The Devil In The White City By Erik Larson

( A Serial Killer And The Architect )

SYNOPSIS

The architect who led construction of the great Chicago world’s fair of 1893,and the prolific serial killer who used the fair as a lure. Just blocks from the fairground,the killer built a hotel of horrors equipped with an acid vat,dissection table and cremation.

A story of two men whose fates linked. The architect was Daniel H.Burnham,the driving force behind the white city,the massive visionary landscape of white buildings set in a wonderworld of canals and gardens. The killer was H.H.Holmes,a handsome doctor with striking blue eyes. He used the attraction of the great fair and his own devilish charms to lure scores of young women to their deaths.

While Burnham overcame politics,infighting,personality clashes and Chicago’s infamous weather to transform the swamps of Jackson Park into the greatest show on Earth,Holmes built his own edifice just west of the fairground. He called it The World’s Fair Hotel. In reality it was a Torture Palace,a Gas Chamber,a Crematorium.
