Killing For Sport

Killing for Sport: Inside the Minds of Serial Killers

Killing For Sport is the most valuable insight into the minds of serial killers that you will ever read. While other profilers tend to conceal the clear facts behind complex technical language and psychobabble, Pat Brown actually tells it like it is. Killing For Sport will intrigue you with its honest portrayal of the predator next door: how he hunts for his victims, why he likes to torture them, where he tends to stash their bodies and more. 
Movies such as The Silence of the Lambs, Se7en, American Psycho and many others have created myths about serial killers that need to be dispelled. If you think that most serial killers are eccentric, white, male intellectuals like Hannibal Lecter, then you had better read Killing For Sport to learn the truth. 

The more our society is informed about these predators and what really goes on in their minds, the more equipped we will be to protect ourselves from them. With the same dark wit that gets people who work with the criminally insane through their work day, Brown speaks frankly about the monsters among us who kill for sport.

Rope: The Twisted Life and Crimes of Harvey 


JOURNEY TO THE KILLING GROUND: It was an age of innocence -- an era of carhops, poodle skirts, and hula hoops. It was also a time of terror. In 1958, a man named Harvey Glatman sped along the Santa Ana freeway out of L.A., headed to the desert with his "date" huddled in the passenger seat beside him. In his pockets Harvey had a gun and a length of rope. Drunk on power, arousal, and rage, Harvey also had a plan. And beneath the desert stars, by the light of the moon, he carried out his ordeal of unimaginable cruelty -- using his body, a camera, and his rope....

Months later, after one of his inhuman attacks went awry, Harvey's torture killings were described to a shocked and silent California courtroom. For decades, these infamous deeds would inspire television and movie plots. But until now, there has been no definitive account of the forces that drove one of America's most legendary serial killers. And never before has it been explained why, for Harvey Glatman, his crimes weren't about killing, raping, and torturing at all -- they were all about the rope.
