Although the book was good it seemed to drag on a bit especially toward the end. H H Holmes was also discussed in The Devil In The White City which I have read so It spoiled some of the details. It was very suprising the sucess the men had in finding the rements of the bodies for the time.The power Holmes had over people was unbelievable.I don't believe he should have been given the power to decide his wish into eternity. They shoul d have sold his body to science and given the money to mother of those poor children.

While this book provides great historical information, it seemed to read more slowly than some of his other works.
