The book reads extremely well and each chapter had me gripped from beginning to end. The author has used a 'scale of evil' to select the worst serial killers in history and the selection process makes grim, yet fascinating reading. The book is split into a chapter for each killer and each one will leave you eager to move on to the next. Each killer has their background explained along with the full story of what they did, how they were caught and also why they committed their terrible crimes. All the names you'd expect are here, Fred and Rose West, Ian Brady and Myra Hindley, Ted Bundy and David Parker Ray along with others who you may not have heard of, but will be shocked to read about.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this and given the price, its very good value for money.
This book is both interesting and gripping, it is well written and easy to read. Although dealing with a grim subject it does provide an excellent overview of the worlds most evil serial killers. It will hook and horrify you until the very last page.
I highly recommend adding this book to your reading list. Great value for money.
The exceptions to this were transcripts printed of recordings of the terrorising and torturing of victims of the Moors Murderers and the Lake/Ng murder duo. While this emphasises the cruelty shown by these people to their victims, and while such transcripts are in the public domain, we often forget that the relatives of some of these unfortunate people are still very much alive.
That aside, this is a book well worth reading so long as you are prepared to face the ultimate depravity with which some people behave.
The chapters read like a very short newspaper column which was unable to deliver an insight of the material.
Unfortunately I was left disappointed and I am unable to recommend this book.
