    [synopsis] => This authoritative true crime biography reveals the full story of America's first serial killer and his killing spree during the 1893 Chicago World's Fair.

With original research into never-before-studied sources-including letters, articles, legal documents, and archives-H. H. Holmes uncovers the true story of Holmes and how the modern legend around him evolved. Author Adam Selzer reveals how much of the Holmes story as it is widely known today came from reporters who were far from the action, an incredibly unqualified new police chief, and lies from Holmes himself. 

This illuminating true crime biography offers a nuanced portrait of turn-of-the-century America, the eccentric cast of characters who were in and around Holmes's infamous "Murder Castle", and the mysterious background of Holmes himself.
