Description
Given the amount of media coverage they receive, serial killers sometimes seem like the rock stars of the criminal justice system. To explain this phenomenon, Scott Bonn analyzes how law enforcement, news outlets, and such fictionalized portrayals as The Silence of the Lambs have contributed to the public's rather skewed perception of such figures as Jack the Ripper, Charles Manson, Jeffrey Dahmer, Richard Ramirez (the "Night Stalker"), and John Wayne Gacy. In explaining the mindset of serial killers, Bonn draws upon his correspondence with David Berkowitz (the "Son of Sam") and Dennis Rader (the "BTK Killer").
