Mass murder is awful enough. But some serial killers not only embark on slaying to slake their perverted pleasures but enjoy the mutilation of their victims bodies and sometimes also revert to cannibalism.

The simple act of slaying would sicken most people. Yet that is not sufficient a thrill for those who find the excitement begins once their victims are dead. Cutting up corpses is, of course, one way of disposing of the evidence. But here we examine the butchers who dismember for pleasure.

They are monsters like Andrei Chikatilo, the so-called Rostov Ripper, who tortured, murdered, chopped up and sometimes cannibalised as many as 50 victims. Or they can be quite unassuming perverts like Dennis Nilsen, whose London house of horrors so overflowed with body parts that they blocked the drains.

There is nothing new about this, the sickest side of homicide, of course. The most famous serial killer of all was Jack the Ripper and butchering maniacs have been slashing their bloody path through history ever since.

This spine chilling book immediately delves into the worlds and minds of some of the most well known and sickest murders and cannibals in our world from the very first page. All of the information that is presented in the book is in depth and will make the reader check their windows before they go to bed after reading this because of the details of how these crimes were committed and by whom. The information in this book , however, will also keep you gripped until the very last page due to the fact that it tells you all about the crimes from how they did it, who they killed and even who/who they think was the murderer, such as the case of Jack The Ripper who police suspected was Robert Mann. People who enjoy a murder mystery will enjoy this interesting book so that they can see for themselves who were the victims, who was the murderer, what happened and what was in the mind of the killer or cannibal who committed the crime. This book is an intriguing read and will not let you down once you've finished it.

Jenna (Customer Review)

From the author of its accompanying volume Serial Killers: The World's Most Evil comes this equally, if not more, disturbing collation of those most evil murderous maniacs whose twisted spin on 'fun' begins only after the death of their unsuspecting victims. Multiple murderers, butchering, mutilation and cannibalisation all rear their horrifying heads in this; the sickest side of murder most foul. Featuring the likes of Jack the Ripper - the most famous serial killer of all - this book is a 'dare to delve' among many of its predecessors of the true crime world... certainly not one for the faint-hearted, but a real page-turner if you're into examining what is behind the psychology of the world's most monstrous.
