"You've heard the myths about serial murder. All serial killers had horrific childhoods. They have an uncanny ability to elude the police. They prey on anyone who crosses their path. They're mutants from hell. Above all, they're not like us." "Those are the myths. In The Need to Kill, one of the field's leading researchers tells you who the serial killers really are. The reality may be even more frightening than the myths." "Drawing on 20+ years' research - including experience as a homicide investigator - Dr. Steven A. Egger brings new clarity to questions that are rarely answered accurately in the media."--Jacket.
