Anotace

 

The Need to Killrips away the myths and mystery associated with serial killers, shedding new light on the world's most terrifying individuals. Dr. Steven Egger, creator of the first statewide computer system for tracking serial killers, has been researching this phenomenon for 20 years. In this book, he brings a clear eye and real objectivity to questions that are rarely answered accurately in the press. Is there really a "profile"? Who do serial killers murder? How do they choose their victims? What motivates them? Are they "mutants from hell," or frighteningly like the rest of us. And why, exactly, are we so fascinated with them? Drawing on his unmatched expertise, Eggers profiles seven of history's most notorious serial killers, including John Wayne Gacy, Ted Bundy, Henry Lee Lucas, and Jeffrey Dahmer. Egger also profiles unsolved cases of serial murder from across the United States: the work of killers who may still be out there, planning to strike again. Finally, Egger takes readers behind the scenes with the investigators, exploring the tools at their disposal--and the obstacles standing in their way.
