Product Description

Product Description

Carl Panzram was gang-raped at the age of 14 and by way of revenge forcibly sodomized more than a thousand boys and men as well as committing over 20 murders.

Ed Kemper shot his grandmother once in the head and twice in the back and went on to murder his grandfather, his mother, her friend and six female hitch-hikers.

Jerry Brudos strangled Jan Whitney in his house and left her body dangling from the ceiling for several days.

Pietro Pacciani got 13 years in prison for killing a travelling salesman who had slept with his fiancée. Not only did Pacciani stab the man 19 times, but he also raped the corpse.

The World's Most Evil Psychopaths provides a concise, yet detailed look at some of the most dangerous individuals who have ever lived. Starting with examples of the earliest recorded psychopaths, author John Marlowe presents a carefully chosen cross-section of history's most infamous criminals, whose fascinating life stories are viewed with an unflinching gaze, making for a chilling, but engrossing read.

Synopsis

This work includes a carefully chosen cross-section of the world's most infamous psychopaths, whose fascinating life stories are told in unflinching fashion. This makes for a chilling yet compelling and engrossing read. It features more than 70 grittily revealing photos. Case histories covered include Gilles de Rais, Elizabeth Bathory, Mary Anne Cotton, The Servant Girl Annihilator, Joseph Vacher, Harvey Glatman, Edmund Kemper, the Monster of Florence, John Wayne Gacy, Jr, Aileen Wuornos, Andrei Cjikatilo, and many others! This book includes several stories of those who were never identified - psychopaths who, it would appear, were never brought to justice.

4.0 out of 5 stars serial killing is nothing new... 21 Feb 2013
By N.O.
Format:Paperback
What I particularly like about this book is the way it delves into history, showing that serial killing is nothing new. Marlowe provides interesting accounts of people I'd never heard of, like Gilles de Rais of France and Elizabeth Báthory of Hungary, who were at it in the 15th and 16th centuries respectively. In fact, it would be good to see him do a book purely on historically psychopaths.

5.0 out of 5 stars Informative and accessible. 13 Mar 2014
By twizl
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
An excellent read, all be it a disturbing and often harrowing collection of the evil one human can inflict on another. It is well written and logically laid out. Informative and accessible. A good choice of read if you are interested in true crime and are not too squeamish.
