After rising from the ashes of the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, the city was rebuilt and hosted the Worlds Fair in 1893. H.H. Holmes, one of Americas first serial killers, was operating in the city at the time and used the Fair to lure his victims into his murder castle. The Fair also served as a backdrop for the murder of the citys very popular mayor. Each decade from that point on is represented with some of the most notorious murders in the citys violent history. Murder in Chicago takes us through the Prohibition era with a chapter on Al Capone and the St. Valentines Day Massacre. The 1930s are represented with Public Enemy Number One and the story of the countrys first celebrity criminal John Dillinger. The Lipstick Killer left a chilling message in lipstick at one of his murder scenes in the 1940s. Did the police get the right man? The murder of the Grimes Sisters is still unsolved almost 60 years since the teenagers disappeared after watching Elvis in Love Me Tender in 1956. A triple murder at Starved Rock State Park in 1960 is covered as well as a chapter on mass murderer Richard Speck who murdered eight student nurses in 1966. Ten years later the Elk Grove Murders shocked the city. Was a family member involved? The book ends with chapters on John Wayne Gacy (Killer Clown), Justice Denied (wrongful conviction), Free to Kill Again (a murderer set free to kill again) Cabrini-Green (The Shot That Brought Down Cabrini-Green) and the still unsolved Lane Bryant Murders.
