Publisher's Summary

An extraordinary analysis into the mind of a notorious killer which set the standard in true crime writing.

An unspeakable crime.

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.

A deprived act.

But if anything could be more disturbing than the brute horror of this scene, it was the evidence that Dahmer had been using these human remains not only for sexual gratification but as part of a dark ritual of his own devising - to furnish a shrine to himself.

A killer beyond our understanding.

The Shrine of Jeffrey Dahmer offers a chilling insight into the mind of a serial killer and reveals the horrors within. 

Perfect for fans of Making a Murderer, Mindhunter and The Ted Bundy Tapes, this is a gripping and gruesome listen that delves into the mind of a murder and what possesses someone to kill.

Probably the most comprehensive story of JD

This book looks at many different aspects - childhood, possible traumas, various plausible motives such as JD's struggle with his homosexuality, the question of mental disease and insanity, a brief history of cannibalism and necrophilia. A well-researched and well-written case study.

Gory but informative

I really enjoyed this book (some how feels wrong to say that, how will it come across to a stranger?) yes the story was sickening, gory and at times stomach churning but never salacious, never over indulging on those parts you don't really want to know too much about. It was a good tempo, and upbeat despite the subject matter.

Dark disturbing fascinating !!

This book is not for the faint hearted the case of JD is well documented but few books seek to understand the make up of JD and dwell to much on sensation. Masters tries to uncover the decent into madness but also the pitiful struggle he had to try fit in and try to be accepted to eventually disengaging totally. The narration is excellent and the change in narration to reflect JD’s dialogue is very impressive. This book will give you a very unique view of the crimes the court case JD the man the experiences that shaped him and also the missed opportunity to stop his progression to killing.

Very interesting

These crime books are awesome but the endings always seem to get a bit boring once they go away from the killings
