I expected more to be honest, there is just a page or two on each person. Disappointing book not worth buying

I generally read this type of encyclopaedia as a means to obtaining the book should the short version usually contained in these types of books on one particular serial killer are either unknown to me or a book I wish to revisit-

Most of my reading material has been sourced this way so I had read most of the individual books on almost all if the serial killers in this book-

There are a couple of names which are new to me and i will search to see if there is a full version book published.

Having said that , this book was fascinating and interesting to the point i could not out it down

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.

a great book on the topic, more women would have added something a bit different, I found it well written and a good length.

Very informative book, telling a bit about the background of these well known (mostly) murderers and what set them off.

Interesting true stories it makes you think why and how can anyone kill to the scale in some of the detailed stories.

I found myself looking for explanations for these appalling events but it was not easy. Violent home backgrounds were common, but good homes also produced killers. Most but not all the killings covered here were by males. Getting sexual satisfaction from killing suggests more than environmental causes. Mass school killings seem to involve frustration and revenge; but of course many people will have had some negative school experiences without resorting to killings.

There is a good bibliography, and some photographs of the killers. The killings are grouped under various headings (serial killers, lust killers etc). The psychopathic behaviours described here are obviously abnormalities - partly defined by the horrifying events themselves.
