This one is about the Chicago Fire that will always be part of Chicago's history. <http://www.amazon.com/The-Great-Chicago-Fire-1871/dp/0671036033/ref=cm_lmf_tit_12>
I really enjoyed Caleb Carr's books The Alienist and The Angel of Darkness. They both take place in New York City just before the turn of the 20th century. The group solves some murders in each using the just-emerging techniques of forensic science, psychiatry, and psychological profiling. Another author to look at is Steve Berry. He has about 8 books out which are very well researched historically. The Amber Room, The Templar Legacy, The Third Secret, etc. Enjoiy!
