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

This book is in the 364 true crime section of the library but it reads like fiction and you forget it is non fiction.  The White City is the 1893 World's Fair in Chicago.  A serial killer lures women to the fair and a lot of the book is about him. Also we read about Chicago in the late 1800s and the poliltics involved in building the fair, and the opening of it.   There is so much history and it is told so well that it is hard to put down even though is is a very long book.  Check our Catalog
