It'd be nice if somebody compiled a list of serial killers from around the world for a change, instead of always making it look like people only kill people in the United States. To be fair however, if you follow author Robert Keller's extensive penmanship on the subject, he most certainly has focused on serial killers from all across the globe (http://www.amazon.com/Robert-Keller/e/B00C4XNJ04/ref=dp_byline_cont_ebooks_1). Further, the title of this particular book is certainly appropriate (in that it only focuses on American, or American born, serial killers), and as the author himself freely admits, his list of the twelve "worst" (in American history) is very much subjective.

And since author Robert Keller included the likes of such fiendish fellows (in the order they are examined in the book) as David Berkowitz, William Bonin, The Boston Strangler, Ted Bundy, Ed Corll, Jeffrey Dahmer, Albert Fish, John Wayne Gacy, Randy Kraft, Dennis Rader, Richard Ramirez, and Gary Ridgway, I'd say he did a better than average job of zeroing in on a more than worthy personal pick of some of the absolute worst ever.

Keller's The Deadly Dozen would be a relatively quick read for most, but it is written and researched quite well. Of course it contains a copious list of frightening and decidedly disturbing details about the personal background and the bevy of crimes of each killer, but the macabre material is handled quite tastefully in most cases, and even the faint of heart will still probably be enthralled while reading the book.

And yes, it's yet another one of those biopics that really is hard to put down. In fact, while reading The Deadly Dozen, I just had to keep turning those pages.

Although these serial killers and their stories are well known, and I'm an avid reader of true crime, I still want to give this book four solid stars. The writing was an easy, entertaining read and written so that the reader was reminded why these are the 12 worst! Oh my goodness! The cover's promise of mind-bending evil delivers.

This was a good book. It's got the usual fare, but I read about two serial killers that is never heard of before. Also there were a few new things I learned about Jeffrey Dahmer. Yep, I'd recommend this book and author.

I am an avid reader of true crime books and Rober Keller is now one of my favorite writers. A lot of the info I already knew but there was a lot I'd not read before. My worst nighmare was not Bundy or even Gacy but a cruel, sadist animal named Dean Corll (whom I'd not heard of until I read this book). The book is quite graphic and it is sickening to know how someone can do such unspeakable things to another human being. If you have the stomach for the macabre, then you will certainly enjoy this one. I have now moved on to another of Mr. Keller's books, Serial Killers Unsolved. I will review that at a later date.

Well laid out and a good read. This book is very informative and covers some great facts on the twelve dastardly killers it mentions. Keller is a great true crime author that I hope to read more from in the future. This is a great book for being free. I'm glad I found it. As a forensic enthusiast, I found this book to be immensely entertaining.

The book kept me interested to the end of each story as to how each killer was caught. I would have preferred more detail of the life of each killer. What made them do it? Did they ever have remorse. Especially the killing of the very young. I understand the writer had limited space to each story, but more in depth details of the murderers personal life would have been good. All in all the book was an interesting read.
