Book Beginnings - The Devil in the White City

How easy it was to disappear: A thousand trains a day entered or left Chicago. Many of these trains brought single young women who had never seen a city but now hoped to make one of the biggest and toughest their home. 
I chose to include the beginning from the first chapter because I thought it was more interesting than the first lines of the prologue. I'm thinking someone, some girl is going to disappear and be murdered...maybe a lot of young women will disappear, and it will most likely happen at or revolve around a fair. How do I know that? The subtitle is Murder, Magic and Madness at the Fair that Changed America. Other than that piece of information, I have no idea what this book is about. I'm assuming it's a great piece of historical, crime fiction and I hope it's as sinister as the title implies. Also, it's the last book I need to read, in order to complete the Color-coded Reading Challenge--I''m really happy for that.
