Publisher's Summary

The Devil in the White City: A Saga of Magic and Murder at the Fair that Changed America | Summary
Book Preview:
In 1912, Daniel Burnham and his family are aboard the RMS Olympic, the second largest cruise ship in the world and sister ship to the Titanic. Burnham has gained fame and wealth from aiding in the construction of the World's Fair at Chicago in 1893. Nearly two decades later, Burnham is 62 years old and unable to enjoy the cruise ship outside of his room due to his foot injury. While he's confined, Burnham delivers a message to Frank Millet, a dear friend aboard the Titanic. In light of the Titanic's accident, the message is rejected. This news distresses Burnham, because Millet was one of the only living supporters of the Chicago Fair since its completion in 1893, and inspires him to share the events of the era.
