Was it because they were subconsciously trying to kill the drunken, violent man that was their father that brothers Luke Karamazov and Tommy Searl from Kalamazoo became serial murderers?
Addressing this and other questions, author Conrad Hilberry presents an unusually vivid and detailed portrait of two contrasting psychological types in this account. In 1964, Luke confessed to a five-week murder spree in which he killed five men. Tommy was convicted of the rape and murder of four women in 1972.
Hilberry investigates the relationship between the brothers, as well as their feelings about their parents, about the prison staff, and about the woman who has been married to each of them. With the drama of fiction, the resulting story is bizarre, somewhat grisly, but always psychologically revealing.

True Crime At It's Finest
It's not often that a true crime story becomes a case study in the psychology of two homicidal brothers, and as a result this one's a doozy. I am personally interested in how the childhood/history of a killer may help to create said killer and this book delves into the lives of two killers who had similar childhoods, making it a particularly interesting read for me. If your brother is a murderer and you're wondering about you, this is a great choice! I would also recommend this story to any true crime or psychology lovers.
