An equal parts haunting and hilarious deep-dive review of history’s most notorious and cold-blooded serial killers, from the creators of the award-winning Last Podcast on the Left

Since its first show in 2010, The Last Podcast on the Left has barreled headlong into all things horror, as hosts Henry Zebrowski, Ben Kissel, and Marcus Parks cover subjects spanning Jeffrey Dahmer, werewolves, Jonestown, and supernatural phenomena. Deeply researched but with a morbidly humorous bent, the podcast has earned a dedicated and aptly cultlike following for its unique take on all things macabre.

In their first book, the guys take a deep dive into history’s most infamous serial killers, from Ted Bundy to John Wayne Gacy, exploring their origin stories, haunting habits, and perverse predilections. Featuring newly developed content alongside updated fan favorites, each profile is an exhaustive examination of the darker side of human existence. With appropriately creepy four-color illustrations throughout and a gift-worthy paper over board format, The Last Book on the Left will satisfy the bloodlust of readers everywhere. 


  • Great but....

    By Boss Hoss69
    The book is awesome Marcus does a great job but Ben’s “check please” and other “Jokes” get old...
  • Too many forced jokes

    By Jeff V S
    The authors think they’re wittier than they are and force too many lame jokes. It may work in a podcast format but not a book.
  • Interesting Read

    Enjoyed the book, well written and hard to put down. Could do without the silly commentary between paragraphs but it's easy just to skip over.
