From rampage killers to hunters that seek out human prey in the shadows of the night, this serial killer anthology is a collection of horror stories. Collectively these men were responsible for hundreds of deaths, and they all belong in the realm of the worst serial killers to date. Delve into eight different cases and explore the heinous deeds committed, the background of each killer, and the apparent motives for their crimes.
There are those who went on deadly rampages, such as Cho Seung-Hui and George Hennard; men who decided to inflict as much terror in one day as they possibly could. Famous serial killers are included, such as the Hillside Stranglers, Kenneth Bianchi and Angelo Buono, and the Beast of the Ukraine, Anatoly Onoprienko. There are also lesser known murderers such as Fritz Haarmann and Ronald Dominique, who preyed on young men for their own deviant pleasures.
Each of these true murder stories will leave you with a sense of horror and perhaps a little fear. David Parker Ray's surviving victims still live in fear today, and this notorious true crime story is one of the most sadistic and disturbing. With tales of torture, mind control and violence, very few survived their time in Ray's toy box.
The true crime stories in this book have been selected because of the horrendous nature of their actions and the sheer volume of victims they slaughtered. Innocent people, going about their daily business or asleep in their beds, all make up these serial killers true crime stories.

Stories about serial killers and their victims
Another great book from Jack Rosewood. This one is about serial killers, internationally as well as here in the US. It was well-written and well researched, with a lot of details, including each victim, and the motives. He also included quite a bit of the psychology behind each killer. One chapter is about David Ray Parker, a sadistic sexual serial killer that includes recordings by this killer. It is bone chilling, to say the least. Some of the killers were lesser known, such as Fritz Haarmann (who I had never heard of myself). I found the book to be very interesting, and I read it in one sitting. I just could not put it down.
