I was really swept away by the true story I'd never heard of before - how come Jack the Ripper is so well known? Henry Holmes defies belief - a conman and a serial killer- he built a hotel to murder people and dispose of their bodies....
I didn't give it 5 stars because I was slightly disappointed by the editing/proofing that would have made it a much better read. I accept that it wasn't fiction but I think Henry's personality should have shone through a bit more.
Definitely worth reading...

An amazing taleReviewed in the United Kingdom on 14 May 2017
Well WrittenReviewed in the United States on 6 September 2017
Very well written. The author clearly states that the book is a novel; however after reading Devil and the White City and biographical materials on H. H. Holmes, the only liberties the author seemed to take with the factual account were private conversations and personal scenes. He obviously did his homework.

The guy was nutsReviewed in the United States on 13 July 2019
The ingenious ways of killing and disposal of the remains. The long drawn out court case. Became boring and not worth reading.
Very Detailed Telling of a warped mindReviewed in the United States on 7 August 2018
Considerable research went into writing the book. It follows Holmes as he perptrates scam after scam, until he’s finally caught. You have to be disgusted by him by the time you are done.
Fascinating story but --Reviewed in the United States on 27 December 2017
Fascinating story but could have been paced better. Once he was arrested, the author gave every tiny detail of his questioning and so on. I got bored and quit.
