  • A To Z Encyclopedia Of Serial Killers


Serial killers have never exerted a firmer grip on the nation's imagination. A steady stream of horrific crimes--and the books and movie they inspire--have made serial murder a topic of both tabloid attention and serious study.

Now author and professor Harold Schecter, a leading academic authority on serial killer, and co-author David Everitt have compiled the ultimate reference on this fascinating subject. With hundreds of entries spanning the entire spectrum of serial murder, this vivid, comprehensive resource examines these shocking crimes--and their infamous practitioners--from every angle. Discover, for example, how serial murder is linked to such things as: alligators, groupies, plumbing, and X-Rays.

From well-known to little-known details, the entries cover every dark chapter of serial murder, and reveal how this gruesome phenomenon is woven into our everyday lives. For expert guidance through a realm that is as bizarre as it is compelling, look no further than the A to Z Encyclopedia of Serial Killer.
