Synopsis: A portrayal of notorious serial killer Dennis Nilsen looks behind the facade of a seemingly innocent social worker and discovers the ruthless killer who murdered and dismembered fifteen young men. 15,000 first printing. $15,000 ad/promo.

Review: This brilliant psychological study of British serial killer Dennis Nilsen was, writes the author, an "oddity," because its subject was so "outlandish," so unheard-of in the annals of psychiatry: "Until, that is, Jeffrey Dahmer was arrested ... While in the immediate sense of personal impact Dahmer is unlike Nilsen, being diffident, quiet, polite, even a little dull, against Nilsen's extrovert loquacity and self-confidence, their crimes bear such close similarities of method, manner, and, yes, motive, as to ... mean that the Nilsen/Dahmer brand of florid necrophilia could at last be definable." Brian Masters, better known for his literary and historical works, has written a classic of true crime--a penetrating exploration of not just the crimes, but also the mind of a serial killer. Especially fascinating are excerpts from Nilsen's journals and a collection called "Sad Sketches: Monochrome Man" of drawings and handwritten prose and poetry about the victims. The book includes a postscript by a forensic psychiatrist and a bibliography.
