The devil in the white city : murder, magic, and madness at the fair that change
Larson, Erik
I recommend this book to both true-crime and architecture buffs. The chapters alternate between two parallel stories, that of the team of architects designing the 1893 Chicago World's Fair and a vicious serial killer.

In the heart of the sea : the tragedy of the whaleship Essex
Philbrick, Nathaniel
A must-read for fans of Moby-Dick. The then-famous story of the shipwreck of the Essex which partially inspired the events of Melville's novel. Nathaniel Philbrick is one of my favorite popular historians- he truly writes with the skill of a novelist.
