You are looking for a book about Serial killers ?? Then you just found one of the best book available, my friends. I buy a lot of True Crime books and Encyclopedias, criminology is my passion and I enjoy reading books about unsolved cases, serial killers and real life mysteries. This book, THE MAMMOTH BOOK OF KILLERS AT LARGE, is by far one of the most impressive collection of cases I have ever seen. This book is chilling, always interesting and is a wonderful read.
In THE MAMMOTH BOOK OF KILLERS AT LARGE you'll find 80 cases of serial killers who remains unknown. We don't know who they are, but we know what they did. Simple, chilling, fascinating. The book is in 2 parts : America and the world. A various amount of pages are dedicated for each cases, between 1 page and 20 pages. It's logical that, for example, a legendary case like Jack the Ripper has a 20 pages coverage while a totally obscure case like, say, the Twin Cities' killer is covered only on one page, the amount of information available for a legendary case will always be higher than for a case covered mostly on a regional basis. All cases are well presented and well researched, the author did a wonderful job researching the most obscure cases, and I'm sure everybody will discover some new cases while reading this book.
Some of the cases you'll find in this book are legendary : Jack the Ripper. The Zodiac Killer, the Mad Butcher of Kingsbury Run, the Tylenol Killer, and the New Orleans Axeman. Some of them are known only by True crime and Criminology buffs : the Butcher of Mons, the Texarkana Phantom, Jack the Stripper, and the Monster of Florence. Others are known only by a minority of people; I doubt very seriously that a lot of people has heard about the Fort Lauderdale Lacerater, Denver's Down-and-Out Destroyer, or the Southern Pacific Railroad Axeman. These 80 cases have many things in common : all of them are fascinating, all of them are scary, all of them were unsolved at the time this book was printed. Here are the 80 cases you'll find in this amazing book :
