The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic, and Madness at the Fair That Changed America by Erik Larson

dark hopeful mysterious


A fascinating look at the trainwreck and triumph that was the Chicago World's Fair. The author spins a narrative perfectly balanced with hard facts, following the major players in the building of the fair as well as a serial killer using the lure of the exposition to murder young people in Chicago. This kept me on my toes and was a great history lesson with plenty of drama to heighten the intrigue.
