The Darker Side of Evil debunks the myth that all serial killers are White. The book highlights the lives of 10 of the most prolific serial killers in modern American history. The depravity of the despicable acts committed by these individuals beyond comprehension.
The Darker Side of Evil, also examines the media’s role in murderous careers of these men. Until the publication of this book, most of society had no clue of the existence of more than a few Black serial murderers. Society has entrusted the media to disseminate information in a timely and truthful fashion. Having been entrusted with the authority to decide what is and is not news, they have been unwilling to even acknowledge the existence of these predators. Having found the exploits of these killers “not newsworthy,” they have failed to provide adequate coverage of their crimes.As a result of this lack of coverage, any hope of a speedy capture dissipates. Furthermore potential victims fail to implement safeguard measures for themselves and their families which in turn results in a greater number of lost lives.
The Darker Side of Evil, takes the reader back to the first murderer to be labelled, “Serial Killer,” and the F.B.I. agent that originally coined the phrase. In short, the book reminds the reader that, “Depravity Knows No Color.”
