Integrating research from psychology, sociology, criminology, and psychoanalysis, this work examines the role of dangerous sexual deviance in the development of the lust killer. Chapters are divided into sections on theory of sexual homicide and legal issues, paraphilias and lust murders, and media influence and edgework. Some areas discussed include various models to explain serial killing, necrophilia, and the portrayal of extreme crime by the media.
