Serial Killers Identified by Their Handwriting: A Look at 10 of the Worst, a new book by John Racher, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

Serial killers have fascinated the public for decades, sparking a myriad of discussions on their psychological make up, but rarely do we see the subject of handwriting come into the conversation. In this book, certified graphologist John Racher takes a deep dive into the handwriting of the world's most notorious serial killers and makes illuminating observations into the connection between handwriting and certain personality traits that predispose violence. Possessing these traits, such as a high level of anger and resentment, does not necessarily make one a killer, but as Racher's research will show, the key to a killer's personality lies in their handwriting.
