The Stranger Inside Me, by Loes den Hollander
You could call this a ghost story but you probably won't. The narrator is a troubled young man who gets regular nightly visits from Ted Bundy. The deceased serial killer (we never read his actual words) wants him to carry on the tradition by killing women who resemble ones who got away from Bundy.
This disturbs our protagonist enough that his arguments with said killer wake his mother who brings in a social worker. He isn't very fond of the caseworker. He doesn't seem to get along with anyone, really...
A very creepy story, although thankfully not filled with gore and horror. Many surprises along the way.
