About this title

Synopsis:

Two nationally renowned authorities on multiple murders hold a magnifying glass to the minds of the perpetrators of these hideous crimes to explain the seemingly inexplicable. Fox and Levin leave no stone unturned as they examine the psychological, sociological, and biological explanations behind these savage misdeeds. Illustrations.

From the Publisher:

In the last decade the world has witnessed a frightening surge in mass murders and serial killings. This rash of multiple murders -- in the sheer number of body counts and volume of blood spilled -- has shocked civilized society. With each new discovery of another serial killer, the level of brutality and gore seems to sink us even deeper into the abyss of inhumanity. Why this sudden proliferation of multiple murders, be they the bloody trail of carnage of a serial murderer or the unexpected deadly explosion of a mass murderer? What makes someone go on a murderous rampage? How do serial killers and mass murderers differ?

Criminologists James Alan Fox and Jack Levin - -the nationally renowned authorities on multiple murder -- have led the field in investigating these phenomena for over a decade. In this absobring work, they hold a magnifying glass to the minds of the perpetrators of these hideous crimes to explain the seemingly inexplicable. They produce profiles of the kinds of people who follow these murderous paths and examine the reasons behind their vicious acts. They also describe the latest law enforcement methods used to track down these heinous killers.

Fox and Levin explore why multiple-murder sprees are erupting not only with greater frequency but in more gruesome ways. The authors leave no stone unturned in examining the psychological, sociological, and biological explanations behind these savage misdeeds. This engrossing book is the culmination of years of original research as well as one-on-one interviews with mass and serial murderers.
