BOOK EXCERPT:

Serial Killers have been a mystery for years, they commit the most monstrous acts known to man, yet we still know very little about what makes them do what they do. They kill with no remorse and have destroyed families and individuals lives many times over. These killers are at times ordinary folks that one wouldn't even realize were a cold blooded murderer. From the Zodiac Killer to the Night Stalker, all have kept us in fear until caught. This book goes deep into the minds of some of the worst serial killers in history, but not only this there is facts, dates, methods of the crimes, victims accounts and even testimony from the killers themselves. Beware: This book is not for the faint of heart...

BOOK EXCERPT:

A superbly targeted resource for those learning about serial killings. Serial Killers and the Phenomenon of Serial Murder examines and analyses some of the best known (as well as lesser) cases from English criminal history, ancient and modern. It looks at the lifestyles, backgrounds and activities of those who become serial killers and identifies clear categories of individuals into which most serial killers fall. Led by Professor David Wilson the authors are all experts and teachers concerning the ever-intriguing subject of serial killing: why, when and how it happens and whether it can be predicted. Taking some of the leading cases from English law and abroad they demonstrate the patterns that emerge in the lives and backgrounds of those who kill a number of times over a period. The book is designed for those studying the topic at advanced level, whether as an academic discipline on one of the many courses now run by universities and colleges or as a private quest for understanding. It contains notes on key terms and explanations of topics such as co-activation, Munchausen syndrome, cooling-off period, psychopathy checklist, social construction, case linkage, family annihilation, activity space, rational choice theory, medicalisation and rendezvous discipline. As the first textbook of its kind it will be an invaluable resource for teachers and students of serious crime.
