The Encyclopaedia of Serial Killers, Second Edition provides accurate information on hundreds of serial murder cases - from early history to the present. Written in a non-sensational manner, this authoritative encyclopaedia debunks many of the myths surrounding this most notorious of criminal activities. New major serial killers have come to light since the first edition was published, and many older cases have been solved (such as the Green River Killer) or further investigated (like Jack the Ripper and the ""Zodiac"" Killer). Completely updated entries and appendixes pair with more than 30 new photographs and many new entries to make this new edition more fascinating than ever. New and updated entries include: ""Axe Man of New Orleans""; BTK Strangler; Jack the Ripper; Cuidad Juarez, Mexico; John Allen Muhammad and Lee Boyd Malvo, the Sniper Killers; Gary Leon Ridgway, the Green River Killer; and Harold Frederick Shipman.… (mer)

AN ESSENTIAL ADDITION TO YOUR TRUE CRIME LIBRARY

This book is exactly what it says it is -- an ENCYCLOPEDIA of killers. Each alphabetized entry runs from a paragraph or two in length to several pages, depending on the killer. I am writing this review in 2020, several years after I first read this book, so I can tell you that many of the entries will be out of date now as some of the killers have now been caught. Although I say I have "read the book" that is a bit misleading as I have never sat down and read it cover to cover, in alphabetical order. Instead I have read about the different killers at different time, usually after I have encountered a story online or watched a program about one in particular then grabbed this book to check what it says about the killer in question. So, I suppose I will never consider my experience with this book "finished." It will always sit on my shelves as an essential true crime reference. If you enjoy reading about true crime, and specifically serial killers, this book is a must have. ( )

I enjoyed this book, it's written as an encylopedia from A - Z . Gives details of the killers story including their early years, past convictions, victims and so on. I really enjoyed the entries from the earliest serial killers, something you often don't hear about. Not sure if it is just me but I did seem to find a reoccuring theme in the entries; most of the killers were oftem times ignored by the justice system, going their entire young adult lives in and out of the court system only to be let go and then later convicted of serial killings. I also liked the face that the author lists types of serial killers, and the thinking, psychology behind them such as medical murders. It is an interesting read and one you don't have to read from page 1 to the end, you can pursue this in your own time and get as much from it as you want. ( )

I have to admit that I got this book for one reason only: The section about Elizabeth Bathory (I collect books with mentions of her). However, this book has far exceeded my expectations, I recieved it yesterday and have already read quite a bit of it. The encyclopedia format makes it easy to read and find information, and there are so many different people, so many different motives and stories, it's really an interesting read. Chilling, but interesting. ( )

This book is laid out in true dictionary or encyclopedia format and gives quite a bit of detail on hundreds of killers. It also has an appendix for solo killers, team killers and unsolved cases providing a snippet of info on the killer's and / or victim's name, gender, race, DOB, and method of death. A very thorough and fact filled book. ( )
