Killer Among Us Hardcover
Killer Among Us: Public Reactions to Serial Murder
Joseph C. Fisher
Westport, CT: Praeger Publishers. 1997.
236pp. Illustrated, Bibliography, Index. [Partial Ripper Content]
ISBN: 0275955583

Casebook Review:

Joseph Fisher looks at several high and low profile serial murder cases including Wayne Williams, Jeffrey Dahmer, David Berkowitz, and Jack the Ripper from the perspective of the public. He attempts to demonstrate certain commonalities in how the public at large reacts to the discovery of a killer in their midst. The case studies provide fascinating insights into an aspect of serial killing that is not usually focused on which is the effect on the community and its' institutions. Recommended.
