This was the first book by Coulter that I've read and and I was pleasantly surprised. It started a bit slow but im glad i continued. I am always intrigued by serial killers and what leads them to their affinity for gruesome murder. You don't necessarily find the answer in a novel but novels are more fun to read than textbooks on abnormal psychology Jennifer Chase is an author that has written three novels involving serial killers and I think Jennifer is interested in the answers. I've got one of her books but I'll have to acquire the other two. She also writes a blog.
