Mostly straight historical account of America's first and most prolific serial killer; Herman W. Mudgett, aka Howard Henry Holmes (among numerous other aliases). Like Eckert's other works, dialogue and thought are invented to fit the known facts. In a twist that only a made-for-TV movie could love, Holmes was convicted of a single murder; one that he may well have been innocent of. ( )

I used this fictional account of the life of H.H. Holmes to help write my 10th grade history fair project. Who knew crime could read so profoundly interesting? ( )
