Reflecting on the psychological inadequacy underpinning so many acts of violence, Colin Wilson introduces this catalogue of 20 serial killers from Britain, the USA and France. Covering cases such as the Yorkshire Ripper (Peter Sutcliffe), Son of Sam (David Berkowitz) and the Acid Bath Murderer (John George Haigh), each chapter describes the crimes and the police investigation and ends with a 'Case file' setting out the murderer's background and psychological profile.
