For fans of Christopher Berry-Dee's Talking with Serial Killers series, this chilling new book explores the dark heart of Russia. For decades, it has been assumed that the United States of America was the serial killer capital of the world. Now, criminologists believe that Russia (and previously the Soviet Union) has been, secretly, the biggest home of serial killers for almost a century. In Serial Killers of Russia, bestselling true crime author Wensley Clarkson reveals the inside stories and gruesome details behind the country's most notorious and previously unknown murderers. Using information from a vast range of new and archive sources, Clarkson tells stories of the dangerous, the devious and the truly shocking, and tackles why the nation has become a breeding ground for humanity's most evil. These are the most horrifying cases from the darkest corners of Russia.

“Maar, Xander, wat het by die koshuis gebeur? Ons weet jy was by die koshuis. Wat het presies gebeur daar? Vertel vir my. Jy kan maar met my gesels, Xander… Praat met my, ou seun, moenie slaap nie. Wat het gebeur by die koshuis? Ek weet jy wil nie daaroor praat nie, maar jy moet. Wat het gebeur by die koshuis, Xander?”
En toe is dit asof die damwal meegee.
Die moord op twee pragmeisies in hul skoolkoskuis vroeg op 'n wintersoggend in 2018 het die hegte boeregemeenskap van Stella in Noordwes onherroeplik getraumatiseer. Die ysingwekkende feite van die saak het trouens die hele Suid-Afrika geruk. Xander Bylsma (19), 'n aantreklike boerseun van die omgewing, is aangekla van die wrede wurgmoorde op die sprankelende Sharnelle Hough en Marna Engelbrecht, 'n skrander donkerkop. Watter intriges het tot die moord gelei? En hoe leef die gesinne van drie belowende en geliefde jong mense met die gevolge van 'n grudaad in 'n gemeenskap van vervlegte lewens? Susan Cilliers, skrywer van die topverkoper Huis van Gruwels, skryf indringend oor die vrae wat ná die hofsaak onbeantwoord bly, oor lewens vernietig in hul fleur en oor die moontlikheid van berusting en vergifnis.

How do you identify a serial killer?
What are the tell-tale signs of guilt?
Can we now solve the unsolvable?
Since even before the first season of Silent Witness in 1996, forensic science has played an increasingly important role in the investigation of violent crimes.
With a boom in cold-blooded cases throughout the 1980s, police began to rely on DNA evidence to help them find perpetrators and since then forensic science has taken off as a powerful tool in solving murders. Bestselling true-crime author Wensley Clarkson takes us beyond the headlines to examine the real-life stories where forensics have played a crucial role. He speaks to experts who have worked on the most gruesome, most chilling and most shocking crime scenes and explains how notorious criminal cases from across the world were solved.
And he shows how the silent witness is often the one who screams the loudest.

Somehow it seems as if the odds were against them. Were they destined to become killers of their own flesh and blood? What drives a young person to kill family members? Why do they commit such violent and heartless acts? Lives marred by psychological abuse, a lack of attachment with parents, neglect, difficulties growing up, complex circumstances, difficulty making friends, shattered intergenerational relationships, the author identifies what may have given rise to the events in the lives of these cases.
By making extensive use of in-depth case studies, based on interviews with various stakeholders, court and psychological records, visits to incarceration facilities, the author uses the lens of phenomenology to delve into the psyche of these young people in their teens and early twenties who committed recent murders that captured the attention of the southern African public.

'I wanted to write this book before I forgot the finer details. As strange as that may sound, you can forget these things, and it is probably healthier to do so. You can visit the depths of hell - just don't hang around there for too long.' - Gérard Labuschagne

In this gripping - and sometimes terrifying - account, former South African Police Service (SAPS) head profiler Dr Gérard Labuschagne, successor to the legendary Micki Pistorius, recalls some of the 110 murder series and countless other bizarre crimes he analysed during his career. An expert on serial murder and rape cases, Labuschagne saw it all in his fourteen and a half years in the SAPS. He walks the reader through the first crime scene he ever attended, his arrest of the Muldersdrift serial rapist, his experience as the head of the task team mandated to catch the Quarry serial murderer, his involvement with the Brighton Beach axe murders, and more. Despite often being stymied by a lack of resources, office politics and political interference, Labuschagne and his team were always determined to get their man - or woman, as in the Womb Raider case.

The Profiler Diaries is a fascinating - and often hair-raising - glimpse into what it was like to be a profiler in the world's busiest profiling unit.

'n Intieme blik op bendegeweld - van dié wat die geweld gepleeg het sowel as dié wat onskuldig is. Carla van der Spuy praat met mense van 'n gangster wat “nie genoeg vingers en tone het” om te sê hoeveel mense hy gedood het nie tot 'n ma wie se kind sonder waarskuwing aangeval was. Sy laat toe dat mense in hul eie woorde 'n beeld skep van die hoop en wanhoop, onsekerheid en vasberadenheid wat deel is van lewe tussen gangsters.
Met hierdie boek is daar insig tot hoe die gangs ledes kry, sowel as hoe mense probeer om weg te breek daarvan. Daar is insig vanaf 'n polisielid en van die groep wat 'n veel beter rehabilitasiesyfer het as die tronk - want daar is steeds hoop. Hier lê 'n gemeenskap sy hart bloot.

