Overview

Take a deep dive into the rise and fall of some of the most notorious serial killers of the ‘80s, including Jeffrey Dahmer, Joseph James DeAngelo, Dennis Lynn Rader, and the Night Stalker.

Neon leg warmers, big hair, rock band T-shirts, and mix tapes — 1980s’ nostalgia at its finest. But just below that saccharine facade lurked a seedy underbelly of inconceivable human monsters like no decade before had ever seen. The Golden Age of the Serial Killer brought a sharp increase in violent crime, panic, and terror, which in turn sparked a chaotic race between serial murderers and law enforcement officers tasked with both stopping the killings and delivering justice to victims and their loved ones. The Big Book of 1980s Serial Killers is for the true crime fanatic who wants to investigate these cases and discover the ins and outs of how crimes like these are solved.

Drawing from meticulous research, contemporary journalistic accounts, and trial transcripts, this book traces the various ways in which law enforcement cracked some of the most challenging serial killer cases in history. Serial killers included:
  • Doug Clark and Carol Bundy (Sunset Strip Killers)
  • Jeffrey Dahmer
  • Joseph James DeAngelo (The Golden State Killer)
  • Larry Eyler (The Interstate Killer)
  • Lonnie David Franklin, Jr. (The Grim Sleeper)
  • Samuel Little
  • Gary Leon Ridgway (The Green River Killer)
  • Dennis Rader (The BTK Killer)
  • Richard Ramirez (The Night Stalker)
  • Tommy Lynn Sells
  • Arthur Shawcross (The Genesee River Killer)
  • Aileen Wournos

Are you ready to hunt the worst serial killers of the 1980s?
