I also learned that most of the serial killers tuned up killing people are mostly based on how they where brought up. Eventhough you are not a serial killer, it does not mean that your siblings are not because each individual perceives things differently. These are sometime of the questions that I like :- 1. Why do female Serial Killers Kill? 2. What Mental Illnesses are most commonly associated with serial killers? 3. What is one of the strangest motives you’ve ever Heart for serial muder? 4. If a serial killer targeted only perplexing who wanted to die, is that murder? 5. Why Has the Number of Serial Killers Declined Over the Last Thirty Years? 6. Why Are We So Fascinated by Serial Killers? 7. What is It Like to Grow Up with a Parent Who is a Serial Killer? The author did a very extentensive research regarding all the answers to the questions. The explaination was simple and easy to understand. The author covered serial killers from around the world. I love reading crime & psychological novels . This book is like an encyclopedia of serial killers! The part that I find most interesting in this book is Part 5 : Modern-Day Serial Killers. Trigger Warning : This book describes in detail how each murder happened and what happened to the serial killers when they were caught. I had to stop many time to rest my imagination.

    The author's expertise in the field of serial killers is quite extensive. The book was well organized with sections pertaining to certain types of questions. For example, one section might be about female serial killers. Another might be about young serial killers.

If you are interested in learning more about what makes serial killers tick and what we know, statistically about them, this is a fantastic read. The only reason I docked a star is that it can be a lot to digest. It is the nature of the subject matter that makes reading about these gruesome killings, one after another, difficult. It would have helped to have something to break up the violence, every 25 pages or so. I'm not sure what, maybe stories of how someone escaped and was able to move on, or something. Still, this book is full of interesting and valuable information, well presented. I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.

But the humour is very subtle, and the writing is genuinely respectful when it comes to discussing the victims of serial killers, and the information was never sensationalised. If you are into true crime, then you'll find this book fascinating. The book is divided into several thematic chapters, and each follows a question-and-answer structure -- adding up to 101 questions and answers in the whole book. Focused stories about specific serial killers are interspersed amongst the questions that provide more in-depth insights. Johnston is a forensic psychologist and has a very deep knowledge and lots of experience which shows throughout. This is a fascinating, informative, and riveting read. True crime fan?

    I'm fascinated by true crime and like many have a morbid obsession with serial killers and why they do what they do. I found this book to be a great introduction to serial killers with some fascinating information. The author referenced really well known cases such as the likes of Ted Bundy, Ed Kempner and the Golden State Killer but also included cases I've never heard of in countries such as India, Pakistan and China etc. I loved how it was laid out with a nice clear format of question and a suc I'm fascinated by true crime and like many have a morbid obsession with serial killers and why they do what they do.

I also enjoyed that the author didn't profess to know all the answers, which is something that has annoyed me when I've read other similar books. A fantastic starting point for anyone with an interest in true crime or the minds of serial killers.

    A fantastic amount of serial killer information (statistics, demographics & definitions), both genders, & from all over the world. I do not receive any type of compensation for reading & reviewing free books from publishers & authors. Therefore, I am under no obligation to write a positive review, only an honest one.

I do not receive any type of compensation for reading & reviewing free books from publishers & authors. Therefore, I am under no obligation to write a positive review, only an honest one. Warning: This book contains descriptive accounts of extremely graphic adult content, violence, murder, or expletive language &/or uncensored sexually explicit material (Lesbian, Gay, incest, pedophile, rape, sodomy, cannibalism, necrophile, mutilation, minor/adult verbal, psychological, emotional, physical & sexual abuse, prostitution) which is only suitable for mature readers. It may be offensive or have potential adverse psychological effects on the reader. If you are especially sensitive to this type of material, it is strongly advised not to read any further. An awesome book cover, great font & writing style. A very professionally written serial killer (individual sections of criminal short stories) book. It was quite easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were several grammar/typo errors, but no repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & an enormous description list of unique characters, settings, facts etc. to keep track of. This could also make another great serial killer’s movie, a classroom PP presentation, or better yet a paid-per-view mini-TV series or even a documentary (Crime Museum; True Crime; American Crime Story; Investigative Discovery. A person with a PhD should not make any APA mistakes. I only had an BS & MSW, & my Dr./Professors would have made me rewrite my papers if they were similar to yours. That said I will only rate it at 3/5 stars. Thank you for the free author; Wild Blue Press; BookSirens; PDF book Tony Parsons MSW (Washburn)

