I read this book for one of my book clubs as a true crime story But it was so much than that The identity of the killer was known from the start which was not a problem The real focus of the book was on the building of The White City aka the the 1892 93 World s Fair held in Chicago but on the individuals involved in the design and creation of the fairgrounds which were indeed a city The killer is one of many incredible people involved in the design creation and success of the fair and its impact on their lives careers and death I learned than I expected about both Chicago and the many prominent people involved with the fair Daniel Burnham Frederic Law Olmsted George Ferris guess what he became famous for to name a few And not forgetting the killer and the hunt to find proof to arrest him for his crimes undertaken by a determined tenacious police detective Not for everyone but if you are interested in social history this is well worth reading
