Michael & C.L. Kelleher Need To Do More Research 5 avril 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Poche
Having made a study of criminology for many years now, I was very dissapointed in "Murder Most Rare". While the authors have listed many resources, I find it hard to believe that they ever actually read or studied any of them. As my arguments against the author's statements are many, I will limit myself to three:
1. Ethnic Cleansing (Genocide) is NOT serial murder. (p. 2 & 3 the authors claim that the Holocaust was a case of serial murder).
2. Sexual Homicide (whether serial or not) is committed for the sole purpose of sexual gratification. To claim that a killer who murders for profit is a sexual predator merely because she made her living as a prostitute is sadly erroneous. (see Aileen Wuornos pp. 108 -120).
3. Steven Parent (a victim of the Manson clan) was NOT a guest of Sharon Tate (as claimed on p.224), but rather a guest of the young man (caretaker) who lived in the guesthouse behind the main house.
Frankly, this book fails as a creditable study of serial murder, and should be given a wide berth by serious readers.

Error-ridden book 14 février 1999
Par Joan E. Wood, M.D. - Publié sur
Format: Relié
This book could have been an excellent resouce for those interested in serial female killers, a subject that has been poorly covered prior to this time. However, I have personal experience as a forensic pathologist in two of the cases in the book. In one case involving a nurse murderer, the authors erroneously described her murders as occurring in a hospital, when, in fact, the deaths occurred in a nursing home.They also incorrectly documented the time line of events. Further, they wrongly listed the number of deaths she was charged with, and to which she pleaded guilty, as being one when it was in fact four! They ignored the count of attempted murder to which she also pleaded guilty. In the Aileen Wuornos case, they had locations wrong, listing the wrong interstate more than once in indicating where she had encountered her victims.
This type of poor research, leaving the reader with wrong answers, is a disservice to the attempt to correctly document these types of crimes. Finally I am very disappointed as, when I find a book where I know there are mistakes in cases with which I was intimately involved, I have to wonder just how many others with which I am not familiar have suffered the same fate. A book like this should be very carefully written and documented. Sadly, this one was not!

A complete waste of my time. 12 octobre 2000
Par J. M. Yarbrough - Publié sur
Format: Poche
The book reads like a badly-written term paper. The cases are presented in a summarized format, lacking the definite details to merit the "shocking facts" and "grisly details" hype on the back of the book. Although I applaud the writer(s) for doing research in a little known area about female killers, I felt the book over-romanticized their images to the extent that it was unnecessarily dramatic and repetitive. This is one small description of the "Angel of Death" from page 89:
"Like Azrael, she has the outward appearance of a caring benefactor, however, like that messenger from God, she carries a weapon of lethal destruction at her side and is willing to preside over the question of life or death for even the most innocent of charges."
The overwhelming majority of their notes from each chapter are derived from the Internet and the same CD-ROM. There is no evidence of first or second hand experience which significantly lowers their credibility because it seems like one big term paper based on resources from the internet and a few other books that can be found in the true crime section.
Think of it as "Real TV" or "Cops" with cheesy, over-the-top narration and you get the idea.

Good book, breaks the rules 9 mai 2000
Par FGarrett - Publié sur
Format: Poche
This is a well written, fascinating book. It re-writes some of the traditional rules of how to define serial murder. Obviously, this has upset some folks. However, the logic of the book is not flawed. Perhaps its time to look at serial murder in a different, more comprehensive way rather than accepting the definitions of individuals/organizations who would minimize this type of crime.

Bland, and redundant 22 août 2002
Par AlleyCat Advocat - Publié sur
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
This book really doesnt go in depth into any of the cases, just gives a brief summation and rating as to the profile of the killers. I want something with more grit and substance. If you are merely into skimming the subject, then this is the book for you.
