Paperback. Many serial killers are polite, intelligent, articulate and sensitive - yet they have murdered and, if released into society, they will kill again. The author has devoted much of his life to the study of the serial killer. He has spent countless hours interviewing murderers, their lovers and families, top investigators and the FBI. In this book he gives a startling new perspective to such well-known cases as 'The Hillside Stranger' - Ken Bianchi, 'gourmand' Jeffrey Dahmer and Ted Bundy. He also introduces new names previously unknown outside the areas where they committed their hideous crimes. The book examines this late 20th century plague from every angle: how communities react when a serial killer is found in their midst, the killers' obsession with Satan and the occult, the deadly influence of pornography, the public fascination with serial murder and the creation of celebrity status for the more notorious killers. Yet at the centre of all these aspects is the crucial analysis of the killer and how members of our own species can commit such monstrous acts of violence. A comprehensive study of a horrifying phenomenon. 297pp. p/back. From the library of true-crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Lightly browned pp. o/w Nr. F. with no creasing to covers.
