Overview

"It was an urge ... an evil urge, and the longer I let it go, the stronger it got", said Ed Kemper, the serial killer and cannibal.

Fiendish, demonic, hellish – each one of these adjectives applies to the diabolical acts that the people in this book have committed. Gruesome killers such as Burke and Hare, who murdered people so that they could sell cadavers. Jack the Ripper, the world's most notorious serial killer of Victorian London, and Albert Fish, a man so fiendish that his story makes Hannibal Lecter's exploits seem tame by comparison. Cannibals such as Ed Gein the bizarre necrophiliac, and Andrei Chikatilo, the Rostov Ripper, who is said to have killed as many as fifty-three young girls and boys, eating his victims in the process. This book contains the shocking truth about the world's most horrifying killers – it is not for the squeamish.
