WARNING: this book is NOT for the faint of heart! It depicts realistic violence with vile and malicious activities, and delve into the darkness of the human heart and mind.
When a Serial Killer is active in a community it is extremely scary for everyone. This book focuses on Serial Killers who have been captured and some of the most notorious and ruthless killers in history.
Serial killers stay close to home and their victims are random. Dennis Rader found all his victims in Kansas not far from the Wichita home he shared with his wife and two kids. Rader, the president of his local church, knocked on his victim's doors and they simply let him in. John Wayne Gacy, met many of his 33 victims, all young men and boys, at charity events where he appeared dressed a clown. After luring them to his house and murdering them he stuffed them under his Cook County, Illinois home. Gary Leon Ridgway, the Green River Killer, was convicted of strangling 49 random women he met in Washington. He confessed to killing 71 but authorities believe the number of victims could be over 90. Jeffrey Dahmer of Milwaukee admitted to killing and cannibalizing 17 young men and boys before he was arrested.
Case Closed is a compilation of criminal file dossiers on several of those Serial Killers that were captured, including:
John Wayne Gacy - The Killer Clown
Donald Henry Gaskins
Gary Ridgway - The Green River Killer
Dennis Rader - The BTK Killer
David Berkowitz - The Son of Sam
Ottis Toole and Henry Lee Lucas - The Homosexual Crime Team
And Many More.
"Here's a chilling and engrossing collection of killers, presented with the no nonsense seriousness of Jack Webb in DRAGNET. Perfect for a True Grue Crime fix!"
~ David F. Bischoff (TV Writer and NY Bestselling Author of 82 books including Phantom of the Opera and Star Wars)
FROM THE FILE OF JEFFREY DAHMER:
"In the wee hours of May 27th, 1991, Konerak Sinthasomphone, fourteen, was discovered wandering naked on the street, heavily drugged and bleeding from his rectum. Two young women from the neighborhood found the confused young boy and called 911. Dahmer chased after the boy to take him back to his apartment, but the women stopped him. When the police arrived, Dahmer told them that Sinthasomphone was his nineteen-year-old boyfriend, and they'd had an argument while drinking. The two women were not pleased and protested, but the two police officer turned the boy over to Dahmer. The police later reported a strange smell inside Dahmer's apartment, but did not investigate it. The smell was the body of Tony Hughes, Dahmer's previous victim, decomposing in the bedroom. The two policemen did not try to verify the boy's age and also failed to run the background check that would have revealed Dahmer as a convicted child molester, registered sex offender, and still on probation. Later that night, Dahmer killed and dismembered the young lad, keeping his skull as a souvenir. Author Note: Officers Joseph P. Gabrish and John A. Balcerzak were fired after this incident but appealed and were re-instated."

Great information regarding various serial killers within the US & abroad. These are short case summaries. The book is only 97 pages. An OK value for the money. Worth the read if this topic is of interest to you.
Very informative. So glad RJ has put all his books on Nook :)
It was a good book.
Like a previous reviewer said this all basically lifted from wikipedia but done so very poorly plus it gives info that has alrrady been widely reported and is common knowledge ir was written about already in much better books
this book is literally nothing more than the wikipedia pages on serial killers, rewritten, very poorly in my opinion, and with less information. Save your money and just read the wikipedia pages for free.
