The Encyclopedia of Serial Killers - Mike Newton Don't ask me why I am fascinated by serial killers but I am. And from all the rave reviews for this book I am clearly not the only one. If you do want an informative, no nonsense book about the topic that covers pretty much any aspect you can think of and doesn't try to sensationalize, this is it. There are well written accounts of many serial killers going from obscure to the famously notorious. Excellent informational text that entertains without going over the edge.
