    Well I wasn t to impressed with this book I did finish it completely However, there was def a time in this book about 1 2 of the way into it where I did want to stop reading and just get a different book But I had to stick it out to see I wanted a book that was very, personal to the single serial killers really got inside of their minds, possibly interviews, life stories, that type of stuff However this was a collection of paragraphs about why some people do what they do It wasn t very specific [...]

    A very well written and well thought out book The title is a bit of a misnomer, as this book covers many types of murder besides serial murder The author even discusses some cases where the killer might be innocent I had no idea some people still doubted Charles Manson s guilt He has interviewed many of the famous murderers he writes about, and discusses his impressions of them in a way that makes them seem very real to me.

    Don t expect a definitive study of the criminal mind when you pick up this book Author Levin gives a rather general view of his own experiences in interviewing killers and the conclusions to which he comes regarding them He chooses certain characteristics and then discusses which killers have or don t have them As such, this book is about a criminal profiler s mind in doing his work, and yes, he does mention that he doesn t sleep well at night.

    The title is definitely not indicative of a book that includes entire chapters on threats both empty and dangerous and don t snitch culture The author may know a lot about serial killers, but this book s content goes well outside of that realm and the author does not do those subjects justice.

    This book was interesting, if a bit disjointed and shallow Robert Ressler still looms large as the definitive author on the subject.
