Book H. H. Holmes Description/Summary:

America's first and most notorious serial killer and his diabolical killing spree during the 1893 World's Fair in Chicago, now updated with a new afterword discussing Holmes' exhumation on American Ripper. H. H. Holmes: The True History of the White City Devil is the first truly comprehensive book examining the life and career of a murderer who has become one of America’s great supervillains. It reveals not only the true story but how the legend evolved, taking advantage of hundreds of primary sources that have never been examined before, including legal documents, letters, articles, and records that have been buried in archives for more than a century. Though Holmes has become just as famous now as he was in 1895, a deep analysis of contemporary materials makes very clear how much of the story as we know came from reporters who were nowhere near the action, a dangerously unqualified new police chief, and, not least, lies invented by Holmes himself. Selzer has unearthed tons of stunning new data about Holmes, weaving together turn-of-the-century America, the killer’s background, and the wild cast of characters who circulated in and about the famous “castle” building. This book will be the first truly accurate account of what really happened in Holmes’s castle of horror, and now includes an afterword detailing the author's participation in Holmes' exhumation on the TV series, American Ripper. Exhaustively researched and painstakingly brought to life, H. H. Holmes will be an invaluable companion to the upcoming Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio movie about Holmes’s murder spree based on Erik Larson’s The Devil in the White City.

Book Mysterious Chicago Description/Summary:

From Chicago historian Adam Selzer, expert on all of the Windy City’s quirks and oddities, comes a compelling heavily researched anthology of the stories behind its most fascinating unsolved mysteries. To create this unique volume, Selzer has collected forty unsolved mysteries from the 1800s to modern day. He has poured through all newspaper, magazine, and book references to them, and consulted expert historians. Topics covered include who really started the great Chicago fire, who was the first “automobile murderer,” and even if there was actually a vampire slaying at Rose Hill cemetery. The result is both a colorful read to get lost in, a window to a world of curiosity and wonder, as well as a volume that separates fact from fiction—true crime from urban legend. Complementing the gripping stories Selzer presents are original images of the crime and its suspects as developed by its original investigators. Readers will marvel at how each character and crime were presented, and happily journey with Selzer as he presents all facts and theories presented at the time of the “crime” and uses modern hindsight to assemble the pieces.

Book Holmes' Own Story Description/Summary:

Eighty-seven (87) restored and sourced, rare historical illustrations and photographs. A fascinating look into the mind of one of America's first serial killers. Born as Herman Webster Mudgett, H. H. Holmes was a horrific killer featured in Erik Larson's popular book, The Devil in the White City. Holmes built a three story 'Murder Castle' in Chicago in the late 1800s with death on his mind. A doctor by trade, Holmes lured unsuspecting victims into secret rooms, vaults and gas chambers and made use of a dissection table in his basement. He preyed on travelers that came to Chicago for the World Columbian Exposition in 1893 by advertising rooms for rent and offering employment opportunities. No doubt about it, Holmes earned despicable nicknames such as Arch Fiend, Butcher, Modern Bluebeard, Swindler, and Moral Degenerate. Holmes was a monster in disguise as a doctor, a perfect ruse to lure his victims. After all, who would not trust a doctor? Learn what Holmes personality and thought process was like, straight from the mind of a killer. This three-part book includes Holmes' memoir and his confession of twenty-seven murders. It also has details about his death, unusual burial, and an odd story Holmes told about his reincarnation. Notes, illustration credits, and bibliography are included.

Book The Devil In The White City Description/Summary:

'An irresistible page-turner that reads like the most compelling, sleep defying fiction' TIME OUT One was an architect. The other a serial killer. This is the incredible story of these two men and their realization of the Chicago World's Fair of 1893, and its amazing 'White City'; one of the wonders of the world. The architect was Daniel H. Burnham, the driving force behind the White City, the massive, visionary landscape of white buildings set in a wonderland of canals and gardens. The killer was H. H. Holmes, a handsome doctor with striking blue eyes. He used the attraction of the great fair - and his own devilish charms - to lure scores of young women to their deaths. While Burnham overcame politics, infighting, personality clashes and Chicago's infamous weather to transform the swamps of Jackson Park into the greatest show on Earth, Holmes built his own edifice just west of the fairground. He called it the World's Fair Hotel. In reality it was a torture palace, a gas chamber, a crematorium. These two disparate but driven men are brought to life in this mesmerizing, murderous tale of the legendary Fair that transformed America and set it on course for the twentieth century . . .

Book Holmes Description/Summary:

H.H. Holmes did what few serial killers ever do. He published a series of autobiographical documents that revealed his sociopathic tendencies--and lied about his crimes. The infamous killer of the Chicago World's Fair published a memoir and a confession, both of which conceal more than they reveal of the truth. Then he gave a speech at his hanging that recanted everything. This series of documents, edited and explained by Matt Lake, author of Weird Pennsylvania, show the dark but charming side of a man who lured somewhere between 24 and 200 men, women, and children to their deaths.

Popularized in the bestselling book The Devil in the White City, H. H. Holmes has gone down in history as America’s first—and possibly most prolific—serial killer.

Join Chicago paranormal authority Adam Selzer as he separates the truth behind the myth. Did H. H. Holmes really kill 200 people? How did he do it? And why?

