Chicago, July 1893 during the World’s Fair this story of a serial killer was full of suspense, history and a little romance. This young lady was a force to be reckoned with. She had a way of getting people to do things against their better judgement that was certainly what needed to be done as she worked on solving the missing women case. I found it interesting and wanting to read more Historical Stories of American Crime.
I was gifted a copy through Barbour Publishing and NetGalley, no review was required. My review is voluntary.
About the book:
Mysterious Disappearances Taint the Chicago World’s Fair
Step into True Colors — a new series of Historical Stories of Romance and American Crime
While attending the Chicago World’s Fair in 1893, Winnifred Wylde believes she witnessed a woman being kidnapped. She tries to convince her father, an inspector with the Chicago police, to look into reports of mysterious disappearances around the White City. Inspector Wylde tries to dismiss her claims as exaggeration of an overactive imagination, but he eventually concedes to letting her go undercover as secretary to the man in question—if she takes her pistol for protection and Jude Thorpe, a policeman, for bodyguard.
Will she be able to expose H. H. Holmes’s illicit activity, or will Winnifred become his next victim?
