Sure-Kill is a fictional memoir depicting the forces of nature and nurture that combine to create a psychopathic personality. By interweaving the past and the present, the narrative shows how a psycho killer can be created by dysfunctional parenting and peer abuse, focusing less on the actual crimes and more on the life process that forms the dysfunction personality that perpetrates the murders.
