I received a free copy of Serial Killers: True Crime Stories of the Most Vicious Serial Killers in History: Serial Killers Profiles And Stories by Brody Clayton in an Amazon promotion.
I gave this brutal book almost three stars. There were numerous grammatical errors. This frightening story details how "Hundreds of people have tried to study the minds of these psychopaths in an attempt to understand what fuelled their hatred against their victims. The various reasons that motivate murderers to commit such heinous crimes range from the sense of power to some trauma that they went through as a child."
"What is truly scary is that a few of them feel nothing; hate crimes we can, perhaps understand--it means they exhibit some emotion.
"But what of those who truly feel nothing, no hate, no pity but only a sadistic sense of satisfaction at having accomplished something? What could have broken them so much that they are now only empty shells who only mar & scar everything they come into contact with?"
The most frightening thing about psychopathic killers is their emptiness of emotion. Psychiatrics have been unable to determine what makes them kill other than the desire to hold the power of life & death in their hands.
The brutal serial killers described in this book are: Ted Bundy across the United States, Manual Octavio Bermudez in Columbia, Peter Sutcliffe the Yorkshire Ripper in Britain, Robert Pickton in British Columbia in Canada, The Lainz Angels of Death (four nurses aides) in Austria, & Sergey Golovkin in Moscow, the Soviet Union.
