He was a soft-spoken grandfather, a family man and a retired English teacher. But beneath the model-citizen exterior of Andrei Chikatilo lurked the most heinous of criminals - the serial killer. Sexually mutilating and eating his victims, his 12-year rampage in southern Russia finally came to an end in 1990, when an uncannily accurate profile of him by a local psychologist led police to him. He has admitted killing 11 boys and 42 girls and young women. This book probes the mind of this killer.
