Description


Spine-chilling tales of the ultimate evil deeds!

Murders have long made headlines, but only those with the most heartless betrayals, twisted lies, and gruesome crime scenes have earned a place in infamy. The Killer Book of Infamous Murders takes you behind the crime scene tape and into the heart of notorious and remorseless massacres.

Uncover fascinating facts about killers' dark pasts, pent-up rage, and what finally caused them to snap—leading them to commit some of the world's most shocking crimes, including:

  • Leopold and Loeb's "perfect crime": the kidnapping and slaying of fourteen-year-old Bobby Franks
  • The bloody shootings of Alan and Diane Johnson, killed by their sixteen-year-old daughter
  • The cold-blooded murder of the Clutter family
  • The puzzling and controversial murder of Marilyn Sheppard

And much more…

Bury yourself in these edge-of-your-seat tales, read chilling quotes and courtroom transcripts, and test your crime IQ with trivia. You'll shudder in horrified delight—and you just might need to sleep with the lights on.
