H H Holmes is questionable the most genius of all American serial killers. The book starts with the words written by the man himself and if was told to a jury it would be quite convincing. The author ha done readers a great justice in his legwork to compile all the research. The book ends with a more factual telling of Holmes evil deads and will leave the uninformed asking why this man has not recieved more fame.
