Top ten books about serial killers

Laura McHugh's debut novel is The Weight Of Blood. One of her ten favorite books about serial killers, as shared at the Daily Express:
RED DRAGON by Thomas Harris

Harris does an incredible job of developing his serial-killer characters and making them deeply horrifying, and “The Tooth Fairy” in this novel is one of his best. Rarely have I felt so intimately acquainted with a sadistic killer.
Read about the other books on the list.

Red Dragon also appears Kimberly Turner's list of the ten most disturbing sociopaths, John Mullan's lists of ten of the best dragons in literature and ten of the best tattoos in literature, and among the Telegraph's 110 best books; Andre Gross says "it should be taught as [a text] in Thriller 101."
