I'm looking for something on par with Silence of the Lambs or Red Dragon.

I would recommend Devil in the White City by Erik Larsen.

http://www.amazon.com/Devil-White-City-Madness-Changed/dp/0375725601

It's non-fiction and based on historical facts, but it's fascinating and reads like a murder thriller. Hannibal Lecter is neat and all, but this killer actually existed.

Check out some James Patterson books. Most (if not all) of his books featuring protagonist Alex Cross involve serial killers. It's not fancy writing, but it sure gets the job done.



Lloyd: When I met Mary, I got that old fashioned romantic feeling, where I'd do anything to bone her.
Harry: That's a special feeling.

The John Sandford Prey series is good. Usually it's more about the cops than the criminal, but I read one last year and had to read all the rest right after.

THIS 100%. Sandford is probably the only fiction writer whose entire works I have read. His new one, Buried Prey is coming next week, I believe. The Prey series is awesome as is the spinoff series with a cop named Virgil Flowers.

I'd also suggest the Alex Delaware series by Kellerman. Especially Monster for the serial killer aspect.

In True Blood, I think its called is a good book about a start off serial killer. Based on a true story about a family that is out of their minds. Ff the Zodiac book is half as good as the new movie it was based on is any good then I would recommend that as well.

Since you guys have given me plenty of suggestions, I'll give you a good one. By Reason of Insanity by Shane Stevens. Well developed killer and good cat and mouse with the police. And a great ending.

It is nice and Jae Lee's Inhumans was really good, but I'm still not touching these. Not because of Alan Moore, but because I don't care about the characters. I don't really think Watchmen was all that great to begin with, to tell the truth.
