The story of two men's obsessions with the Chicago World's Fair, one its architect, the other a murderer. The Devil in the White City draws the reader into a time of magic and majesty, made all the more appealing by a supporting cast of real-life characters, including Buffalo Bill, Theodore Dreiser, Susan B. Anthony, Thomas Edison, Archduke Francis Ferdinand, and others.
This is for those of us who love detective fiction. Specifically, the Agatha Christie kind. The whodunnits. The kind where someone is murdered in a sleepy English village, and then all the safely kept secrets start to spill out. It's by a writer for "Midsomer Murders," so he knows his stuff. It's also a brilliant novel-within-a novel, with plenty of twists.
