Summary

A milkman shares a take-out supper with his cousin and then fatally stabs him.…A man breaks into a shelter for abused women and snuffs out the life of his wife who has taken refuge there.…A youth rapes and kills a woman on the landing of her apartment building.…The boyfriend of a single mother batters her eighteen-month-old daughter to death. . . .

In Men of Blood, Elliott Leyton, described by William Langley in the London Sunday Telegraph as “probably the world's most widely consulted expert on serial killing and a godhead of modern criminal psychology,” reviews a decade's worth of real murders and analyses their common features. Sometimes surprising, often shocking, always compelling, the result is an important addition to the literature of murder.
