Publisher's Summary

The terrifying story of the most monstrous serial killers through history.

Serial killers are the most notorious and disturbing of all criminals, representing the very darkest side of humanity. Yet they endlessly fascinate and continue to capture the public's attention with their strange charisma and deadly deeds. From Jack the Ripper to Ted Bundy and the Moors Murderers Ian Brady and Myra Hindley, these killers transfix us with their ability to commit utterly savage acts of cruelty and depravity.

Only with modern police detection methods and psychological profiling have these figures that have existed throughout human history finally been identified in the deadliest category: serial killers. These methods, the killers' characters and their crimes are described here in fascinating and terrifyingly gripping detail. The whole history of serial killers is brought to life in 50 chapters, including:

  • Herman Webster Mudgett
  • Devil in the White City
  • John Christie
  • The 10 Rillington Place Murders
  • The Zodiac Killer
  • Ian Brady and Myra Hindley, the Moors Murderers
  • Ted Bundy
  • Fred and Rosemary West
  • Jeffrey Dahmer
  • Aileen Wuornos
  • Harold Shipman, Dr Death

everything you've read already but in one place

pacey narration but without much feeling or sensation despite the story. overall nothing new or revelatory but still very interesting and a good reminder of the darker side to humanity

ok but nothing new learned

my interest in true crime stems from psychological or social perspectives. this is ok but it just gives lots of facts, more like a general guide. it is read quite well, but I struggled to engage
