It's a creatively (small-pressedly) written documentary about 15 serial killers, which include regulars like Manson and Gacy, but also Henry Kissinger. Themes address our tendency to label poverty-stricken mass murderers "serial killers" while awarding rich, powerful mass murderers Nobel Peace Prizes; society's implicit guilt in serial killings by treating serial killers as entertainmet; our craptacular justice system; and the unreliable, gossipy nature of documentaries, masked as factual accounts.

The book relies a lot on the reader already having a fair amount of knowledge about each of the serial killers, so read up before reading.
