Publisher's Summary

The Devil in the White City tells two different stories, of two different men. One is Daniel Burnham, architect and organizer of the 1893 World's Fair. The other is H. H. Holmes, the serial killer who found his prey in the fair's crowds.
Soon to be a Martin Scorcese film starring Leonardo DiCaprio, The Devil in the White City is an entertaining book with a unique way of looking at an important moment in US history.
Disclaimer: This book serves as an accompaniment to the best-seller The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson. It is meant to broaden the listener's understanding of the book and to offer insights which can easily be overlooked. You should order a copy of the actual book before listening to this summary.

Not OK.

I think it should be illegal for a mere review to use a book's copyrighted cover to advertise itself. I thought I was buying the book! Foul!
