Acerca de


From Jack Henry Abbott, who stabbed a waiter through the heart for not allowing him to use the toilet, to the Zodiac, an unknown California serial killer who may have murdered as many as 37 people, this reference work details 280 of the most famous murder cases of the twentieth century. Each entry contains, when applicable, birth and death dates, aliases, occupation, location of the murders, weapons used, number of victims, and the time period when the killings occurred. Films, plays, television shows, videos and audio programs based on or inspired by the case are then cited, followed by a brief overview of the murder case and a bibliography of English-language works related to it.

From Library Journal:

Frasier, a reference librarian at Indiana University, has created a near-perfect reference source on murder. From this century (up to 1992), he has taken 280 of the most famous serial killers (both convicted and accused) and presented them in a thorough yet nonlurid fashion. Profiled here are both American and foreign murderers, many from earlier years who may not be familiar to readers. Each entry, which includes birth and death dates, aliases, location of the murders, weapons used, and number of victims, is prefaced with a list of movies or plays, if any, about the case and followed by an annotated (and opinionated) bibliography, so that a reader can cut through the mass of knockoffs and newspaper rehashes to good books about the case. An appendix lists cases by classification (e.g., "parricide"); an author and title index provides entry to the bibliographies; and a general index includes the movie titles (e.g., a reader looking for the case featured in the movie Killing in a Small Town is led directly to that of Candace Montgomery). Useful, entertaining, extremely well written, and meticulously researched and formatted, this book is essential for all true-crime and general reference collections.?Sally G.
