I read a lot of true crime, and this book was really interesting about many serial killers and their childhoods, history of their beginnings in crime/killing. ( )

Maybe like others who picked up this book and began reading these surreal but all too real profiles of serial killers I wondered why. It could have been just to try and understand the lowest levels of depravity these individuals attained and why.

The book is commented throughout by these characters who I know nothing about featured in a cartoon like fashion. Their commentary trended on the satirical to comical, that I soon tuned out.

The profile writing itself was concise, insightful, and well presented. Each of these evil people had the MO that seemed to slip through the cracks time and again before nailed down by authorities. Some enabled by slopping police work but often succeeded by the evil genius several possessed.

I found myself weighing who I considered the worse. And to me that goes to BTK who took such pleasure in delivering the pain and suffering. Yet he allowed to live out his life with the mercy he never spared his victims. But the ghoulish award has to go to Jeffrey Dahmer who is covered as the finale. His inhumanity was truly appalling and cannot be explained by anything that I can think of.
