Author Dianne Marshall draws on Halifax's rich history to recount stories about the city's people and places. Along with the high points of the city's past, she recalls murders, scandals and a wide range of colourful characters that give Halifax its reputation as a spirited town -- in more ways than one!

With full-colour photographs of the locations these stories are linked to, this is an entertaining read that residents and visitors will enjoy. It's a great followup to Dianne's last book, the bestseller True Stories of Nova Scotia's Past.
