I don't usually read books about murder and serial killers, but this one was good and I could not put the book down. Set during the Chicago World’s Fair of 1893, which was nicknamed the “White City”, this book is a suspense story about a serial killer, Dr. H. H. Holmes, who used the "White City" to lure victims to his World’s Fair Hotel, designed for murder.

Not usually my genre or time era, but I did enjoy this.

.Love Love Love this book

The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic, and Madness at the Fair That Changed America (Crown Publishers, ISBN 0609608444) is a 2003 non-fiction book by Erik Larson presented in a novelistic style. The book is set in Chicago circa 1893, intertwining the true tales of Daniel H. Burnham, the architect behind the 1893 World's Fair, and Dr. H.H. Holmes, the serial killer who lured his victims to their death in his elaborately constructed "Murder Castle."

Take along a book. This vintage print shows a father and son reading while camping. c. 1910

The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic, and Madness at the Fair that Changed America

The rare case of book and film both being extraordinary. Yes, it is one view of the antebellum South and Reconstruction and there are many viewpoints and stories from that time. Remember it was written when there were generations alive who survived that time.

Great book.
