A Good Book...For Beginners,
This review is from: The Killer Book of Serial Killers: Incredible Stories, Facts and Trivia from the World of Serial Killers (Paperback)
This is a good little book, well written and featuring a solid list of cases. However I agree with fellow reviewer John Nagle: this book is for beginners. If, like me, you are a True Crime buff and have read many books about True Crimes/Unsolved Murders/Serial Killers then you won't be too impressed by this book and you certainly won't learn anything new. Most of the important cases are featured in this book: Fish, Bundy, Gacy, DeSalvo, Lucas, Dahmer, Ramirez, Son of Sam, Ridgway, BTK and Chikatilo, plus some interesting cases that had happened in other Countries ( Kodaira in Japan, Sithole in South Africa to name a few ). This is not a bad book, it's just the basic information, informations you can find anywhere on the web or in other books. If you want a real encyclopedia about Serial Killers then buy "The Encyclopedia of Serial Killers" by Michael Newton, available here on Amazon for less than 15$.
