Serial Killers of the '70s: Stories Behind a Notorious Decade of Death (Profiles in Crime)

Serial Killers of the '70s: Stories Behind a Notorious Decade of Death (Profiles in Crime)

List price: $17.95

Available: 40

A chilling lineup of notorious and lesser-known serial killers, from Ted Bundy to Ed Kemper.

When investigators discovered the first shallow graves of victims murdered by thirty-seven-year-old contractor Juan V. Corona in 1971, they had not reason to imagine that the second half of the twentieth century would become known as the "Golden Age of Serial Killers." As it turned out, brutal serial murders became, in many ways, as much a part of the legacy of the 1970s as disco, Watergate, and the oil crisis.

Compiled by former New York Times reporter Jane Fritsch, who covered John Wayne Gacy's trial for the Chicago Tribune, this collection tells the stories behind the headlines of that notorious decade's serial killers, from more obscure murderers - like Coral Eugen Watts, known as the mysterious Sunday Morning Slasher - to those whose nicknames have become part of the decade's cultural record, such as David Berkowitz, aka the Son of Sam.
