Larson tells the stories of two men: Daniel H. Burnham, the architect responsible for the fairs construction, and H.H. Holmes, a serial killer masquerading as a charming doctor. Burnhams challenge was immense. In a short period of time, he was forced to overcome the death of his partner and numerous other obstacles to construct the famous White City around which the fair was built. His efforts to complete the project, and the fairs incredible success, are skillfully related along with entertaining appearances by such notables as Buffalo Bill Cody, Susan B. Anthony, and Thomas Edison. The activities of the sinister Dr.

Holmes, who is believed to be responsible for scores of murders around the time of the fair, are equally remarkable. He devised and erected the Worlds Fair Hotel, complete with crematorium and gas chamber, near the fairgrounds and used the event as well as his own charismatic personality to lure victims.
