First, Happy Friday! Not only is it one of the best days of the week, it’s also a gorgeous spring day here in Boston.
Just a quick update to kick off a new weekly series that I thought would be fun to do.
Welcome to Bargain Friday’s!
A new series where I’ll share the books I’ve picked up, either for FREE or on super sale, during the week (not including books I’ve received for reviews).
This week I picked up Serial Killers Encylopedia of 100 Serial Killers by RJ Parker and JJ Slate
Where to buy: Amazon
Kindle Price: $0.99
The ultimate reference for anyone compelled by the pathology and twisted minds behind the most disturbing of homicidal monsters. From A to Z, and from around the world, these serial killers have killed in excess of 3,000 innocent victims, affecting thousands of friends and family members. There are monsters in this book that you may not have heard of, but you won’t forget them after reading their case. This reference book will make a great collection for true crime enthusiasts. Each true story is in a Reader’s Digest short form.
So here’s the thing – I’m not really a big fan of true crime. True Crime novels are too procedural for me, generally dry and a little sterile. Perhaps I just haven’t found the right ones, but that has been my experience.
That aside, I am fascinated by the pathology of a killer. Have you ever seen that show Deadly Women? Or those serial killer documentaries on Netflix? I love that shit. A book detailing some of the deadly killers that have roamed our streets? I’m all over it.
