The Devil in the White City



April’s Book: The Devil in the White City: A Saga of Magic and Murder at the Fair that Changed America

Note: Don’t forget to check out my updated review for last month’s book, The Good Neighbor, here.

This is a lot different from the books I would normally read! It’s a true story about an architect and a famous serial killer.  I cheated a little and started reading… it’s a bit slow so far, but hopefully it will speed up when Larson gets to the part about the murders.

Plot Summary: Erik Larson—author of #1 bestseller IN THE GARDEN OF BEASTS—intertwines the true tale of the 1893 World’s Fair and the cunning serial killer who used the fair to lure his victims to their death. Combining meticulous research with nail-biting storytelling, Erik Larson has crafted a narrative with all the wonder of newly discovered history and the thrills of the best fiction.

My Thoughts: Stay tuned.
