    Review of The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic, and Madness at the Fair that Changed America by Erik Larson
    3.0 out of 5
    Well researched book
    This book shares lots of interesting facts and stories about the Columbus Exposition held in Chicago around the turn of the 19th century. It features important historical figures (Olmstead, Ferris, Buffalo Bill, etc.) and also covers the case of a serial murdered who lived in Chicago around the same time. Sometimes this dual-subject approach seems a bit disjointed, but both stories are compelling.
