Talking To Serial Killers by Christopher Berry-Dee
Christopher Berry-Dee is a criminologist, and the editor of New Criminologist magazine. This book is a compilation of his interviews, both in person and letters or audio, with various serial killers. The reader is given a synopsis of each criminal's crimes and a view into their early background. The details of the crimes are interspersed with the actual quotes from the killers about the various crimes. There are excuses, protestations of innocence. Berry-Dee records it all, but lets the reader know that these men and women were convicted and put on Death Rows around the country for valid reasons.
This book is recommended for true crime buffs. They will read about some killers who are new to them, as well as having the psyche of more famous killers explored.
