The Serial Killer Letters: A Penetrating Look Inside the Minds of Murderers
Author: Jennifer Furio
The Serial Killer Letters, the first book ever to provide actual case studies of this type of criminal in the form of personal letters, is a major and pioneering addition to the psychological literature on serial killers and their crimes. By offering the actual words of the killers themselves, this book provides readers the opportunity to come to their own conclusions about what kind of people these men really are, what makes them tick and what turned them into human killing machines in the first place. In addition to true-crime buffs, a wide variety of disciplines and professionals—including psychologists, criminologists, profilers, forensic psychologists, lawyers, police and corrections workers—will be grateful to have this unique opportunity to get an inside look at these most complex and dysfunctional individuals. Includes letters from Randall Woodfield (the “I-5 Killer”), Robin Gecht and Edward Spreitzer of the “Chicago Rippers” murders and David Gore.
