Mark Twain wrote: There is a great difference between feeding parties to wild beasts and stirring up their finer feelings in an inquisition. One is the system of degraded barbarians, the other of enlightened civilized people.

This A-Z encyclopedia of 150 serial killers is the ideal reference book. Included are the most famous true crime serial killers, like Jeffrey Dahmer, John Wayne Gacy, and Richard Ramirez, and not to forget the women who kill, such as Aileen Wuornos and Martha Rendell. There are also lesser known serial killers, covering many countries around the world, so the range is broad.
Each of the serial killer files includes information on when and how they killed the victims, the background of each killer, or the suspects in some cases such as the Zodiac killer, their trials and punishments. For some there are chilling quotes by the killers themselves. The Big Book of Serial Killers is an easy to follow collection of information on the world's most heinous murderers.
This is a collection of synopses briefly describing the backgrounds of and murders committed by 150 serial killers. In most cases, the victims and outcomes are included when known. They're arranged alphabetically and formatted for easy reference. It can be read straight through, but works as well as a time-filler or reference, reading a case at a time.
Kevin Kollins performs competently.
