Ronald Joseph DeFeo Jr, Aileen Carol Wuornos, Michael Ross, and Carol Bundy are just a few names that pop into this book that journeys into the mind of famous serial killers and what makes them tick.
Gruesome details of the murders spun in this morbidly fascinating tale of true crimes, exposing the weakness of the judiciary system and improper police investigations. I was honestly intrigued about the story of Carol Bundy and Douglas Clark and the fact that the author gave the impression that Clark was wrongly convicted and “throwing” all the dead bodies in Carol’s backyard.
The writing isn’t bad, I liked how he started each of these cases with a (quite detailed sometimes) background information of the offenders and working his way up chronologically through the murders and police enquiry. Personally, I can say that I would’ve preferred a more classical approach, but the form doesn’t matter as much, I’m just being picky.
I enjoyed the book, well, as much as someone can enjoy reading about true crime. Offers some good insight into their minds and even though I wouldn’t say it’s one of the best out there, I would still recommend it for a read, especially for those who haven’t ready anything like this before.
