A few years ago, my friend J recommended “The Devil in the White City” by Erik Larson.
We were both attending our friend S’s wedding in Chicago, and J mentioned that this book was a true story about the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair and a serial killer operating under the guise of a doctor during that era.
Although I downloaded the book right away (lest I forget), I didn’t get around to starting it until my trip to Chicago earlier this week.
Wow! What a page turner. Although I usually don’t get into true crime or historical non-fiction books, this one is gripping.
