From the Back Cover:

It is a crime that shocks and stuns more than any other. It is the ultimate in criminal depravity. It runs like a blood-red thread through novels like The Silence of the Lambs.

Now, take a grim and terrifying journey into the world of the cannibal killer¿

Ed Gein the twisted trophy hunter and role model for Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho, who liked to keep his victims' lips in a small bowl

Issei Sagawa a real natural-born killer, celebrated in song by the Rolling Stones and toasted by the Japanese art world after he killed and ate a Dutch co-ed

Jeffrey Dahmer the Milwaukee Murderer who kept souvenirs from most of his 17 victims, including three human heads in his refrigerator

Andrei Chikatilo history's worst cannibal killer who delighted in boiling and eating sawn-off body parts of his victims, often not bothering to kill them before the mutilation began

A chilling look at history's most repugnant criminals, Cannibal Killers is a horrifying story too shocking to believe-except that it's true.
