Why?by Margaret Cheney
Many unknown serial killers are prowling the homes, schools, and streets of this nation. Only a few have been caught. This book will take you on a terrifying journey inside the mind of one of the first known serial killers. In the early 70s, Edmund Kemper III stalked young women on the coastline of California. Against these scenic backdrops, he butchered his mother, her friend and six coeds. As this book explores the depth of Kemper's madness, it reveals the elements that all serial killers have in common, and why our culture is for them a kind of petri dish.

this book is VERY well written and extremely terrifying. It is the only book I've found exclusively on Kemper and it is a MUST read for any true crime fan. It is one of the best written crime book I've read. And it also goes into a look at the issue serial killers and violent crime in America, which was very interesting.
