Ten top 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:
THE LOVELY BONES by Alice Sebold

I was fascinated with Sebold’s fresh and ingenious approach of having teen murder victim, Susie, narrate from the afterlife.

A thoroughly heart-wrenching portrait of a life cut short and the lasting effects on the loved ones left behind, the novel is also incredibly suspenseful as Susie watches from above, unable to protect the living from her prolific killer.
Read about another book on the list.

The Lovely Bones is one of Tamzin Outhwaite's six best books.
