This was almost perfect for me because while I'd heard of most of these murderers I didn't know much about each one. There were a few exceptions, Ted Bundy and Charles Manson to name two.
I saw in another review that someone else mentioned it and I agree - two or three of these "murderers" (one may not have actually murdered) just didn't belong in the book. The Australian "dingo case" is one that I remember off the top of my head. I'd like to ask the author what made him add that and the other one or two in. While they are still horrible of course, they're so far different than any of the rest and really distract from the rest of the book.
This can be read very fast - all in one shot or story by story where it's easy to set down and pick back up.

 PuMbA's MoMmy*•.♥.•* I agree, after reading more on the dingo case I don't think it belonged in the book, especially now that the 2 people involved were found not guilty so many years later.
