EXCELLENT FOR MY OUTLINE DUE IN ENGL101 ON MASS MURDERERS: ORGANIZED AND UNORGANIZED "TRAITS"
If these authors compare Ted Bundy to Henry Lee Lucas -- which they obviously have -- their research needs some help.
I doubt that they had personal contact with both of them. Sometimes authors and "criminal experts" often depend too much on law enforcement or authors who have not done their homework and have published ridiculous books (often praised by law enforcement officials and educational types who also have little knowledge of the real facts or personalities).
Sometimes a few hours of personal interviews convince authors like this that they "know" the subjects. How utterly ridiculous.
There are good reporters who spent years of research and hundreds of hours with Lucas and Bundy.
Were they contacted before this book was written? I doubt it.
