Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A gripping, if chilling, forensic examination of three savage serial killers who, among themselves, brutally murdered 28 innocent women

Michael Ross. Kenneth Bianchi. John Scripps. These are truly the servants of hell, three savage killers without a shred of soul between them. Michael Ross— "The Roadside Strangler," a terrifying sexual-sadistic predator, executed by lethal injection in 2005. Kenneth Bianchi—one of "The Hillside Stranglers," a rapist and serial killer, still serving a life sentence in Washington State. John Scripps—the British-born "Tourist from Hell," who slaughtered victims in Singapore and Thailand and watched them bleed before cutting their bodies up. The hangmans noose ended his spree. Christopher Berry-Dee interviewed both Ross and Bianchi in prison, witnessed Scrippss execution in Changi Jail, and has received the full cooperation of numerous law-enforcement agencies, including State Police in New York and Connecticut, Singapore Police, and HM Customs & Excise Special Investigations. Besides getting inside the characters of three serial killers, Emissaries of Satan also focuses on the irreparable damage caused by the three monsters, while acknowledging the dedicated men and women of law enforcement who work tirelessly to end the killing sprees of men like Ross, Bianchi, and Scripps and bring them to justice.

Synopsis:

The headline-grabbing crime. The grizzly facts in the coroner's report. The shocking revelations from the trial. Serial Killers: Up Close and Personal provides all these details plus one more: the murderer's first-person perspective — Revealing quotes from convicted killers add an even more frightening element to these chilling accounts. A world-renowned investigative criminologist, author Christopher Berry-Dee  goes deep into the bowels of the world's toughest prisons to face these monsters and hear their stories. Serial Killers: Up Close and Personal presents a disturbing and unflinching look into the homicidal mind.
