    Two men embodied an element of the great dynamic that characterized America's rush toward the 20th century: Daniel Hudson Burnham, the brilliant director of works for the 1893 Chicago World's Fair; and Henry H. Holmes, who used the attraction of the great fair and his own satanic charms to lure scores of young women to their deaths.

    Overall

    This is an enthralling account of history. I listened to most of it in my car and then when I was on the last disc I brought it into the house so that I could finish. My husband came home from work and found me sitting in the floor staring at the stereo.

    I love history! Most of my friends think I'm insane, they never even venture into that section of the bookstore. I've given this book (hardcover version) to several friends as gifts...told them enough of the story to get them hooked and then let them know it was all true.

    High School teacher's should use this book to show students that history isn't about memorizing dates and names but about understanding the lives, situations, decisions, mistakes and triumphs of those that came before us...and then using those experiences in your time.

    My only complaint about the audio book was that it was abridged...I read the hardcover as well and every word was worth hearing.