    This book has a wealth of information about... you guessed it: serial killers. The cover promisses 101 questions, but the author answers a few more along the way. The Q&A are interchanged with descriptions of cases and other interesting matters. The short bits make it easy to read. The questions cover all the bases and after reading this book I feel like I have a better understanding about the current state of the science. It helps that the science is referenced in the back of the book. Quite oft This book has a wealth of information about... you guessed it: serial killers. The cover promisses 101 questions, but the author answers a few more along the way. The Q&A are interchanged with descriptions of cases and other interesting matters. The short bits make it easy to read. The questions cover all the bases and after reading this book I feel like I have a better understanding about the current state of the science. It helps that the science is referenced in the back of the book. Quite often the answers were more extensive than the question warrented. A ‘true’ true crime afasionado will probably have already heard about some or most of the cases mentioned. At the same time this book can be a starting point to dive in deeper into the disturbing world of serial killers. Personally I’m not that the biggest true crime fan, because I often find it hard to stomach. The author does a good job of sticking to the facts which helps with keeping the nightmares at bay. Still, I would not suggest this book as a nighttime read. Trust me, I’ve tried to. It seems some killers and cases are mentioned more than once, often times without a reference to the other mentions. It would be nice if there was an index for that. It would also have been awesome to have a list of the 101 questions. At the same time I feel the experience of the book is better when reading it front to back instead of cherry picking questions. I think this book differs from other true crime books by focussing on the information surrounding serial killers and not so much on the specific cases. It gives an overview of the serial killer landscape by diving into different themes. If you’re interested in serial killers and a different approach to the subject, I would definitely give this book a chance.

It is fascinating book to read and I am now even more interested and intrigued on the human behaviour of serial killers after reading this book. As we progress and move forward with technology and improved DNA, and the good versus evil against violent crimes will numbers go down or will the psychopath’s, sociopaths, and narcistic ways just learn more different cunning ways to escape justice and bring mayhem to our city’s, and towns all over the world. Remember to never forget their victims and family’s as they are the true victims as their suffering never ends. This book is a must for Physiatrists, Phycologists, Police, Serial killer sleuths who help solve crimes, and anyone whose nature is to read about Serial killers and wish to learn more.

    I think Joni Johnston has covered everything any true crime fan would want to know about serial killers. She even as a chapter on friends families and fans of serial killers. I think why this book is so well written and covers almost anything you could want to know about serial killers is because she herself has wondered the same questions.

    I received an ARC from Book Sirens in exchange for an honest review. This was a fast-paced book packed with a lot of research and knowledge about serial killers. I love reading about the psychology behind why others kill - what drives them? This book felt like it was written for me to answer all of my own personal questions about serial killers. If you like to learn about serial killers, give this book a shot. It was very informative, yet surprisingly easy to comprehend for the layperson.

    This was a quick read with minimal information provided to answer the 101 questions alluded to in the title of this book. Most cases referenced were well-known, mainstream media serial killer crimes so there wasn't much new or unique information contained in this book for me. If you are a new true-crime fan you will most likely learn something new. The sentences were constructed simply, as if the readers of the material would be 3rd or 4th grade level readers.

    ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Thank you to @booksirens and @jonijohnston for giving me the opportunity to read this advanced copy of the book for a voluntary review. What a great read for true crime fans. 101 questions I’m sure we’ve all wondered about. Covers killers from all around the world and from years gone by up until most recent times. Left me wanting to know more about some of the less known killers stories and gave me new insights into some of the ones I’d already heard about! Interesting read! Thank you

    I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway. I am a trivia lover. This is basically a whole book of serial killer trivia! I enjoyed it a lot and can see myself referring back to it in the future. I had fun telling my friends about it and especially the part that let me tease my friend that lives in London, Ontario about it being the serial killer capital of Canada.

    I felt this book was a thoughtful and well researched book which delved into the questions of why people kill and especially why people become serial killers. I felt it was very insightful or as much as it could have been based on the writers experience and training. A very good read.
