Jeremy A lot of great books here. Most true crime lists have the usual Ann Rule books and that is it. You have some good ones. I also recommend "The Ultimate Evil" by Terry Maury (controversial in his findings on Son of Sam acting with others, satanism...a lot of strange conspiracy...just a strange book)and "The Hillside Strangers" by Darcy O'Brien. Glad to see you included Chikatilo here. Oh, I would also recommmend the "True Crime" anthology by Harold Schechter as well. If you have any more recommendations, keep them coming!

Sylvia Perrini These are all books by men as far as I can see, except for Ann Rule. How about books about women serial killers by Sylvia Perrini?

Joanne Annabannabobanna "The Hillside Stranglers" I believe is the title you mean. One of the better written books, I agree. However, I have still not found the same calibre of writing as that by Joe McGinnis. This author has written other true-crime books, all of which are excellent, but none are better than his first: "Fatal Vision" - which I found impossible to put down.

Joanne Annabannabobanna Sylvia Perrini - thnx for the name, I will definitely check her out.

Dannibal Pretty good list. I would suggest adding "Ted Bundy: Conversations with a Killer."