Book Depraved Description/Summary:

The heinous bloodlust of Dr. H.H. Holmes is notorious -- but only Harold Schechter's Depraved tells the complete story of the killer whose evil acts of torture and murder flourished within miles of the Chicago World's Fair. "Destined to be a true crime classic" (Flint Journal, MI), this authoritative account chronicles the methods and madness of a monster who slipped easily into a bright, affluent Midwestern suburb, where no one suspected the dapper, charming Holmes -- who alternately posed as doctor, druggist, and inventor to snare his prey -- was the architect of a labyrinthine "Castle of Horrors." Holmes admitted to twenty-seven murders by the time his madhouse of trapdoors, asphyxiation devices, body chutes, and acid vats was exposed. The seminal profile of a homegrown madman in the era of Jack the Ripper, Depraved is also a mesmerizing tale of true detection long before the age of technological wizardry.

Holmes: A Life From Beginning to End ✓ Charles Manson: A Life From Beginning to End ✓ Jack the Ripper: A Life From Beginning to End Purchase Your Copy Today! Ted Bundy Ted Bundy is one of America's most notorious serial killers. Between the mid and late 1970s, Bundy admitted to the murders of more than thirty young women and girls across the American states of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Utah, and Colorado. Reports of Bundy's murders reached the police and trickled down through the press to ordinary citizens; panic ensued. Yet while the killings were taking place, no-one could see that the string of brutal murders happening all over the northwest of America was perpetrated by the same man. Ted Bundy's story does not end with his capture, nor does it end with his trial and conviction. Even moments before he was executed by electric chair, the most notorious serial killer in U.S. history revealed more crimes and more victims. We will never know the true number of Bundy's victims. Edmund Kemper To the average American, there was nothing out of the ordinary about Edmund Kemper before 1973. Standing at six-foot-nine, the young man was a giant, but he was gentle, soft spoken, and shy. He lived with his mother into his mid-twenties and frequented local bars, cozying up to police officers--a job he had once hoped to hold himself but couldn't since he was too tall. This was one reality of Kemper's life--the reality he wanted those around him to see. There was another side to the man though, a much darker side. Kemper's actions in his life shocked America, who dubbed him the Co-Ed Killer for his urge to murder and violate co-ed girls in Northern California. H. H. Holmes H. H. Holmes' story has become one of legend. Holmes committed his crimes at a time in history where the idea of murdering on a mass scale was just being introduced to the world through the actions of Jack the Ripper.

Throughout his life he would commit devastating murders for money, properly earning him the title of America's first serial killer. Charles Manson A small man with wild, matted hair, wide eyes, and a swastika tattooed on his forehead, Charles Manson is instantly recognizable as the deranged cult leader who was responsible for the deaths of nine people in the late 1960s. Manson was a career criminal who got his education in the U.S. prison system and learned at an early age that only those who have power over others will survive. Jack the Ripper In 1888, between August and November, the women of London's East End were terrorized by a deranged serial killer. A man was stalking the streets at night, seizing random women who worked those streets and killing them. This man mutilated his victim's bodies after death, removing body parts, taking organs. No one has ever been able to identify Jack the Ripper.

Book Dr. H. H. Holmes & the Whitechapel Ripper Description/Summary:

In 1888 a serial killer menaced the streets of the Whitechapel District in London. In America a serial killer was plotting the murder of hundreds on innocents amidst the backdrop of the 1893 World's Fair. The evidence presented indicates these two cases divided by an ocean have much more in common than ever before considered. Is it possible that the perpetrator of the London murders who was to become known as Jack the Ripper, and America's first serial killer, Dr. H. H. Holmes, were one in the same? Through case file evidence provided by the Metropolitan Police, Scotland Yard, and The British Archives, along with case file evidence evaluated by the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI), and the American Nation Archives, new revelations reflect there may have been a conspiracy to hide the identity of Jack the Ripper, further evidence shows he might have continued his murderous ways on the streets of Chicago after fleeing London.

Book Self Portrait of a Serial Killer Description/Summary:

H.H. Holmes was a doctor, real estate speculator, pharmacist, bigamist, swindler, and America's first media superstar serial killer. As he awaited trial, he put out a series of autobiographical documents, press releases, and interviews that revealed his sociopathic tendencies--and lied about his crimes. The infamous killer of the Chicago World's Fair published a memoir and a confession, both of which conceal more than they reveal of the truth. Then he gave a speech at his hanging that recanted everything. This series of documents is edited into a seamless narrative with newspaper clippings that shows the dark but charming side of a man who had nine confirmed kills and who claimed to have killed 27. This edition ends with a description by Matt Lake, author of Weird Pennsylvania, of the strange secret burial of the hanged Holmes, and recent exhumation that calls into question everything we thought we knew about Holmes's last days.

Book Words of a Monster Description/Summary:

 Decades before the term “serial killer” was coined, H.H. Holmes murdered dozens of people in his now-infamous Chicago “Murder Castle.” In his autobiography, Holmes struggled to define himself in the language of the late nineteenth century. As the “first”—or, as he labeled himself, “The Greatest Criminal of the Age”—he had no one to compare himself to, and no ready-made biographical structure to follow. Holmes was thus nearly able to invent himself from scratch. This book minutely inspects how Holmes represented himself in his writings and confessions. Although the legitimacy of Holmes’ accounts have been called into question, his biography mirrors the narrative structure of the true crime genre that emerged decades after his death.
