Icon book review: The Devil in the White City

This is a thickly paced book, at the speed of steam

Review by Robert McCool
Welcome to the White City - Chicago in 1890-1893.

It's been a while since I've written a review, as my wife had an emergency back surgery and an extended stay in the hospital that has kept me busy doing other things than writing.

But even as immediate as my time has been recently this book has been on my mind quite a bit. Once again, it comes recommended by a member of the Ada book club, and is justified as a good read.

Winning caption: “Still 2 players short to field the team”

She wins a 2-item, 16-inch 3 Brothers Family Pizza. Watch the Icon for the next pizza contest.
