I have read a few books similar to this one, where the authors try to list and briefly summarize every serial killer. No book however, comes this close to listing them all. I often find myself using this book to verify information, and rarely do I come across an individual not listed in it. The author put lots of research into this book, and even went so far as to list unsolved serial cases, which again was the most thorough listing I have ever seen. I highly recommend this book to those who want to learn more names in the world of serial killers. I also recommend this book to those researching in the area to use as a guidebook to look back upon when needed.
This book was very informative on different serial killers, some of there life and there sick habbits. Great book for the real reader of the serial killer.
