The true tale of the 1893 World’s Fair in Chicago and the cunning serial killer who used the magic and majesty of the fair to lure his victims to their death. A dazzling account and cautionary tale set during the years before WWII. The enthralling and emotional story of the sinking of the Lusitania, whose intimate details and true meaning have long been obscured by history. A true story weaving two men’s lives together with love, murder, invention, and the end of the world’s “great hush.” The true story of the deadliest hurricane in history. This devastating book illuminates America’s gun culture – and tells the story of how a disturbed teenager was able to buy a weapon advertised as “the gun that made the eighties roar.”
