This is the history of serial killers in England, including the breakthroughs in forensic and psychological techniques that are used to track them down.

As well as documenting the crimes and the criminal investigations that led to the eventual capture of these British multiple murderers, experts reveal how modern psychological profiling techniques can provide a surprising number of details about a suspect.