The legendary FBI criminal profiler and international bestselling author of Mindhunter and The Killer Across the Table returns with this timely, relevant book that goes to the heart of extremism and domestic terrorism, examining in-depth his chilling pursuit of, and eventual prison confrontation with Joseph Paul Franklin, a White Nationalist serial killer and one of the most disturbing psychopaths he has ever encountered. Worshippers stream out of an Midwestern synagogue after sabbath services, unaware that only a hundred yards away, an expert marksman and avowed racist, antisemite and member of the Ku Klux Klan, patiently awaits, his hunting rifle at the ready. The October 8, 1977 shooting was a forerunner to the tragedies and divisiveness that plague us today. John Douglas, the FBI's pioneering, first full-time criminal profiler, hunted the shooter-a white supremacist named Joseph Paul Franklin, whose Nazi-inspired beliefs propelled a three-year reign of terror across the United States, targeting African Americans, Jews, and interracial couples. In addition, Franklin bombed the home of Jewish leader Morris Amitay, shot and paralyzed Hustler magazine publisher Larry Flynt, and seriously wounded civil rights leader Vernon Jordan. The fugitive supported his murderous spree robbing banks in five states, from Georgia to Ohio. Douglas and his writing partner Mark Olshaker return to this disturbing case that reached the highest levels of the Bureau, which was fearful Franklin would become a presidential assassin-and haunted him for years to come as the threat of copycat domestic terrorist killers increasingly became a reality. Detailing the dogged pursuit of Franklin that employed profiling, psychology and meticulous detective work, Douglas and Olshaker relate how the case was a make-or-break test for the still-experimental behavioral science unit and revealed a new type of, determined, mission-driven serial killer whose only motivation was hate. A riveting, cautionary tale rooted in history that continues to echo today, The Killer's Shadow is a terrifying and essential exploration of the criminal personality in the vile grip of extremism and what happens when rage-filled speech evolves into deadly action and hatred of the 'other' is allowed full reign. The Killer's Shadow includes an 8-page color photo insert.

You have to remember, he reminded me, that Harvard is older than the U.S. government. You have to remember because Harvard doesn't let you forget.
1969: the height of counterculture and the year universities would seek to curb the unruly spectacle of student protest; the winter that Harvard University would begin the tumultuous process of merging with Radcliffe, its all-female sister school; and the year that Jane Britton, an ambitious 23-year-old graduate student in Harvard's Anthropology Department and daughter of Radcliffe Vice President J. Boyd Britton, would be found bludgeoned to death in her Cambridge, Massachusetts apartment.
Forty years later, Becky Cooper, a curious undergrad, will hear the first whispers of the story. In the first telling the body was nameless. The story was this: a Harvard student had had an affair with her professor, and the professor had murdered her in the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology because she'd threatened to talk about the affair. Though the rumour proves false, the story that unfolds, one that Cooper will follow for ten years, is even more complex: a tale of gender inequality in academia, a 'cowboy culture' among empowered male elites, the silencing effect of institutions, and our compulsion to rewrite the stories of female victims.
WE KEEP THE DEAD CLOSE is a memoir of mirrors, misogyny and murder. It is at once a rumination on the violence and oppression that rules our revered institutions, a ghost story reflecting one young woman's past onto another's present, and a love story for a girl who was lost to history.

***WINNER OF THE GOLD DAGGER AWARD FOR CRIME NON-FICTION***
Dennis Nilsen, who died in May 2018, murdered at least 15 people before his arrest in 1983. This groundbreaking criminal study of his killings was written with Nilsen's full cooperation, resulting in a fascinating - and horrifying - portrait of the man who worshipped death. In February 1983, residents of Muswell Hill had been plagued by blocked drains.
When a plumber was called to investigate, he discovered a large blockage of biological material. To his horror, it appeared to be formed of human flesh and bones. The next day, resident Dennis Nilsen was arrested. 'Are we talking about one body or two?' a detective asked. Nilsen replied 'Fifteen or sixteen, since 1978. I'll tell you everything.' Within days he had confessed to fifteen gruesome murders over a period of four years. His victims, mostly young gay men at a time when society cared little for them, had never been missed. Brian Masters, with Nilsen's full cooperation, has produced a unique study of a murderer's mind, essential reading for true crime aficionados.

'Killing For Company must stand as one of the most remarkable and accurate accounts ever written of the singular relationship between a mass murderer and a society. Brian Masters]has managed, God knows how, to treat his material with such objectivity and restraint that what we have is not a penny dreadful from the Hammer House of Horror, but a bloody masterpiece.' BERYL BAINBRIDGE
