Cannibalism is perhaps the most repugnant of all crimes against human beings. It has long been a taboo subject, with even the tabloid press shying away from publishing precise details of cannibal crimes. When Albert Fish kidnapped, killed, and consumed ten-year-old Grace Budd in New York in 1928, he went to great pains to assure her parents, in a letter he wrote six years later that brought about his arrest, that he had not sexually assaulted her. But at the time, the court portrayed Fish as a sexually motivated criminal rather than as a cannibal. Yet, sexual depravity and cannibalism are far from being mutually exclusive. Andrei Chikatilo, the Butcher of Rostov, is proof of that, having eaten parts of the sexual organs of some of his fifty-six victims. Tsutomu Miyazaki, the Japanese Dracula, murdered little girls, molested their corpses, and drank their blood. These and many other cases, including those of Jeffrey Dahmer, Edmund Kemper, Joachim Kroll (the Duisburg Man Eater), and Daniel Rakowitz—who murdered his roommate and made soup from her brains—are studied in chilling detail.

Throw her heart
I got about half way into this book and was so creeped out. I had to stop reading so I wouldn't get more sick. There were a few typos in the book though. Otherwise it was interesting. It's sickening to read people are actually like this.
This true crime novel of intense killers is not for the faint of heart. This truly terrifying reality just might have you double checking shoulders and safety locks as the sun goes down. Make sure to keep a light on in the background incase of creaking staircases and faint noises in the background as you read. Chloe Castleden is sure to open your eyes to a new reality as your heart races through every page. Great Read!
This book was extremely interesting and pretty well written for a true crime overview. It had a ton of grammar mistakes and typos but it hardly took away from the story. Chloe Castleden hardly strays from the facts she presents into her own analysis and I think that was the best thing for this book overall.

The biggest complaint about this book is how un-scholarly it is written. She gives no citation at all which leads me to believe it as a good starting place for true crime fans but not a bible. Look elsewhere for better researched and cited materials.

If the author could get a better editor and use citation with her work she may be better received as a writer.
