At first with this book I felt that the case studies were a little skipped over, but by the end of the first 3rd with the study of Ted Bundy, the case studies got a lot more informative and relevant to the information being given.
I found no typos in my version of the kindle book and the formatting was fine too.
A great read, if you're into psychology or interested in the subject matter, although I warn you it is a little graphic in parts.
The research?....well, in the copy I have the author manages to get Harold Shipman's (the serial killer with one of the highest body counts in history) name wrong! Fred and Rosemary West are mentioned in a sentence....that's about it.
Editing?....the amount of typos in the book is appalling. And there are several paragraphs in the books that are repeated word for word several times.
Having said all that. It is informative and an easy read.
Not a book I'd suggest for serious research though.
This book is laid out well. Vronksy details the exploits of many of the well-known murderers, such as the Boston Stranger and Charles Manson. He also writes about lesser-known serial killers, many of which I had never heard of. He'll briefly outline their lives, their crimes, their investigation, and their punishment if they were caught. He'll pepper his prose with interview quotations.
It's a great beginning overview of the major and minor serial killers (mainly American) and is a must-read if you are fascinated by reading about those who choose to prey on other humans.
