Publisher Description

What is it that turns someone into a cold-blooded killer? It is more than evil, more than bad genes, more than horrible childhoods. In this volume the stories reveal the complexity of abnormal human behaviour. In some cases the reason appears to be psychosis or demonic voices, for others, overpowering compulsions with deep psychological roots and for some killing is better than sex and the only way they can achieve total gratification. Ted Bundy, Jack the Ripper, Jeffrey Dahmer, Richard Chase, Andrei Chikatilo and many more.

LJR! ,

Could have been written by a high school student.

Whilst this book contains plenty of interesting case studies on a number of different types of killers, it is incredibly badly written for something that has been published. It was clearly not even proof read, or most, if not all of the simple errors would have been fixed. Then again, for 99 cents you can't really complain.

Badly edited

The book is rife with spelling and date errors- some murders were operating over a 500 year period!

born to be killers

Interesting info which has already been much more adequately drawn together in numerous other books on killers. Good for basic info, but lacking in depth and certainly in writing style.
