Are there records of famous serial killers before the 1700s?

We all know about Jack the Ripper and relatively recent characters, but why can't I find a book about serial killers before this time? Does this mean that the "serial killer" is a cultural phenom?
I am looking for good reading about pre-Victorian serial killers.
