Overview

Popularized in the bestselling book The Devil in the White City, H. H. Holmes has gone down in history as America’s first—and possibly most prolific—serial killer. A master swindler who changed names about as often as most people change coats, Holmes built a three-story building down the street from the World’s Fair site in Chicago in the early 1890s.

Join Chicago paranormal authority Adam Selzer as he separates the truth behind the myth. Did H. H. Holmes really kill 200 people? How did he do it? And why? How did he keep his three wives from finding out about each other? And how did he kill people in such a crowded building without anyone noticing?

This e-book includes an excerpt from Adam Selzer's popular book Your Neighborhood Gives Me the Creeps.
