Mary Flora Bell: The Horrific True Story Behind An Innocent Girl Serial Killer (Real Crime By Real Killers) (Volume 5)
What can drive a young and seemingly innocent child to kill? Murder is horrible enough when perpetrated by adults, and yet the concept takes on a whole new level of chilling morbidity when a murderer is revealed to be a young boy or girl. Is it the result of severe trauma manifesting itself in the most macabre of ways? Is it the progeny of some severe mental disorder? Or were they influenced by the actions of the people they grew up with? Most of the time, the answers to such a question are simple, but no less horrific. Eleven-year-old Mary Flora Bell was tried and found guilty in 1968 for the coldhearted murders of two very young boys – crimes which she committed without any hint of remorse. After her past and motives have been examined, hindsight asks the pressing question: Was she a victim in as much as she was a killer? From the details of her murders to the dark childhood she suffered, Mary Flora Bell’s short but horrific time as a child serial killer will be analyzed in detail within Mary Flora Bell: The Horrific True Story Behind An Innocent Girl Serial Killer. Get your copy now and learn the tragic nature of these details.

Jeffrey Dahmer: The Gruesome True Story of a Hungry Cannibalistic Rapist and Necrophiliac Serial Killer

Cannibal. Necrophiliac. Kidnapper. Killer.
The stories of serial killers often begin with terrible upbringings and sad events of trauma, but not all have such unfortunate beginnings. Some simply develop their evil on their own and become tainted without anyone realizing it.
Jeffrey Dahmer was a man described by his own father as the result of a child becoming lost in the maelstrom while nobody paid attention, of a child who was strange and apathetic but who nobody bothered to ask why…
…The results were catastrophic.
Seventeen men lost their lives and were defiled even after death because of the desires of a neglected young boy who just wanted to fulfill his needs. The following is the tale of said child, the same young man who grew up to become the infamous Milwaukee Cannibal, one of the worst serial killers in humanity’s history.

Jeffrey Dahmer: The Gruesome True Story of a Hungry Cannibalistic Rapist and Necrophiliac Serial Killer (Vol 3) is a book that recounts the tale of the Milwaukee Cannibal, a man capable of committing the most truly degrading acts on his victims before and even after death; a man who to his last days — and long after — still haunts the city of Milwaukee with the memories of his horrific murders.
Be warned, reader, you aren’t just about to read about Jeffrey Dahmer and his acts.
You are about to walk into his very mind.

Edmund Kemper: The True Story of The Brutal Co-ed Butcher (Real Crime by Real Killers) (Volume 2)

Real Crime by Real Killers

A series where we explore how normal individuals turned their darkest fantasies into a reality.

Edmund Emil Kemper III achieved notoriety as a serial killer when he took the lives of 10 people between August 27, 1964, and April 21, 1973. His victims included his adoptive grandparents, six co-eds from the University of Santa Cruz, his mother, and his mother's friend.  This book explored the life of Kemper from his abusive childhood to his sentencing in November 1973.

The horror of Kemper's actions go beyond the killing of his victims; it was what he did with his victims' bodies after killing them. Necrophilia, cannibalism, and dismemberment were all part his routine in his attempts to satiate his morbid desires.  Just as terrifying as his dark fantasies were his ability to appear and function as an average person, allowing him to avoid raising suspicion in those he interacted with, including law enforcement.  

Contrary to the myth that serial killers kill indiscriminately, Kemper’s killing spree may have been rooted in the hatred that he felt for his mother. In an interview after his capture,  he admitted that he was intentionally developing his killing skills with each co-ed that he killed. He was training for the ultimate murder, which was the killing of his mother. 

From beginning to end, the book provides insights to why Kemper became a serial killer as well his mindset behind the killings.

One man’s Robert Berdella is another’s Kansas City Butcher.

We may not always see what truly hides within the minds and hearts of certain people, and where we believe is a good, pure individual, lays a terrible murderer capable of the most horrible acts.

Robert Berdella: The True Story of a Man Who Turned His Darkest Fantasies Into a Reality is a book that recounts the tale of the Kansas City Butcher, a man capable of committing the most truly degrading acts on his victims, a monster who will never be forgotten by the families of those young men whose lives he destroyed. Be warned, reader, you aren’t just about to read about Bob Berdella and his acts. You are about to walk into his very mind.

Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka: The Horrific True Story Behind Canada's Ken and Barbie Killers (Real Crime By Real Killers) (Volume 7)
Abduction. Rape. Murder.
Multiple assaults. Three dead teenage girls.
A pair of criminals. But which one was the killer?

This graphic account of convicted killers, Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka, shows that in some relationships, neither party is the “better half.” Both halves of this Canadian couple add up to one evil story.

Dubbed the “Ken and Barbie Killers” by the media, Paul and Karla's pink dream house became a place of nightmares.

Get a copy today and discover the shocking confession that causes their world to fall apart like a house of cards and reveals that this “perfect couple” is in fact perfectly evil.

True Crime Stories Volume 1: 12 Terrifying True Crime Murder Cases (List of Twelve)

You are about to witness how 12 deranged individuals turned their darkest fantasies into a reality!

What drives a mother to shoot her two daughters at the dinner table? Why would a petite woman shoot-up the grocery store where she worked and murder one of her co-workers? And why would an on-duty police officer commit three murders and an armed robbery?

List of Twelve Volume 1 examines these and other horrific crimes and delves deep into the grotesque thinking of the monstrous individuals who perpetrated them.

Twelve murders are profiled, and each profile offers a personal background of the offender, a detailed description of the crime, the investigation that ensued and the eventual sentencing.

Included are profiles of Robert Beaver, an 18-year-old who massacred his entire family, and the bizarre life of Luke Magnotta, who videotaped himself stabbing a man to death with an ice pick and then mailed his body parts to political offices and schools.

Unlike other books on the subject, List of Twelve Volume 1 takes the reader right into the dark minds of the murderers, so you can better understand why they committed their crimes.

Read on if you dare. But be aware that you're about to witness their darkest fantasies...
