The Devil in the White City offers a double narrative, the interlacing stories of two fin de siècle master-builders, one of whom was a real life monster. The first is architect and city planner Daniel Hudson Burnham, the polymath who directed the near-miraculous creation of the Chicago World's Fair of 1893. The other is Dr. Henry H. Holmes, a Gilded Age serial killer who constructed a castle of death skillfully disguised as "the World's Fair Hotel." A bestseller in hardcover; now in trade paperback and NOOK Book.
