The Shrine of Jeffrey Dahmer (out of print)
When he was arrested in July 1991, Jeffrey Dahmer had a severed head in the refrigerator, two more in the freezer, two skulls and a skeleton in a filing cabinet. There is a serial killer, an inhuman monster, beyond our understanding. But what did lead Dahmer to kill, coldly, again and again? Brian Masters investigates the darkest side of the human psyche in this true story of evil.
This extraordinary analysis into the mind of a notorious killer set the standard in true crime writing and is disturbing but essential reading - now repackaged as a Great Read
