Paperback. The most sinister and depraved breed of criminal, they slaughter for no reason other than to satisfy a twisted irrational hunger. They wait in shadowed doorways or the apartment next door. They travel dark, lonely highways and walk the streets of our teeming cities - driven by the most terrible obsession of all: an insatiable lust for blood - and death. Robert Diaz: A male nurse, he was sentenced to die for his role in a dozen horrendous Southern California hospital murders - and is suspected of having committed at least 50 more. Benjamin Franklin Miller: A Connecticut postal worker and self-ordained street preacher, he took fiendish glee in strangling his victims to death with their own brassieres. "Jack the Stripper": This London butcher outdid his 19th century namesake - slaughtering 8 women between 1959 and 1965 in kinky nightmarish ways. Anna Marie Hahn: A Cincinnati "angel of mercy", she poisoned older men for their money - and laughed her way to the electric chair. Waldo Grant: His neighbours called him a "quiet loner". But behind closed doors, he used hammers and saws in the grisly murders of 4 New York City men. Illus. + Bibliog. and Index. 338pp. p/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. V. lightly browned pp. o/w Nr. F. with no creasing to covers.
