The Wikipedia Encyclopedia of Serial Killers: An A–Z Guide to History’s Most Heinous Murderers

Skyhorse. (Wikipedia). Apr. 2020. 600p. ISBN 9781510755383. pap. $16.99. REF
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.
