Abstract:

Popular culture would have us believe that serial killers are an obvious threat to the public, a deformed creature that snarls, drools and hides in the shadows. In reality the serial killer is less like the maniacally out-of-control character of Mr Hyde and more like the subdued Dr Jekyll, a human being with a family, a job, and ambitions. River of Blood exposes the ordinariness of the serial killer, showing how the killer blends into society, successfully avoiding the stereotype assigned to the genre.
