"The exploits of Depression-era homicidal sweethearts Bonnie and Clyde and the 1960s strangler who inspired the necktie murders in Alfred Hitchcock's Frenzy are among the true stories behind many of cinema's most famous crimes and criminals. Schechter, author of numerous books on serial killers, tracks the path from felony to film." --Publishers Weekly
