"Horrifying...It's a story you will not soon forget."

JOHN BARKHAM REVIEWS



Here is the chilling true story of the manhunt for the most frighteningly brutal serial killer of modern times—for the Russian Jeffrey Dahmer. As the killer stalked train stations for new young prey, Detective Viktor Burakov stalked him, while an archaic Soviet system put every obstacle in his way. Overwhelmed by the sheer horror of the killer's deeds and haunted by the spectres of the dead, Burakov broke the rules of Soviet police work: He secretly asked a psychiatrist to create a psychological profile of the killer, which allowed Burakov to get inside the mind of the world's most dangerous man....



Mesmerizing, shocking, and immediate, THE KILLER DEPARTMENT is one of the most authentic and riveting cases in the annals of true crime.

Horrifying story, and it's completely true. This man killed and raped over 50 children. The detective that went after him had every obstacle in his way. A government that didn't believe Russia had serial killers, nor would they let this man contact the FBI for help. This man defined persistence. Great book. They also made a movie about it called "Citizen X". Buy the book or watch the movie. I've read the book and watched the movie myself. Either one won't let you down.
