Meh. I couldn't finish this. I got as far as Jesse Pomeroy (the book lists the killers alphabetically). As I read I noticed some typos and also some inaccuracies, but none of them serious -- until I got to Jesse, where the account said they found "12 corpses in the rubbish heap" in his basement and he "confessed to torturing to death 27 youngsters." Wrong, wrong, wrong. Jesse killed exactly two people. The most cursory research would have shown that. I don't understand why the authors messed this book up so badly.

The only reason I'm giving it more than one star is because it has a lot of excellent photographs, many of which I've never seen before. ( )
