Serial Killers of the '80s

Stories Behind a Decadent Decade of Death

by Jane Fritsch
OVERVIEW
The 1980s were a time of notorious serial killers—Jeffrey Dahmer, Aileen Wuornos, Samuel Little—but also of advances in forensics that helped lead to their capture.
The serial killer became part of our common cultural consciousness in the 1970s and, in the decade that followed, the FBI confronted even more incomprehensible crimes and their perpetrators. This engrossing collection of illustrated true-crime profiles details the unthinkable exploits of a rogue’s gallery that includes—in addition to Jeffrey Dahmer, Aileen Wuornos, and Gary Ridgway—Samuel Little and Joseph James DeAngelo, serial murderers whose criminal legacies are still making headlines today.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR(S)
