Publisher Comments:

They stared into the faces of pure evil . . . and survived!

Ted Bundy . . . Jeffrey Dahmer . . .

David "Son of Sam" Berkowitz . . . Dennis Rader, the BTK Killer . . .

These are some of the names that strike terror into even the bravest of hearts. Human monsters, they preyed upon the unsuspecting, freely feeding their terrible hungers. Their crimes were unspeakable, as they maimed, tortured, killed, and killed again, leaving so many dead in their bloody wake. But somehow, astonishingly, seven would-be victims fell into the clutches of the century's worst serial killers—and escaped death through courage, divine providence, or just plain luck.

This is the remarkable true story of those who lived.

About the Author

For his book The Historical Atlas of American Crime (Facts on File), Mr. Rosen won the Library Journal "Best Reference Source 2005" award. The award cited it as a "pioneering resource" in which Mr. Rosen "describes how geography, population shift, and new methods of commerce, transportation, and weapons technology have impacted crime" from 1592 to the present.

A former New York Times columnist, Mr. Rosen received the personal assistance of President Jimmy Carter for his true crime book Did They Really Do It? (Avalon, 2005). He is the author of many works of true crime, including the classic Lobster Boy. In that case it was Mr. Rosen's detective work that led to the conviction of the killer.

Mr. Rosen's 2004 memoir/popular history, Cremation in America (Prometheus), also garnered rave reviews.
