Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Gibson (communication and journalism, U. of New Mexico, Albuquerque), an expert consultant on serial killers, argues for a more comprehensive definition of serial murder that includes profit-motivated murders along with serial homicides committed for other motives. He profiles a dozen cases of seven men and five women who killed for money, and presents data analyzing their traits and backgrounds." - Reference & Research Book News
