Riveting

by Karen K on Aug 16, 2013

I bought this book because of my interest in serial killers, the Victorian era... and genealogy. H.H. Holmes, whose real name was Herman Webster Mudgett, was a distant cousin to me on quite a few lines, our common ancestors having been the first settlers of Hampton, New Hampshire. He was a ... More

This is a fascinating book. Anyone who is interested in the history of the city of Chicago should read it. There is also a lot about the history of America. I highly recommend this book. More

Interesting history of Chicago

by Melba C on Jan 19, 2012

I love books written about this period in time. An enjoyable read, but I think I would have enjoyed it more if my family had lived in Chicago. More

Great read!

by Nelly4 on Jun 16, 2011

As a history and psychology teacher, this was the best of both worlds. Very easy to get into, couldn't put it down, wonderful details, absolutely absorbing. I really liked the pace and how each chapter switched so you were always wanting more details! This one's a keeper and I'm sure I'll reference ... More

Which of his books is your favorite?

Loved, loved, loved this book. Also read the one about the dust storms and the one about Galveston. This one is by far my favorite.
