SHOCKING TRUE STORIES OF THE WORLD'S MOST BARBARIC CRIMINALS
Revealing portraits of the most notorious killers of our time:
The Zodiac Killer
Dr. Harold Shipman
Son of Sam
The Columbine Killers
The Night Stalker
The Yorkshire Ripper
The Boston Strangler
Serial Killers & Mass Murderers takes you into the minds of the criminals who committed the world's most notorious and horrifying crimes. Each of the sadistic murderers profiled here was once known simply as someone's neighbor, co-worker or child. What turned them into killers? In one chilling chapter after another, this book profiles a terrifying succession of homicidal maniacs and asks the question, "What makes them tick?"
"The refrigerator contained meat, including a human heart, in plastic bags. There were three human heads in the freezer. Two more skulls were found in a pot on the stove. Another pot contained male genital organs and severed heads, and there were the remains of three male torsos in the trash."
This book was informative and interesting. It was also a page turner. I really enjoyed reading it!
A page turner
Great read. Found myself not being able to put it down. It was very informative but I found some stories poorly written. I recommend it to everyone
Serial killers and mass murderers by Cawthorne
This book largely sucked. If you've ever read a book by Christopher Berry-Dee on the subject of serial killers, you'll notice the difference immediately.
Berry-Dee goes into great detail of the lives of killers before they became killers to try and shed light on the question of "Why?" they commit such heinous crimes. Berry-Dee also delves deeply into the lives of the victims - their personalities, their hopes, dreams, aspirations, etc., so that the reader has a really good feel for both killer and victim. With that, the reader feels the appropriate sympathy for the victims and their friends and families because they've been portrayed so well as living beings. And the reader feels disgust and ~ I'm not going to lie ~ some real rage against these vicious killers. To that end, however, comes an education on what NOT to do to prevent becoming a victim yourself. You also pick up on things to watch for when going about your daily life. Berry-Dee's books are educational in that sense and after reading them, you feel better prepared to protect your self. That is probably a side benefit of the book and it may have very likely been unintentional on the part of the author, but a smart reader will take the details Berry-Dee offers to heart and put them to use.
On the other hand, with "Serial Killers and Mass Murderers" by Cawthorne, he tends more to just rattle off names and dates of murder victims without much more about them. It reads more like a laundry list of killers and their victims ... "Then so-and so was murdered on such-and-such date. Following that, the killer raped and murdered this person, that person, and the other person." boom. End of story.
Would NOT recommend this book! So NOT worth the ten bucks.
