THE LOST CHILDHOODS, HORRIFIC CRIMES AND DEMENTED MINDS OF THOSE WHO KILL WITHOUT REMORSE.

They were born into this world as innocent children. They ended up as merciless killing machines. How to Make a Serial Killer leads you on an insightful, scary, and ultimately disturbing investigation into what made these infamous murderers go bad. Following the biographies and killing sprees of Jeffrey Dahmer, John Wayne Gacy, Washington D.C. snipers John Muhammad and Lee Molvo and many others, this book asks:

•Is there really a “demon seed”?
•Do genes play a role?
•Was it the killer’s family background?
•How did peer group pressure influence their murderous instincts?
•Can it all be traced back to a shattering experience early in life?

How to Make a Serial Killer follows the lives of these lost souls from early childhood to dark destiny. It provides a fascinating look into the potential for disaster created by a violent and abusive upbringing. No matter what their crime, these killers are still human, and this book explores the twisted workings of their destructive minds.
