About the book:

"It seems that when normal life goes into eclipse, the differences in cultural patterns also fade away, and at the outer edges of behavior, deviant patterns are the same, the world over." This absorbing second book from the serial-killer expert who wrote Whoever Fights Monsters has 10 chapters: (1) an unusual Japanese case of a doctor killing his family; (2) examples of the use and abuse of post-traumatic stress disorder diagnosis by Vietnam veterans; (3) the murder of a Japanese exchange student by a Baton Rouge homeowner; (4) review of patterns found in serial murders, including those in Japan; (5) interview with John Wayne Gacy, seeking to understand his psychology; (6-7) two-part psychological interview with Jeffrey Dahmer, revealing several fascinating new details; (8) two British cases on which the author was asked to consult; (9) investigation of a South African serial killer; (10) the Aum Shinri Kyo cult (sarin nerve gas terrorists) in Japan.
