You might want to consider Kenneth J. Harvey's "Skin Hound (There Are No Words)", from The Mercury Press. This is an excellent deconstruction of our fascination with serial killer mythology. The book is not available from Amazon, but can be ordered through the the Canadian on-line store, and from the publisher I believe, also on-line. Of course, there's also the question of whether someone living and writing in Newfoundland (as Harvey does) is considered "American".
