“Tapping into our obsession with true crime, Kraus presents us with a paranormal tale that will definitely make you sleep with the lights on.”
On June 1, 2017, in Jonny, Iowa, six people were killed at a Burger City franchise. Prior to the murders, the Burger City restaurant endured nine months of alleged paranormal activity. These hauntings have become known as the “Burger City Poltergeist.”
Perhaps you’ve heard about it through social media, or maybe someone sent you a strange video clip. You might have even seen a story about it flipping through the channels late at night.
For the first time ever, you can read “the most exhaustively documented haunting in history,” presented by bestselling writer Daniel Kraus, including new and exclusive information about the haunting, and first-time interviews with the living survivors.
Why we’re excited about this book:
Our readers should be very familiar with the work of Daniel Kraus. The author of The Life and Death of Zebulon Finch, The Monster Variations, Rotters, Bent Heavens, The Teddies Saga, The Shape of Water, and the bestselling The Living Dead (with George A. Romero), Kraus has also worked in the comics side of the horror genre with The Autumnal. Tapping into our obsession with true crime, Kraus presents us with a paranormal tale that will definitely make you sleep with the lights on. Alma Katsu (The Hunger, The Fervor) calls The Ghost That Ate Us “… ingenious on so many levels. True crime meets horror meets pop culture and social commentary, circles back to full-blown horror, and BURNS IT ALL DOWN. A brilliant piece of writing.”
Releasing from Raw Dog Screaming Press 12 July 2022, The Ghost That Ate Us: The Tragic True Story of the Burger City Poltergeist by Daniel Kraus is available for pre-order now.
