Something to read in CHICAGO

The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic, and Madness at the Fair that Changed America. In 1893, a serial killer used the Chicago World’s Fair as a lure to bring young women to the city where they would meet a horrific fate. Erik Larson sets this story- unbelievable but true- against the challenges confronting the architect, engineers and landscape gardeners racing to get the fair ready on time. The print edition was rightly called a ‘page turner’. (What do you call a ‘page turner’ in a Kindle edition?)
