Don’t waste your money

Many facts within the first couple of chapters were incorrect, the author should have done a bit more fact checking before he discussed someone the topics the book was released

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

A history of Serial Killers.

A history of serial killers from as far back as Jack the Ripper. Each chapter describes the crime, the arrest, the childhood and best of all remembers the victims and the people that they were.
