More About the Author

Nigel Cawthorne is the author of over a hundred books, from serious political works such as The Iron Cage to lightweight comic romps such as Sex Lives of the Popes. Sex Lives of the Presidents got him on the Joan Rivers Show. He was hauled in front of a Senate Select Committee for The Bamboo Cage. And "Read this book." was the last line of the Washington Post's review of his book Takin' Back My Name: The Confessions of Ike Turner. So there is plenty for everyone to enjoy.

This is a book I bought for my husband.

If you're looking for a book that takes you deep into the crimes and minds of serial killers, on a more psychological level, then this book is not for you.

If you're curious about the 'stories' of serial killers, read this book!

I bought this book out of curiosity to bide time in between missions while deployed...I have to say I wanted to read the entire book in one sitting. Each story is well written with facts that aren't mentioned in the movies. This book also reveals serial killers I haven't heard of. It definitely goes into their minds & almost makes you feel as if you're there at the crime scene. If you're curious about the 'stories' of serial killers, read this book!

This book was very entertaining. The chapters were well written and to the point. You could tell the author was very educated on the subject he was writing about, but didn't run on and on about it. It just never ceases to amaze me, the depravity and madness that sometimes occurs in the minds of humans. Some of these murderers just seemed to become INHUMAN after you read of their crimes!
Very good, short and to the point book for true crime buffs!

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Mary Toth on February 5, 2010
Format: Paperback
This book is all about murderers who have several victims; it covers the tales of 17 cases. Nigel Cawthorne includes some of the less common, or less known killers in his writing. He devotes 10-20 pages per case, so if you are looking for information that is more comprehensive, this may not be the book for you. Overall, I felt that this was a good read that covered the basics of each case.

This book does give details of several well known and lesser known criminals but it does not provide any information that could not be gotten for free over the internet. Based on reviews and write-ups, I was hoping for a look into the minds of the killers, not a rehashing of the facts of the cases. I was disappointed.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Anna Garr on September 4, 2011
Format: Paperback
This book covers a wide range of serial killers and mass murderers and is worth a read for a basic introduction of the stories behind these horrific crimes. A note, however: the book is poorly written and poorly edited. It reads like a 7th grade essay. The stories do not always flow or provide the reader with adequate information. The format is not consistent. There are plenty of editing mistakes.

While I liked the background stories about these famous killers, the book itself is horribly written. It doesn't flow at all and seems like it was written by a high schooler.

Format: Paperback
This is a good little book, mostly for beginners, for people who don't read a lot of books about True Crime or Serial Killers. If like me you buy a lot of books on the subject then you won't learn anything that you don't already know, the author spend only 10 to 20 pages on each cases and it's basically informations you can find in other books or on the internet. However the book is very well written and features a solid list of cases, from Bundy to Zodiac, from Dahmer to the terrible events of Columbine. This is a decent read and a good way for beginners to start reading about Serial Killers and Unsolved murder cases.
