    "There are a plethora of crime books out there, but serial killer stories are a particularly popular sub-genre. In Deviant, author Harold Schechter retells the story of killer Ed Gein. Though it may be too graphic for younger readers, it is truly one of the most shocking crime stories of the 20th century. "
