There is little more terrifying than those who hunt, stalk and snatch their prey under the cloak of darkness. These hunters search not for animals, but for the touch, taste, and empowerment of human flesh. They are cannibals, vampires and monsters, and they walk among us. <br /><br />These serial killers are not mythical beasts with horns and shaggy hair. They are people living among society, going about their day to day activities until nightfall. They are the Dennis Rader’s, the fathers, husbands, church going members of the community. <br /><br />This A-Z encyclopedia of 150 serial killers is the ideal reference book. Included are the most famous true crime serial killers, like Jeffrey Dahmer, John Wayne Gacy, and Richard Ramirez, and not to mention the women who kill, such as Aileen Wuornos and Martha Rendell. There are also lesser known serial killers, covering many countries around the world, so the range is broad.<br /><br />Each of the serial killer files includes information on when and how they killed the victims, the background of each killer, or the suspects in some cases such as the Zodiac killer, their trials and punishments. For some there are chilling quotes by the killers themselves. The Big Book of Serial Killers is an easy to follow collection of information on the world’s most heinous murderers.<br />

<h1>Eight True Crime Stories of Murder & Mayhem<h1><h2>First Book of the True Crime Case Histories Series (2019)</h2>A quick word of warning. The true crime short stories within this book are unimaginably gruesome. Most news stories, television crime shows and true crime documentaries tend to leave out the most horrible details about murder cases simply because they are too extreme for the general public. <br /><br />I have done my best to include full details of these stories no matter how sickening they may be. In these true crime stories you'll find that truth really is more strange and vastly more disturbing than fiction.<br /><br />In my first book as a true crime author I've started with a few of the stories that have haunted me for some time. Some of these stories are unbelievable in their brutality while others are astounding in the stupidity of the killers. <br /> <br />You'll find a story of a religious evangelical christian who would rather strangle his wife and two young boys than lose his prominent job with the church. <br /><br />Then there's the story of a man that fills his wife's orifices with grease so she will be flammable from the inside. <br /><br />There's the story of the small-town doctor that goes through the unbelievable lengths of performing surgery on himself to avoid going to jail for raping his patients.<br /><br />Plus there're more stories of Serial Killers terrorizing cities and crime scenes that bring investigators and seasoned police to tears. <br /><br />This collection of stories are from all around the globe and have no common thread between them other than that they are both thought provoking and disturbing. <br /> <br />The stories included in this anthology are dark and creepy and will leave you with a new understanding of just how fragile the human mind can be.<br /><br />The stories include: Fred Grabbe, James Patterson Smith, Dr. John Schneeberger, Chris Coleman, Michelle Bica, Mary Bell, Graham Dwyer, Lawrence Bittaker and Roy Norris (The Toolbox Killers).<br /><br /><b>Scroll up to get your copy</b><br /><br />True Crime Case Histories Volume 2 is coming September 2019 featuring 12 more short stories of; True Crime, Murder & Mayhem, Serial Killer Biographies, and True Murder Case Files<br /><br />

Although 38 of my works survive today, I left no letters, and there is little known about my personal life.

II</i> is the sequel to the successful <i>Who Am I?</i> book and calendar. These quizzes are culled from <i>Biography</i> magazine's popular monthly column of the same name. Each month, ten mystery mini-biographies are presented to challenge faithful readers to deduce the identity behind each. Once again, 150 profiles have been collected to test true <i>Biography</i> fans and history buffs alike. The biographies featured in <i>Who Am I? II</i> range from those of important historical personalities such as John Quincy Adams and Harriet Beecher Stowe to current-day celebrities including Barbra Streisand and Anne Rice, ensuring there is something for everyone's gray matter.

<b>Cannibal. Necrophiliac. Kidnapper. Killer.</b><br /><br />The stories of serial killers often begin with terrible upbringings and sad events of trauma, but not all have such unfortunate beginnings. Some simply develop their evil on their own and become tainted without anyone realizing it.<br /><br />Jeffrey Dahmer was a man described by his own father as the result of a child becoming lost in the maelstrom while nobody paid attention, of a child who was strange and apathetic but who nobody bothered to ask why…<br /><br /><b>…The results were catastrophic.</b><br />Seventeen men lost their lives and were defiled even after death because of the desires of a neglected young boy who just wanted to fulfill his needs. The following is the tale of said child, the same young man who grew up to become the infamous Milwaukee Cannibal, one of the worst serial killers in humanity’s history. <br /><br /><b>Jeffrey Dahmer: The Gruesome True Story of a Hungry Cannibalistic Rapist and Necrophiliac Serial Killer</b> is a book that recounts the tale of the Milwaukee Cannibal, a man capable of committing the most truly degrading acts on his victims before and even after death; a man who to his last days — and long after — still haunts the city of Milwaukee with the memories of his horrific murders. <br /><br /><b>Be warned, reader, you aren’t just about to read about Jeffrey Dahmer and his acts. You are about to walk into his very mind.</b><br /><br /><b>What Amazon readers are saying:</b><br /><br />★★★★★ “It is a great read on this troubled serial killer. I do recommend it.”<br /><br />★★★★★ “I’ve read many books and watched many documentaries on Dahmer, but this is by far the best. Mr. Becker’s writing style makes understanding the feelings and emotions behind Dahmer as though you knew the killer. I could not put the book down!”<br /><br />★★★★★ “Great book! Short and to the point. It gave a full perspective of the evil that can exist in one person.”<br /><br />★★★★★ “This author truly has become a favorite of many. Each book, as of yet, has given me insights and facts to add to my knowledge of these crimes!”<br /><br />Scroll up, click “<b>Add to Cart</b>,” and delve into the dark story. This true-crime account isn’t for the faint of heart. Read it if you dare.
