"Thirty-three chapters cover individual serial killers ... "rampages and sprees." ... will endear the book to readers who have a similar horrified fascination with the murderously depraved. ... This will see high circulation wherever true crime is popular." - Booklist

"While several of the book's histories are widely known ..., Estep also includes lesser-known cases ... Though Estep speculates on how these people became murderers and notes characteristics shared by some serial killers--narcissism, head injuries, animal torture, bed-wetting, being bullied--he concludes that we may never truly know why someone kills. ... concise, well-written case studies will leave readers wanting to learn more." - Library Journal
"Serial killing is a popular subject for those indulging in criminous extremism, reading about the horrors of HH Holmes and his "murder castle", the transatlantic monsters John Wayne Gacy, Ted Bundy and Dennis Rader, and Britain's Dennis Nilsen and John Christie. Denver paramedic Richard Estep has now further enriched the literature." - Fortean Times
"... relates the stories of 40 serial killers ... detailing their lives from childhood to adulthood, and the factors that contributed to their behavior. He profiles Jack the Ripper, Tsutomu Miyazaki, Andrei Chikatilo, Ted Bundy, John Wayne Gacy, Richard Ramirez, Harold Shipman, Aileen Wuornos, Edmund Kemper, the Zodiac Killer, H.H. Holmes, Albert Desalvo, Dennis Rader, Charles Whitman, and others." - Protoview Book News

"... wrap up "Serial Killers: The Minds, Methods, and Mayhem of History's Most Notorious Murders" by Richard Estep, for the best gift for a true crime fan ever." - Bookworm Sez
