Erik Larson's THE DEVIL IN THE WHITE CITY and Harold Schechter's DEPRAVED probably isn't the other I was thinking of, nor THE DEVIL'S ROOD by five authors, but damned if I can think of or find a reference to the work now...Mudgett/Holmes...the only good thing one can say about him, I suppose, is that he provided Anthony Boucher with two of his other pseudonyms...
