Highly recommended non-fiction serial killer read: "The Devil in the White City" by Erik Larson.
The Devil in the White City tells the story of the World's Columbian Exposition held in Chicago in 1893 to commemorate Christopher Columbus's discovery of America. The Devil in the White City intertwines the true tale of two men: Daniel Burnham and H. H. Holmes. Burnham, the chief architect and mastermind of the Exposition (also known as the White City) inadvertently created a playground for Holmes, one of America's first serial killers.
I just recently discovered who H.H. Holmes was, and he is one of the most interesting serial killers I have ever researched. The crazy thing is this all happened right here in my surrounding areas here in Chicago. And the things he did were unbelievable for his time period.
