An objective look at a fascinating criminal phenomenon—updated.

Praise for the hardcover edition:
"...recommended..."— American Reference Books Annual

The Encyclopedia of Serial Killers, Second Edition provides accurate, unglamorized information on hundreds of serial murder cases—from early history to the present. Written in a non-sensational manner, this comprehensive encyclopedia debunks many of the myths surrounding this most notorious of criminal activities. New major serial killers have come to light since the first edition was published, and many older cases have been solved (such as the Green River Killer) or further investigated (like Jack the Ripper and the "Zodiac" Killer). Completely updated entries and appendixes pair with more than 30 new photographs and many new entries to make this new edition more fascinating than ever.

New and updated entries include: "Axe Man of New Orleans" BTK Killer Jack the Ripper Cuidad Juarez, Mexico John Allen Muhammad and Lee Boyd Malvo, the Sniper Killers Gary Leon Ridgway, the Green River Killer Harold Frederick Shipman ViCLAS Coral Watts Aileen Wuornos Robert Lee Yates Jr. and more.
