I personally prefer watching documentaries, like those on A&E, and films based on the true events, such as Dahmer, Gacy, S.O.S., Monster, etc.

There's a ton of fictional ones. It's finding good ones that's hard. Check the Top 10 best sellers list, chances are there are two on there right now. The genre they're usually listed under is "Thriller".

I know. I try to avoid top ten sellers, hell, top fifty sellers, if you want to get right down to it, I probably avoid top one-hundred sellers. I've never liked reading mainstream books, I always dig around and find the obscure shit. I don't know why, either.

Do a google for the "Bloody Cobbler"

Not really a SERIAL killer book, but Truman Capote's "In Cold Blood."
