendary in so many Texas men and women lives on long after death.
