review Signature Killers

In a real life scenario straight out of The Silence of the Lambs Robert Keppel went one on one with the notorious serial killer Ted Bundy who advised Keppel on the detective's highly publicized search for the elusive Green River Killer Bundy's chilling revelations were chronicled in The Riverman a page turner Ted Montgomery Detroit News praised by Ann Rule as the definitive book on serials But Ted Bundy wasn't the first killer of his kind or the last Signature KillersThey leave tel. The only part of this book I liked was the foreword The rest of it was repetitive just one example apparently one of the killers blood types belongs to only 13% of the population A fact the author told us a minimum of 3 times within one chapter and frustratingly uninteresting What I very often dislike about non fiction books is that authors always seem to struggle to remove themselves from the subject matter Often their opinion just seems to creep in when I would really like an impartial retelling Maybe I m being too ambitious in this thought I probably wouldn t mind hearing an author s opinion if it wasn t so obnoxious and big headed

Signature Killers

Ltale identifiers their gruesome calling cards at the scenes of their crime They are driven by a primitive motivation to act out the same brutality over and over With brilliant detection high tech analysis and a little luck they can be caught But what does the signature killer seek from victim to victim The answers are hidden among the grisly evidence the common threads that link each devastating actSparked by a growing concern over the steady rise of signature murders Robert Keppe. A grim grisly read detailing the atrocities visited on the victims of about 15 different serial killers the escalating pattern of violence and the evidence of signature in each crime scene Geared to be educational this one rarely becomes textbookey because it is so grounded in the horrific sights seen by homicide detectives The text focused on lesser known serial killers who were especially clear examples of this or that type of signature crime but touched on some of the best known cases as well and I even managed to learn new facts about the well worn cases of Bundy and Dahmer I have to say the arguments tended to fall apart when the authors were discussing Bill Heirens as if they were not sure of themselves in discussing this case The way Keppel uoted Ted Bundy as if he were an expert on pattern crimes rather than someone who killed 36 women because he had issues made me almost as ueasy as the crime scenes themselves
