Devil in the White City by Erik Larson

Erik Larson intertwines the true tale of the 1893 World's Fair and the cunning serial killer who used the fair to lure his victims to their death. Combining meticulous research with nail-biting storytelling, Erik Larson has crafted a narrative with all the wonder of newly discovered history and the thrills of the best fiction.

    I read the book years ago so probably won't have anything intelligent to contribute but look forward to meeting the group and rehearing the Chicago history and the horror. Might even try a deep fried Twinkie.
