Serial Killers and Mass Murderers takes you into the minds of the criminals who committed the world's most notorious and horrifying crimes. Each of the sadistic murderers profiled here was once known simply as someone's neighbor, co-worker or child. What turned them into killers? In one chilling chapter after another, this book profiles a terrifying succession of homicidal maniacs and asks the question, "What makes them tick?"

"The refrigerator contained meat, including a human heart, in plastic bags. There were three human heads in the freezer. Two more skulls were found in a pot on the stove. Another pot contained male genital organs and severed heads, and there were the remains of three male torsos in the trash."

Synopsis:

Even the world's most depraved murderers were once only known as somebody's neighbor or someone's son. What turned these people into killers? And why is everyone so fascinated with them? In one chilling chapter after another, this book profiles a terrifying succession of homocidal maniacs. It takes readers inside the minds of the people who committed the world's most notorious and horrendous crimes. Are they inhuman beasts beyond compassion, or human beings just like us who simply crossed a line and could not find a way back? Each story stands alone as a frightening tale. Drawn together in this one volume, Serial Killers and Mass Murderers present a fascinating investigation of the dark side.
