Books on Serial Killers, Mass Murderers and Spree Killers

The following listed True Crime books are a useful source for researching serial killers, mass murderers and spree killers. Although it took several months to compile this list, it may not be complete. Other existing books on any of the mentioned killers may deliberately be not mentioned (due too many errors or fantasizing and low rating by specialists). Some of these books were used as reference source(s) for our articles and stories since they are the most reliable currently available.

I’ve added a couple of books that relate to single infamous murder cases of which the accused had committed previous murder attempts or cases of torture.

Should there be any book – not listed below – and be worth mentioning, feel free to send me an e-mail. This list was last updated on May 7, 2017. You can sign up for our newsletter, if you want to be kept updated of new updates, tip and book reviews.
