I second MaryMary. The Dexter books are outstanding.

the Dexter series is really good (numbers 1&2 are number 4 is due out this summer).  Also Red Dragon by Thomas Harris.

I think that Coffin Dancer by Jeffrey Deaver features a serial killer.  IIRC, several of his books have serial killers in them, though not the same one.

Try Allison Brennan.  She has some way out plots.  They're good though.  Pat

Beverly Barton has THE DYING GAME and THE MURDER GAME. Serial killer cousins in competition with each other. She gives more detail about each victim which makes it  waaay more creepy.
