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

Wow, so was Holmes Manson before Manson was a thing? Everyone talks about how he was able to attract women and men to him. I feel so bad for these women you are hearing about who were taking in by the guy who then murdered them, and sold their skeletons for a profit to medical schools.

 

Barnham seems to be going through some bad luck trying to get the World's Fair design going.

 

The sections on Holmes though are eye opening and still are more intriguing to me as a true crime reader. Larson makes you feel as if you are standing besides these people and have the ever elusive and inhumane Holmes peering into you.


Shudder.

 

Perfect read for Halloween Bingo though.
