Equal parts fascinating and horrifying, the stories of serial killers like Ted Bundy and Jeffrey Dahmer have taken on a new cultural prominence with the rise of the true-crime genre.

My thoughts
Would I recommend it : Yes , but only to the ones that love true crime just as much as I do.
Would I read more by author? It would depend on the topic .
If your a true crime buff like I am then you have to read this and add it to your collection, its has everything you could every want to know from the serial killers that you might know about to the ones that you never heard of.And there was quite a lot of them in this book I didn't know about at all, another thing I liked was how it broke it down by talking about the their past to their victims and what happened to them if they was caught, killed , or if they got away. With that said I want to thank Edelweiss for letting me read this and review it.
