Bloodletters and Badmen by Jay Robert Nash
This book is exactly what the cover says – an encyclopedia. If you are the owner of a very small and über annoying dog like me, I recommend not dropping it whilst said tiny critter is prancing around your feet lest you end up in the next edition as the “Great Puppy Killer of ’14.”
If you’re looking for in-depth coverage of your favorite bad guy, then this isn’t the book for you. If you’re looking to scare the poop out of your new neighbors with an abundance of horrifying knowledge about a lot of different criminals, or you’re seeking some quality material to peruse while sitting on the “porcelain throne,” then this is probably a good choice.
Let’s face it, as morbid as it is to admit - murderers are fascinating.
