The Devil In the White City-Erik Larsen

Published by at 1:36 pm under Books

A “confusion” of two stories both of which are set in Chicago near the end of the 19th century. One is the effort to gain national endorsement and then build the 1893 World’s. A mamouth undertaking that consumed many people and live, but ended up with a spectacular White City. The other story is that of on of the first “serial killers” who lived near the site of the fair and preyed on and apparently killed numerous women and children . Informative and entertaining. Especially if you have any connection to Chicago.
