Murder has been with humanity from the beginning, and since the 1888 Jack the Ripper case, we’ve been fascinated with serial killers. People who kill repeatedly, often for inexplicable reasons, seem to tap into some emotional well we humans possess.
2015 Serial Killer True Crime Anthology by R. J. Parker and five other true crime writers really taps that well deeply. Graphical accounts of serial murder cases, including the Babysitter, or Oakland County Child Killer (OCCK), a case that has yet to be solved, among others, that read like fiction, will keep you on the edge of your chair. Some of the best true crime writing I’ve seen, this book is not for the sensitive or squeamish. It includes details that will have you looking askance at your neighbor, or spouse, and sleeping with one eye open. Fourteen first-rate stories penned by some of the best in the business.
A total five star book!
