5.0 out of 5 stars Chilling!
Some evil killers here! What scares you the most is the fact some of them are walking amongst us send shivers down your spine just thinking about it! It's a shame they can't catch them all. I thought they found out bible John was Peter Tobin!? And jack the stripper could of been that Welsh killer Harold jones?
And Steve Wright as been linked to some of the killings...

3.0 out of 5 stars The Mammoth Book of Killers,one of many Mammoth books...
This book put me off more than a little by the long list of Mammoth Book titles inside the front cover. For example
The Mammoth Book of Errotic literature, but there are plenty of other dubious sounding Mammoth titles.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Mammoth Book of Killers,one of many Mammoth books..., 5 Feb 2013

This book put me off more than a little by the long list of Mammoth Book titles inside the front cover. For example
The Mammoth Book of Errotic literature, but there are plenty of other dubious sounding Mammoth titles.
This particular Mammoth tome obviously deals with Killers at Large and therefore loses some interest as many of the killers are not captured or only suspected of the crimes. The most interesting segment for me is on the Guatamalan
mass killings of the population during Guatamala's recent bloody past.I must have known of this terrible history but it had got lost in all the other horrors that we are constantly bombarded with.
A book to dip into rather then read from cover to cover(for me anyway).

And Steve Wright as been linked to some of the killings in this book. But this book was obviously written before they knew this. A very interesting but scary book. I wouldn't read it on your own late at night though!

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting book with some fascinating stories!, 17 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is quite an interesting read in the area of unsolved homicides & serial killings from around the world. It is quite hefty so you will certainly find some interesting cases. What I really liked about this book is the depth & breath of cases covered!

Cases covered range from The Austin servant slayer killings which predated Jack the Ripper , to an Atlanta ripper style killer whose only known description is said to have been that of a smartly dressed colored gentleman ! There are also modern cases some of which are less well known for example Atlanta`s own Son of Sam style killer in 1977 ....
Some murders written about happened in Ireland ,Scotland,Argentina etc.

For a single volume it presents an exhaustive well research effort by the author into killers at large. This book is certainly worth reading if you like the more scarier violent unsolved murders ranging from pre- Jack the Ripper all the way to the late 90`s , however some of the killers mentioned in the book are no longer at large as some of the cases have been solved via DNA e.g the Glasgow strangling of a prostitute on a bitterly cold morning, and one of the woman who was raped,murdered and dumped in a mountain in Ireland around 1979 ....

This review is from: The Mammoth Book of Killers at Large (Mammoth Books) (Kindle Edition)
The title should read 'American only' killers at large. Some of the stories were far too long with too much unnecessary detail and several were, to my mind, 'scraping the bottom of the barrel'. I doubt if many british readers would either know, or care about the majority of cases.
