Few serial killers in history have garnered as much attention as Jeffrey Lionel Dahmer. Although Dahmer killed 17 young men and boys, it was not so much the number of people he killed that makes him stand out among famous serial killers, but more so the acts of depravity that he committed on the corpses of his victims.
In this true crime story, you will listen to how Dahmer transitioned from a loner to serial killer, committing numerous unnatural acts along the way such as necrophilia and cannibalism. Following in the macabre tradition of another infamous Wisconsin serial killer - Ed Gein - Jeffrey Dahmer terrorized Milwaukee for most of the 1980s until he was finally captured in 1991.
Perhaps one of the most frightening aspects of Jeffrey Dahmer's serial killer career was how easy he was able to lure his victims into his trap. Dahmer possessed above average intellect, was conventionally good looking, and usually had a calm demeanor that could disarm even the most paranoid of people. Because of these traits, Dahmer was able to evade justice numerous times, which allowed him to keep killing. Truly, Dahmer was able to fool his family, the police, his neighbors, and even the judicial system into believing that he was not a threat; but during the entire time his kill count increased and the body parts of his victims began to pile up around his apartment.
Purchase this audiobook to listen to a story that is among the most disturbing of all true crime serial killers. You will follow the course of Dahmer's life from an alcoholic outcast in high school to a vicious predator who stalked the streets of Milwaukee. Finally, you will hear about Dahmer's trial, his jail house murder, and the impact that his many crimes had on Milwaukee.

A Biography of a Monster
Grotesque, Madness, Evil
Representative of Jack Rosewood's Serial Killer work. Short but thorough. Attention grabbing, well written
This is a biographical work, there isn't character interpretation. It is well written, and David L. White does a superb job getting the book across as written.
Empathy for the victims, disgust with Dahmer.
Another Jack Rosewood serial killer biography. Well done, as usual. Narrated well.
Thanks for the opportunity to listen and offer my opinions on this work!

A gruesome, in-depth look into a true monster
It was just a real in-depth look into the life and story of one of the nations most well known and disturbing serial killers. I found it interesting that he didn't show the "typical" signs of a serial killer, per the Macdonald Triad. It was disturbing, knowing that it was all true, but at the same time, fascinating.
I didn't have a favorite character. As this was an in-depth look into a monster and serial killer, well, I didn't like him at all.
I didn't have a favorite scene, as like I mentioned before, Dahmer was a true monster. That being said, just learning about his early teen years into his 20's was really interesting-learning how the monster reared it's head and how he used alcohol to "numb" what he truly felt inside. It's unfathomable.
