Softcover. The author is widely recognised as the UK's leading authority on British serial murders. His work as a criminologist and profiler, and previously as a prison governor, brought him into close contact with several infamous serial killers. This book - the result of years of study - is his compelling investigation of this most terrifying of crimes. In his impeccably researched narrative, he recounts the histories of 31 of Britain's known serial killers, and explores the circumstances under which they were able to kill again and again. From Jack the Ripper's murderous rampage to Dr. Shipman's cool, clinical killings of potentially hundreds of elderly women, the author offers fascinating and compelling insights, based on his own unique experience in the field. Focusing on how serial killers target their victims, the book reveals how easy it can be for a killer to prey upon the most vulnerable in our society - and how we can help prevent such murders in the future. A definitive historical account of Britain's serial murders. Illus. + Index. 308pp. trade size softcover. Nr. F. with no creasing to covers.
