This book had a ton of potential. Unfortunately it didn't live up to it in my opinion.

The most chilling kind of horror story (the real kind). This book gives you all the real crime stories, along with insight in to the minds of the killers and some sick humor by the killers. The author/main character starts the book off with some personal background, which I would have found boring and skipped through it, had he not been such a smart-a** and the book gets better, and darker, from there.

A good book not to be read for entertainment, but good for a wait between classes of ride on the bus.
