Overview

From Vlad the Impaler to The Orange County Killer

Lust, power, madness and money drive us all in our daily lives, yet we know the difference between right and wrong, and most of us don't act on our impulses. But there are people we mix with every day who are certifiable psychopaths, lacking empathy and remorse. Mix this cold-heartedness and disconnection from society with the pressures of everyday life and you have the makings of a serial killer. True Crime: Serial Killers details cold-hearted serial killers from Jack the Ripper to Blue Beard and La Bestia, right through to modern day horrors. From the earliest recorded accounts right up to the modern day and using shocking first-hand evidence, this book delves into the horrific psychology of multiple killers to expose to the reader the horrific reality of these cold-hearted psyches.
