Serial Killers: The Method and Madness of Monsters (Google eBook)
In this unique book, Peter Vronsky documents the psychological, investigative, and cultural aspects of serial murder, beginning with its first recorded instance in Ancient Rome, through fifteenth-century France, up to such notorious contemporary cases as cannibal/necrophile Ed Kemper, Henry Lee Lucas, Ted Bundy, and the emergence of what he classifies as "the serial rampage killer" such as Andrew Cunanan. Exhaustively researched with transcripts of interviews with killers, and featuring up-to-date information on the apprehension and conviction of the Green River Killer and the Beltway Snipers, Vronsky's one-of-a-kind books covers every conceivable aspect of an endlessly riveting true-crime phenomenon.

Good reference but hard to read and not written that interestingly. The last chapter about "how to avoid a serial killer" is incredibly silly. Read full review
Review: Serial Killers: The Method and Madness of MonstersUser Review - Chantel Hall - Goodreads
This was a really interesting read. Fair warning thought, it is fairly graphic. There are descriptions of murders and sexual crimes and it is pretty intense in some places. But if you can stomach it, it's a fascinating look at serial killers. And there's a chapter on how to escape them! Read full review
