For the Record #3: Serial Killers

Here’s a list of some (but not all) of the interesting writings touching on the subject of serial killers and their crimes that I read whilst working on Serial Killers: Crimes of the Century.
Update: I managed to win myself a copy of David Canter‘s excellent-looking new Forensic Psychology For Dummies via Twitter which is both a rare and timely treat. So, thank you David and I take great pleasure in adding it here and looking forward to being educated above my FP-dummy level.
