Serial Killers

Jack the Ripper, Son of Sam and Others

Public Profiles

Jack the Ripper. Charles Manson. Ted Bundy. Jeffrey Dahmer. Aileen Wuornos. These names conjure images of the worst of humankind. Much of what we know about these infamous predators came from news coverage at the time they were committing the murders that would scare and intrigue generations of readers. Sketches of these uniquely terrifying people emerged through descriptions of the victims and crime scenes, likely suspects, trials, sentences, and, in some cases, their own deaths. Grouped into four chapters that span the 1890s through 2010s, this book profiles nine of the most infamous serial killers in history.
