Whiskey Blood and Love. - Hoofdstuk 5 (on Wattpad) Haar gil ging door merg en been, maar daar hield ik van. Hier kreeg ik kippenvel van. Maar dan op een goede manier. Hier deed ik het voor. Hoe dit ooit begonnen is weet ik al lang niet meer. Dit dit was een deel van mij. Sterker dit was het gene wat mij maakte wie ik was. Een serie moordenaar werd ik genoemd in de kranten en op tv. Ik dode mensen, en veel mensen, maar nooit zonder reden.

Verlangen is een deel uit de serie waarin Archie Sheridan, rechercheur, de hoofdrol speelt. En natuurlijk zijn eigen nemesis, de knappe seriemoordenaar Gretchen Lowell. Waarmee hij ooit een relatie mee heeft gehad! Keer op keer weet hij haar te vangen, en weet hij haar op te sluiten. En weet zij weer te ontspannen. Zoals ook dit keer, uit een zwaar bewaakt gesticht. En net als de afgelopen jaar…

“Kelli overhandigde het papier en ik vouwde het open en legde het iets links van mijn linguini op tafel. Het was zo'n gestoord bericht dat seriemoordenaars en andere gevaarlijke gekken vaak in elkaar flansen, teneinde het zo fel begeerde dodelijke evenwicht tussen roem en anonimiteit te handhaven. De woorden waren zorgvuldig uit kranten geknipt en op het papier geplakt.

Ik voelde een zeer lichte huivering bij me opkomen. Ik wist niet zeker of dat door de brief kwam of door de zuppa di pesce. Er was iets mis met mensen die dit soort berichten samenstelden en verstuurden. De misdaden zelf waren, als ze tenminste gepleegd werden, misschien nog dagelijkse routine - maar woorden uit kranten knippen en die op een vel papier plakken duidde er meestal op dat je een griezel was, tenzij het een kind of een oude dame met een plakboek betrof.”

Dr. Henry Howard Holmes (his real name was Herman Webster Mudgett) was one of the first documented American Serial killers.

“I was born with the devil in me. I could not help the fact that I was a murderer, no more than the poet can help the inspiration to sing.. I was born with the Evil One standing as my sponsor beside the bed where I was ushered into the world, and he has been with me since.”

From the convession of Dr. H. H. Holmes

Maria Catherina Swanenburg (Leiden 9 September 1839 - 11 April 1915) was a Dutch Serial killer.

Between 1880 and 1883, she poisoned up to one-hundred people with arsenic; twenty-seven died. She failed in her attempt to kill at least another fifty using the same method. The investigation included about ninety deaths. 

Her first victim was her own mother in 1880; later she killed her father too. She was caught when trying to poison the Frankhuizen family in December 1883. Her trial began on April 23, 1885. Maria Swanenburg was found guilty and sentenced to live in a correctional facility for the rest of her life. She died there in 1915.
