The World Encyclopedia of Serial Killers is the most comprehensive set of its kind. Crafted and curated by Susan Hall, this four-volume compendium boasts an impressive collection of over 1600 entries, chronicling the dark histories of serial killers from around the globe.
Defined by the FBI as a person who murders three or more people over a period of time with a hiatus of weeks or months between murders, serial killers have walked among us from the dawn of time, as these books will demonstrate. While the entries to these volumes will continue to grow—the FBI estimates that there are at least fifty serial killers operating in the United States at any given time—THE WORLD ENCYCLOPEDIA OF SERIAL KILLERS is as complete as possible through the end of 2017.
Volume Four T–Z marks the culmination of the series, delving into the enigmatic realm of Unsolved Serial Killer Cases. Inside, you'll encounter notorious figures such as the Terminator, Anatoly Yuriyovych Onoprienko, the Trailside Killer, David Joseph Carpenter, Joseph Vacher, the Vampire of Sacramento, Richard Trenton Chase, and the Voroshilovgrad Maniac, Zaven Sarkisovich Almazyan. Additionally, Volume Four sheds light on perplexing Unsolved Serial Killer Cases, including the Adelaide Child Murders, Axeman of New Orleans, Chillicothe Killer, Dead Women of Juarez, Korea Frog Boy Murders, and Volga Maniac. This volume meticulously documents these killers, among approximately 175 others, alongside an extensive compilation of around 225 Unsolved Serial Killer cases.
