Devils in the White City – and Beyond by Richard C. Lindberg

Tuesday, January 26, 2021

True crime author Rich Lindberg presents a fascinating montage of Gaslight Era serial killers, scoundrels, and murderers. A veritable rogues gallery will pass in review, including H.H. Holmes (the original Devil in the White City), matrimonial swindlers, and murderers Johann Hoch and Belle Gunness plus (with time permitting) the enduring mystery of Lizzie Borden of Fall River (“Lizzie Borden Took and Axe…”) and Amy Archer Gilligan, the black widow who inspired the play and movie “Arsenic and Old Lace.”
