    historically interesting.

    I enjoyed his devil in white city more, but this was still worth reading.

    Neat history

    Both history of the Chicago worlds fair and the medical psychopathic persona of a serial killer are extremely well done. Also a hood commentary on development of the American Society at the turn of the Century.

    Interesting if a little slim

    This was an interesting story though not as good as his "Devil in the White City". I expected a bit more dramatic intersection between Crippen and Marconi. The Crippen story was compelling but the Marconi half got a bit boring with mechanics and infighting between scientists.

    Great story

    Excellent history as always from Larsen. He has a great talent for telling a story that can be quite dry if told incorrectly. Larsen makes one enjoy doing further research in to the story as he omits certain details like conspiracy stories about Crippen's innocence. If the reader needs to prove Crippen's innocence or guilt to themselves they have to do that on their own. Larsen lays out the facts without the unnecessary burden of opinions.
