The Lone Killer - Mass murderers have existed since the beginning of recorded history. In some eras, they were kings, queens and princes: think of Vlad the Impaler, Catherine the Great or the mad Ottoman ruler Murad IV. Hideously cruel methods of torture and killing that we now consider completely inhumane were part of everyday life in many ages and civilisations, from the Aztecs and the Barbarians to early Polynesian cultures and medieval Europe. In modern times, state-sanctioned atrocities on grand scale have been committed, for example in Nazi Germany and, more recently, in Rwanda. However, the phenomenon of the serial killer, who generally works alone and in secret, usually killing victims one at a time, is a different one. These are the murderers that we find particularly disturbing, the ‘ordinary’ people who could be our next-door neighbours or office co-workers, the individuals who may have a troubled family history, but who, on the face of it, have no more reason to kill than the rest of us. These are the murderers who baffle and terrify us, precisely because they seem so ordinary and so much - on the surface - ‘just like us’. However when they are finally caught they are revealed to have tortured and killed a string of innocent victims, often in the most gruesome ways unimaginable.
