Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

They were born into this world as innocent children. They ended up as merciless killing machines. How to Make a Serial Killer leads the reader on an insightful, scary, and often disturbing investigation into what made these infamous murderers go bad. Is there really a demon seed? Do genes play a role? Was it their family background? How did peer group pressure influence them? Can it all be traced back to a shattering experience early in life? How to Make a Serial Killer follows the lives of these lost souls from early childhood to dark destiny and provides a fascinating look into the potential for disaster created by a violent and abusive upbringing. No matter what their crime they are still human, and this book explores the twisted workings of their destructive minds. How to Make a Serial Killer even explains how a sophisticated system of psychological profiling can potentially identify developing serial killers before they have begun to kill.

Synopsis:

An investigation into the sources of criminal behavior in such figures as Jeffrey Dahmer, John Wayne Gacy, and the Washington, D.C., snipers explores their violent and abusive upbringing, in an account that also explains how psychological profiling has the potential for identifying serial killers before they become criminals. Original.
