Psycho USA Summary Æ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free AMERICA’S MOST COLD BLOODED   In the horrifying annals of American crime the infamous names of brutal killers such as Bundy Dahmer Gacy and Berkowitz are writ large in the imaginations of a public both horrified and hypnotized by their monstrous murderous acts But for every celebrity psychopath who’s gotten ink for spilling blood there’s a bevy of all but forgotten homicidal fiends studding the bloody margins of US history The law gave them their just desserts but now the hugely acclaimed author of The Serial Killer Files and The Whole Death Catalog gives them their dark due in this absolutely riveting true crime treasury Among America’s most cold blooded you’ll meet This book was about the most twisted true crime book I have read in a long timeI didn t realize there were so many psychos back in the 19th century but after reading this book there were than I ever expected to be living in those days The author Harold Schechter delved long and deep into the past to find these crazy murderersAll these murderers were people I have never heard of before and it didn t matter if it was a man or a woman as both were the most cold hearted individuals to walk this earth In my opinion the men in this book that committed the crimes back in the 1800 s were worse than the famous killers that we know of today We thought that Bundy Dahmer and Gacy were twisted but after reading this book there were worse killers than them back in the old days The women were just as bad and it seems that the women loved to use arsenic and any kind of poison they could get their hands on to commit their crimes The men loved to use axes and hatchets to chop up their victims This book is not for the faint of heart as the author goes into descriptive detail about the murders and it was one of the most detailed versions of murders that I have read in a very long timeI found myself through some of the stories getting ueasy as the information of the murders were so detailed that I could imagine the pain and agony of the victims That is saying a lot for me as I consider myself a hardened horror fan and normally I don t get ueasy reading about twisted psychos But with this book it was a different This is no walk in the park book It is a ride into hell Four stars for this one
