About this deal

Prepare for an adrenaline-fueled rollercoaster ride with TIMBERWOLF, the first installment in the gripping "spy-fi" series by Tom Julian, where thrilling espionage and futuristic encounters meet! Sure, you can look at the photo of Ottis Toole, the "practicing cannibal" who was convicted of two murders in 1984, though who likely was responsible for over 100 more. They remain a fascinating enigma-how can they carry on apparently normal lives while carrying out acts of the utmost deprativity.

While Shaefer was convicted for just two murders -- both of them grisly -- there was strong evidence linking him to many, many more: perhaps over 100.It's well executed, entirely comprehensive and includes more details on this topic than most people may ever want or need. Completely updated entries and appendixes pair with more than 30 new photographs and many new entries to make this new edition more fascinating than ever. The profiles detail the crimes, what is known about the individual’s childhood and family, the investigation and prosecution of the murderer, and the sentence. With hundreds of entries spanning the entire spectrum of serial murder, this comprehensive resource examines these shocking crimes, and their infamous practicioners, from every angle.

If you want to know just the facts about all these crimes, this book if definitely one to have on your shelf! It also includes relevant topics that cover from different types of motives, tools, common themes of serial killing incidents and people who investigate the killings.The volume aims to aid understanding of the problem of serial homicide and to aid in the development of workable solutions to the problem. This book includes major serial killers, as well as many older cases that have been solved, such as the Green River Killer, or further investigated like Jack the Ripper and the Zodiac Killer. While the entries to these volumes will continue to grow—the FBI estimates that there are at least fifty serial killers operating in the United States at any given time— The World Encyclopedia of Serial Killers is as complete as possible through the end of 2017.

Anything and everything you want to know about the most macabre serial killers are located within these pages. Also, I felt this author was a little egotistical in places, thinking he was right and no-one else is which was a little annoying, and unwarranted. In RUBICON, the electrifying sequel to Tom Julian's acclaimed spy-fi series, TIMBERWOLF, our relentless hero once again finds himself in the eye of an interstellar storm.The entries include the Machete Murderer Juan Vallejo Corona, Maranhão Boy Mutilator Francisco das Chagas, Night Stalker Richard Ramirez, Rostov Ripper Andrei Romanovych Chikatilo, and Genesee River Killer Arthur John Shawcross.
