Christopher Berry-Dee interviews several serial killers within their prisons having gained their trust. Their remorseless pursuit of horror and violence is described in their own words from unique audio and video taped interviews.

Christopher has collated these interviews into this amazing and disturbing book. Not only does he interview some of the worlds most evil men and women, he also reproduces their own stories as they describe their crimes and often their alarming lack of remorse.

You could know these people.

The most unsettling part of these stories is that you could actually know the monsters they describe. The accounts of the upbringing of these killers are neither obscure or, if we are to believe the media scare stories, that unusual. This is the most unsettling aspect of the book, our society could be producing more and more of these people.

The book covers the childhood, upbringing and murderous lives of 9 serial killers each culminating with details of their interviews. The 9 include Aileen Carol Wuornos the subject of the film Monster where she is played by Charlize Theron and Ronald D'Foe the killer on whom the Amityville horror films were base.

An interesting read but I found it best to space out the reading of each account as the subject matter is quite disturbing.
