Serial Slaughter is a "behind the screams" look at America's murder epidemic. Michael Newton spent over a decade sifting through evidence from police files, court records, psychiatric testimony and news reports. Using the case histories of more than 800 serial killers, Newton looks for patterns and answers:

·          What turns innocent children into grown-up homicidal maniacs?
·          Does violent pornography create sex slayers?
·          What traits do serial killers look for in their victims?
·          Is there any way to identify and treat predators before they start to hunt?

Serial Slaughter includes the word-for-word statements of convicted serial killers talking about sex, murder, life and death. It includes the actual forms used by the FBI to "profile" murderers. And it includes dozens of disturbing photos.
