Culled from the pages of Wikipedia, this grisly collection may appeal to hardened true crime readers. The entries span nearly 60 murderers (some paired killers are listed together); they are mostly male and mostly white, as fits the statistical profile. Many conducted their crimes in the United States or Great Britain; misdeeds range from a single known murder to hundreds of suspected victims.
VERDICT Not for the faint of heart. The blood-spattered cover and straightforward title convey the type of information found here.
