Publisher's Summary

Dr. Helen Morrison has profiled more than 80 serial killers around the world. What she has learned about them will shatter every assumption you've ever had about the most notorious killers known to man.

Morrison, a leading expert on serial killers, has spent as many as 400 hours alone with depraved murderers. In My Life Among the Serial Killers, Dr. Morrison relates how she profiled Richard Otto Macek, who chewed on his victims' body parts, stalked Dr. Morrison, then believed she was his wife. She conducted the last interview with Ed Gein, the inspiration for Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho. John Wayne Gacy, the clown-obsessed killer of young men, sent her crazed Christmas cards, and gave her his paintings as presents. Dr. Morrison has received letters from killers, read their diaries and journals, evaluated crime scenes, testified at their trials, and studied photos of the gruesome carnage. She has interviewed the families of the victims, and the spouses and parents of the killers.

Through it all, Dr. Morrison's goal has been to discover the reasons why serial killers are compelled to murder, how they choose their victims, and what we can do to prevent their crimes in the future. Her provocative conclusions will stun you.

    "Credibility questionable"

    I found this author's talents for perhaps profiling credible, but I can't remember even one instance where her profiling led to an arrest, or a "gotcha" moment. Most of her conclusions were, in her words, "Here is what I believe happened..." which in my opinion is just her opinion; nothing more, nothing less. Of course I could be just prejudiced against someone who did not hesitate to malign law enforcement....

    "Great Book"
    Any additional comments?

    Contrary to other reviews, I did not think Helen Morrison's voice was boring, but eerily calm. The stories are intense and as expected, creepy. The only reason I am not giving a full 5 stars is that towards the end of the novel she talks about how her life/family has dealt with her career, that was the only boring part.

    Worth every penny. I couldn't put it down! Informative and insightful. If you are interested in why or how serial killers become killers then this one is for you.

    "Love it - I read it again and again"

    This inside pespective by Helen Morrison is captivating. Since I purchased it, about 3 years ago, I've listened to it at least 3 times and I've just re-downloaded it for my iPhone, I am ready for round no 4.

    "addicting and useful to society"

    i always feel like there is something strange about our need for morbid details of horrific crimes. however; the author is actually working toward a better future, and i was engrossed by all the details as well.

    "Interesting Story"

    Read by Helen Morrison, MD...she should stick with Medical Practice not reading audible books. The story was interesting but she read it without emotion...It was HER story and she had no personal emotion in her voice.
