PAGING THROUGH HISTORY

Death in the Air:  The True Story of a Serial Killer, the Great London Smog, andthe Strangling of a City by Kate Winkler Dawson

A real-life thriller in the vein of The Devil in the White City, this is a gripping, historical narrative of a serial killer, an environmental disaster, and an iconic city struggling to regain its footing.

  1. "Choking the air for five days in 1952, the Great London Smog killed more than 12,000 people and created chaos throughout the city; but that was far from the only danger; at the same moment a serial killer was lurking in the shadows and preying on innocent women. What drove this man to commit such violent acts? How did the police manage to find him through the thick blanket of smog that covered the city? What measures did women take to cope with the threat? Much like H.H. Holmes and the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition, I am drawn to not only the great events of history but the many fascinating stories contained within." -- Kevin
