Serial Killers Book Dec 29, 2007
This site dosen't have a picture of the book so first let me say that it's a large hard-cover book with half the face of Jeffrey Dahmer and the words 'Serial Killers- The Stories of History's Most Evil Murderers' on the front.
As far as the content.. it dosen't disapoint. This book lists almost every single serial killer that are more well known as well as some you most likely have never heard of...Prominent killers from Australia, England, South Africa, Russia and New Zealand as well as almost all the American ones.
It's a very well put together book that gives it an edge on many other serial killer books because of all the pictures which are close ups and shots you most likely have not scene. Most other serial killer books usually just have the stories and a couple pictures but this has close up pictures of them all in black and white.
It pretty much covers it all.. why they do it, who they are and what they gain from it.. I could only think of one serial killer that was missing but he's not that well known amongst the general population though I consider him to be one of the worst but that's the only one not in here.
Overall, it's a very well put together book with the facts and profiles as well as full stories about the killers and victims. I pretty much know many of these cases by heart and did notice some small inconsistencies that were off that were somewhat annoying but for the most part it's pretty factual. Other than that I consider this worth the money and it's a unique addition to the true crime genre.
