“He could not stop what he was doing. It was either sex or suicide.”
It’s often said that we will likely never understand how a person becomes a serial killer. However, I believe we can. In fact, we must, if we are ever going to find a way to stop the sexual abuse of children. But it’s not only the victims we want to save. We also want to stop our children from transforming themselves into killers.
—From the Introduction
Arthur Gary Bishop and Westley Allan Dodd had many things in common. They were both psychopathic pedophiles and prolific child molesters who eventually turned to killing their victims. Both were executed for their crimes at their own request. Most importantly, both desperately wanted to know one thing before they died:
How did I become a serial killer?
This book is an attempt to answer that question.

The “how to prevent steps”, what are they?
My heart is broken for the family of these children. I cried throughout the book and immediately afterwards. I wished the Dr. would have wrote more on clear red flags to look for in a child feeling rejected and starting to show signs of a problem. I wanted to know more on how to PREVENT my son from becoming this evil kind of monster. With that being said. Well written. Thank you for the awareness...and thank you for including that exert from Wes’s pamphlet, I will be sharing it with my 7 year old son, and his 2 year old brother when he’s of age.
