9780425196403: Serial Killers: The Method and Madness of Monsters

A comprehensive examination into the frightening history of serial homicide—including information on America’s most prolific serial killers.

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 on 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.

Vronsky not only offers sound theories on what makes a serial killer but also makes concrete suggestions on how to survive an encounter with one—from recognizing verbal warning signs to physical confrontational resistance. 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 book covers every conceivable aspect of an endlessly riveting true-crime phenomenon.

About the Author:

Peter Vronsky is the author of two bestselling true-crime histories: Serial Killers: The Method and Madness of Monsters and Female Serial Killers: How and Why Women Become Monsters. He is an investigative historian, author, filmmaker and new media designer. He holds a Ph.D. from the University of Toronto in criminal justice history and espionage in international relations.

Review:

"Smart and hip. A 'Fast Food Nation' or 'Black Hawk Down' of serial killer books."--Amazon reader review.

"If you are interested in the stuff on Criminal Minds than this book is for you!"

"This is a really well written and gripping book without the usual bragging that so-called 'expert' profilers indulge in. Many 'experts' huff and puff how sick and depraved their serial killing subjects are, but Vronsky almost objectively slips into their minds revealing what is really going on. Absolutely brilliant book with some amazingly scary stories. The last chapter, on how to survive a serial killer if you are unlucky enough to be captured by one, is the scariest--how thin the line can be between death and survival."--Goodreads reader reviews.

"Vronsky is as close to a master storyteller as you're going to get with the subject matter, and his knowledge and insight are superior to anyone else writing about serial killers today."--Barnes & Noble reader review.
