I recommend this book to both true-crime and architecture buffs. The chapters alternate between two parallel stories, that of the team of architects designing the 1893 Chicago World's Fair and a vicious serial killer.

This was an engrossing book. Amazing that it is nonfiction.

It’s like thunderstruck. Two stories. He writes non-fiction like a novel which is for me much easier to swallow

I adored this book! I think you have to be a fan of non fiction to really get into it though. I was expecting to just be intrigued by the HH Holmes parts, and skim the Chicago Fair stuff, but that was the truly fascinating part of the book! So many really famous people visited the Fair and bumped into each other. I loved all the anecdotes.
