In short, it was an excellent book, great story, and very well written.
"Devil in the White City" is an excellent book about the Chicago World Fair and H.H. Holmes, a serial killer in Chicago at the time.
It was fascinating to learn so much about the history of Chicago and the inventions that came out of the world's fair.
