Another popular true crime Book on Canterbury Tales Bookshop shelves is Sadistic Killers by acclaimed crime writer Carol Anne Davis.
Carol Anne explores the minds of sadistic killers, their childhoods & disfunctional families, their growing pathology and horrific crimes, knowing what some of these killers endured doesn’t even begin to excuse their crimes but it does explain them.
Davis delineates the different subgroups of sadists for example, those who kill indiscriminately in Britain, the US and Australia.
There are also chapters on,
Female sadists, who tend to be overlooked by the media.
Consensual sadomasochism – including a rare interview with a well-known female practitioner, Lynn Paula Russell.
Input from a psychologist who has helped rehabilitate some of Britain’s most violent men.
Sadistic Killers is a compelling look at the formative influences of a sadist and at his or her crimes. Unflinching in detail but never gratuitous, this is an informative read with a hopeful ending.
