+20 Free Killer Books [PDF]

The figure of the killer or murderer has always been attractive for literary fiction books. It is surrounded by an aura of mystery and repulsion, which makes it magnetic. This character cannot be missing in certain literary genres. That is why we have included the collection of killer books in PDF format.

The police or detective novel and the noir fiction have the murderer as an antagonistic figure. Without them, the genre would not be possible and, in fact, the detective (protagonist) would not have a purpose within the story. Let yourself be captivated by this selection of killer books in PDF format that we have made for you.

In the police novel a killer has very particular characteristics, usually there are several suspects, but only one of them is the murderer, who commits their crime and manages not to be discovered. Among these traits we can mention:

They use all kinds of distractions to divert the detective on their way to the investigation.

They have a cold and calculating character, although they always retain a trait of humanity, which usually creates dilemmas and contradictions, as well as they can explain the reason for their motivations.

They has a reason that leads them to murder and the detective will have to work on it to find the solution to the case. They have a sharp intelligence, usually at the same level as the detective.

They never leave traces or evidence of their crime.

In noir novels, on the other hand, we observe that the murderer is usually more bloodthirsty and perverse. In addition, they are categorized as a serial killer and whose crimes are of great impact for the reader and the characters in the story.
