Many unknown serial killers are prowling the homes, schools, and streets of this nation. Only a few have been caught.

This book will take you on a terrifying journey inside the mind of one of the first known serial kilers. In the early 70s, Edmund Kemper III stalked young women on the coastline of California. Against these scenic backdrops, he butchered his mother, her friend and six coeds.

As this book explores the depth of Kemper's madness, it reveals the elements that all serial killers have in common, and why our culture is for them a kind of petri dish.
