Serial Killers Abridged Reviews
Because it was short stories,it kept it easy to put down when needed, but eager to pick back up and continue on.
This is not a book for someone who does not like short works or compendiums. But if you want to now want to know what evil can walk among us unknown and what the warpped mind of a serial killer can do to many victims and families then this book will give you that information. This book has 100 killers and tells you the main idea of their killings and what their was sentencing was. As with all of RJ Parker's works this one is well researched and full of information on the serial killers within the pages.
ENJOYED THIS BOOK! Highly recommend it to anyone interested in true crime, 306 pages filled with 100 short stories (a few pages each). Very interesting because most of the crimes took place many, many years ago, and the more recent crimes had some info I hadn’t heard before. The picture selection is very graphic so DO NOT just flip through the book without preparing yourself first (like I did!) In the paperback edition the pictures start on page 291.

This is a great book for someone new to true crime or someone who prefers short works and compendiums. If you want to know the gist of the crimes of the most depraved serial killers in history, then this book will give you that information. Included are 100 serial killer cases recounting the main facts of their horrific deeds and their sentencing.
As with all of RJ Parker's works, this one is well researched and full of information. In spite of the short style of each case, the author does a spectacular job at retelling the events in a factual, objective and succinct manner.
Highly recommend this one to fans of True Crime new and old.
Got this as a free download from Kindle Prime and was so disappointed in it. I read about a third of this book and had to abandon it because it was so badly written. The grammar is often appalling and I don’t know how it got through proof-reading or editing. It’s a compendium of short, couple of pages, descriptions of serial killers both recent and in the past. However, the fascinating subject matter has been rendered stale and uninteresting by the flat writing.
