When a Serial Killer is active in a community it is extremely scary for everyone. This book focuses on Serial Killers who have been captured and some of the most notorious and ruthless killers in history.

Serial killers stay close to home and their victims are random. Dennis Rader found all his victims in Kansas not far from the Wichita home he shared with his wife and two kids. Rader, the president of his local church, knocked on his victim's doors and they simply let him in. John Wayne Gacy, met many of his 33 victims, all young men and boys, at charity events where he appeared dressed a clown. After luring them to his house and murdering them he stuffed them under his Cook County, Illinois home. Gary Leon Ridgway, the Green River Killer, was convicted of strangling 49 random women he met in Washington. He confessed to killing 71 but authorities believe the number of victims could be over 90. Jeffrey Dahmer of Milwaukee admitted to killing and cannibalizing 17 young men and boys before he was arrested.

Need a true crime hit? This should not disappoint serial-killer junkies but don't expect sensationalist accounts of these creeps. The victims are the most important and tragic figures in these cases and the author makes sure they are acknowledged with respect.

Case Closed

  • "As always, R.J. writes definitively and factually in "Case Closed: Serial Killers Captured." Reading this book, I was amazed at all of the "big-name" serial killers who have been caught. Sometimes we think more about those unsolved cases, but here, R.J. gives us a peek into the lives of serial killers ranging from Gacy to Bundy to the relatively recent discovery of the BTK killer's identity. This is great stuff -- insightful and well written." ~ Carl Hose, Author of Blood Legacy


    "RJ Parker has done it again! It is hard to keep my attention with true crime stories, but this author has no problem doing just that. This is the third book of his that I have read and I love them all. I thought I knew a lot of true crime stories but he keeps surprising me. His books are wonderful and I must go now, to start the next one. Keep up the good work!" ~ Lori Smith, Avid Reader


    "The serial killers that are in this book were the ones that left pain and fear in their wake. This book gives you just enough information on each one without going overboard on each one of them. If you ever wondered just what sentence Daumer or Gacey or any of the other received this book will tell you. Very interesting read." ~ Jennifer Thomas


    "Here's a chilling and engrossing collection of killers, presented with the no nonsense seriousness of Jack Webb in DRAGNET. Perfect for a True Grue Crime fix!" ~ David Bischoff, NY Bestselling Author
