The book contains details on various murders and true crime, including encyclopedic information on over 100 serial killers who were active in 1996 alone. There are also another 200 events that have been added to the 1996 timeline for reference and cultural significance.

It's not only serial killers that infested 1996 like a plague. You'll also find snippets and facts on unsolved murders, cold cases, mysterious disappearances, mass murders, spree killers, conspiracies, and the last execution by hanging in the United States.

If 1978 was a masterpiece of murder, and 1987 was its big brother, then 1996 is the huge bombastic ending the trilogy deserves.
