This bundle offers books five and six in one convenient file, with over 100,000 words of reading. In STALKING, when two teenage girls turn up dead in different states, each strangled, and each killed within days of each other—the FBI calls in its brilliant new agent, 22 year old Riley Paige, to stop the serial killer before he strikes again. Riley, fresh out of the academy and off her last case, is settling into FBI life and to her new partnership with her mentor, Jake. She is starting to feel confident in her abilities—when this new case lands. It is a case that shocks her, that stumps her, and that rocks her self confidence to its very core. What do these two girls have in common? Why can’t she figure it out? Is this killer as diabolical as she suspects? The only way to find out is for Riley to enter the dark canals of the killer’s mind, to stare into the precipice of darkness—and to hope that it doesn’t swallow her alive. In KILLING, when victims are found killed by electrocution, it is up to the FBI’s brilliant new agent, Riley Paige, 22, to enter a serial killer’s warped mind and stop him before he can claim any more victims. Riley, fresh out of the academy and off her last case, is settling into FBI life when a shocking twist threatens her partnership with her mentor, Jake, and undermines everything she thought she knew. Can Riley keep her personal life under control while trying to catch a diabolical killer at the same time? Dark psychological thrillers with heart-pounding suspense, the Riley Paige mysteries are a riveting new series—with a beloved new character—that will leave you turning pages late into the night.
A chilling investigation into the deviant mind, “so powerful and provocative, you cannot put it down” (Rita Cosby, New York Times–bestselling author). We know the names: Ted Bundy, Ed Gein, Jeffrey Dahmer, John Wayne Gacy, among them—serial killers transformed by the media into ghoulish celebrities. And their iconic fictional counterparts—from Norman Bates to Hannibal Lecter to Dexter—reveal just how eager we are to watch a psychopath in action. But why? Are we curious about the root of their terrifying compulsions? Or it is something more? Why We Love Serial Killers “attempts to solve some of these mysteries . . . What made serial killers this way? Why did they kill, and why did they do it so gruesomely? How are they different from us? (Please let them be different from us)” (The Atlantic). In exploring our appetite for the macabre, criminology professor Dr. Scott Bonn also provides a unique view into the world of serial killers, having corresponded with two of the most notorious examples: David Berkowitz, a.k.a. Son of Sam, and the BTK Killer, Dennis Rader. In addition, Bonn examines the criminal profiling techniques used to identify serial predators, the charisma of the sociopath, the rise in “murderabilia” collecting, and how and why these killers often become pop-culture icons, escalating both our fears and our fascination. The result is “powerful and a must-read . . . Insightful, compelling, and an excellent source of myth-busting information for laymen and professionals alike” (Burl Barer, Edgar Award–winning author of The Saint).

For two years Rajindra Puri lived and hunted with the Penan Benalui people in the rainforest of eastern Borneo in Indonesia. Here he reports on Penan hunting techniques, the knowledge required to be a successful hunter, and the significance of hunting for Penan communities. A hunt offers the opportunity for younger Penan to learn crucial survival skills, knowledge of the environment, local geography, genealogy, history, and beliefs and values. Songs and stories recount hunting adventures and legends, while ceremonial dances demonstrate the coordination and agility required of the expert hunter. The author makes a case for using active participant-observation, in conjunction with standard ethnobiological research methods, for documenting non-verbal knowledge.
