Product description


"This formidably comprehensive, brilliantly researched book must be the most wide-ranging work on serial killers that has been written so far. The fact that it sprang from the author's brief encounters with two serial killers lends it a sense of personal urgency."--Colin Wilson, author of Killers Among Us and Written in Blood.

"Serial Killers: The Method and Madness of Monsters is one of the most complete books I have read on serial killers. If you are fascinated by the human mind and by those who are abnormal, this is the book for you."--Roundtable Reviews


In this unique book, Peter Vronsky documents the psychological, investigative and cultural aspects of serial murder. Beginning with its first recorded instance in ancient Rome, through fifteenth-century France up to such notorious contemporary cases as Ed Kemper and Ted Bundy, and including what Vronsky describes as the "serial rampage killer", this exploration spans both the globe and time. Vronsky not only offers sound theories on what makes a serial killer, but also provides concrete suggestions on how to survive an encounter with one - from recognising verbal warning signs to physical confrontational resistance. Exhaustively researched and including transcripts of interviews with murderers, Serial Killers covers every conceivable aspect of an endlessly riveting true crime phenomenon.
