The story of a series of VERY cold cases finally solved with DNA fingerprinting. There are a few unexpected elements in this story and the only reason it dragged for in places was the author's decision to tell the whole story once, from the police point of view, and then have the killer tell you all again from his own perspective -- without really adding anything to the story that way.

I had never heard of this series of crimes before (assaults and murders in Missouri, Illinois, Pennsylvania), so it was interesting learning about them, but the book is not so hot.

The title is a little misleading, as the book doesn't really focus on Krajcir's studies and knowledge of psychology and criminology. It is, however, one great read. The details of Krajcir's crimes are chillingly described. This is an awesome book for the die-hard true crime fans who enjoy blood and guts.

Case study of serial killer Timothy Krajcir who terrorized southern Illinois and Cape Girardeau, Missouri 30-35 years ago. Presentation is matter of fact without sensationalizing the murders. Well done. Recommended to fans of true life crime.
