The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson. This book masterfully combines the true stories of a serial killer and the 1893 Chicago World's Fair. All spoken words are verified from written sources, but it reads like a fast-paced novel. Larson paints an incredible picture of the time period. Needs to be made into a movie!

HH Holmes newspaper article! If you like reading about serial killers, this guy's story is outrageous.
Herman Webster Mudgett (May 16, 1861 – May 7, 1896), better known under the alias of Dr. Henry Howard Holmes, was one of the first documented American serial killers in the modern sense of the term. In Chicago at the time of the 1893 World's Fair, Holmes opened a hotel which he had designed and built for himself specifically with murder in mind, and which was the location of many of his murders. While he confessed to 27 murders his actual body count could be as high as 200.
