  • Eeeek! None.. I can read horror and all about people killing others and not be bothered... But serial killers wig me out! Killing as a crime of passion, no big deal I can handle that... killing for the pleasure of it... AHHHHHH!

  • Jack the Ripper.... I guess, if I had to choose.

  • I love true crime books. I like reading ones about the Zodiac Killer, Jeffery Dahmar (Sp?), Jack the Ripper, and the Green River Killer.

  • I read TONS of true-crime, and seriously, I've read about so many that I can't choose at this point. I highly recommend Anne Rule if you haven't read her books, though.

  • BTK (Dennis Rader) fascinates me the most of all serial killers i've read about. i'm also incredibly fascinated by charles manson, eileen warnos, and jeffery dahmer

  • I too have an interest in true crime but I do not take pleasure in reading about serial killers per se. The part I am interested in is how they were caught, the officers that caught them, policing methods used to identify and capture them, etc. The suffering these beings inflict on their victims and the people who are left in the aftermath of their existence is disgusting. Learning to identify potential killers early, the behaviours they exhibit, the things that are almost "unique" to their warped and sick personalities and how to catch them with minimal damage to the innocent public is more what I am interested in.

  • I read a lot of true crime. I think the one of the most interesting was Herb Baumeister because he lived right in my area.
