Nice variety of cases, including many not well-known. A bibliography to enable further reading would have been nice, but all on all a decent book.

THis book is so good. It goes into such detail. There are a couple of spelling mistakes......and mixed words....but you know what they are. It covers so much. It goes back far. Like 1800s to 2007. All the cases covered are either long or short. (example:Cleaveland Torso killings aka MAD BUTCHER OF KINGSBURRYRUN is over 20 pages long. Where as some others are 3 to 5 pages long. And there are an even amount of long and short cases. I highly reccomend this book to anyone.
