I, MONSTER: SERIAL KILLERS IN THEIR OWN CHILLING WORDS By Tom Philbin October 27, 2011

     Are you looking for a thoroughly terrifying Halloween read? Philbin’s book is it. No monsters of the imagination can compare to this group of maniacs who, through many years, have felt justified and productive in murdering. Some of these guys are long gone, like H.H. Holmes, whose acts were carried out in Chicago in 1893. Some are still behind bars. Some are famous, and others not as much. But the single thread tying them all together are their deeds. None of them are sorry for them, and most either still are, or died, very angry. One can’t say much about this selection that the author hasn’t.
     We can’t know who among us is a serial killer. Looking at their pictures in this book, it’s unlikely any of us could recognize these normal looking people to be monsters, so the question of how many more are out here among us keeps circling  the reader’s mind, over and over again. It doesn’t get any scarier than the reality exhibited so starkly in this powerful nonfiction work.
