Definition of a Serial Killer: A series of two or more murders, committed as separate events usually, but not a/ways, by one offender acting alone. The crimes may occur over a time ranging from hours to years. Quite often the motive is psychological, and the offender's behavior and the physical evidence observed at the scene will reflect sadistic and sexual overtones.

This is an interesting read if you have ever pondered who/what a serial killer is. It looks at what is known about serial killers, the myths and how those myths inhibit investigations, theories about the perpetrators and a case review of a couple.

What is most disturbing about this book is how hard it would be to recognise a serial killer and how nasty is could be if you were ever to be the focus of attention of a serial killer.

Not recommended for anyone who gets anxiety over such things.

Heavy duty--look into the world and mind of the serial killer. A text like book.
