Everyone seems fascinated by the serial killer, who is popularized in novels, television, and film. What makes this tiny number of killers unique? What features do they have in common? What is the truth vs. fiction? Find out by exploring the psychological evidence and the information gleaned about these killers by psychologists and FBI profiles. Examine the common links across childhood, genetic and biological factors.
