About this deal

verifyErrors }}{{ message }}{{ /verifyErrors }}{{ Someone posted free PDF’s to all major books about Dahmer including A Fathers Story, Grilling Dahmer, The Shrine of Jeffrey Dahmer, My Friend Dahmer, Monster: The True Story of the Jeffrey Dahmer Murders, and others as well as transcripts of his confession and a transcript of a 1992 interview. Then there’s the focus on the “shrine”. All that talk about Dionysus and wendigos was meant to give context to the bizarre, ritualistic, quasi-religious nature of Dahmer’s modus operandi. By now everyone familiar with the case knows about the “shrine” he was building, complete with griffin statues standing guard and flashing lights (?). The average onlooker would assume the altar was nothing more than a byproduct of mental illness, yet another sign of the insanity. But Masters bulks it up, ascribing the attributes of our primitive pagan ancestors to a primal killer’s instincts. And that’s fine – it makes sense, I suppose. Dahmer doesn’t know why he did it or where the idea came from, so Masters is putting his own spin on it, drawing his own conclusions. Everyone is going to see this case through their own filters anyway.

I think that’s why people like me and Natalie are drawn to this stuff, it’s like taking a weird holiday." Most Read

When Ferrier questions if there are similarities between her and Dahmer, Natalie at first denies it but then explains that she is “weird”. Perfect for fans of Making a Murderer, Mindhunter and The Ted Bundy Tapes, this is a gripping and gruesome read that delves into the mind of a murder and what possesses someone to kill.

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. Farrier replies: “It’s so odd because it’s almost like a child’s drawing and yet it’s about something so incredibly... I mean this is like True Detective or something right, but beyond." After My Friend Dahmer, this is the second book on Dahmer I have read. And considering how I felt about that one, I can’t say that this was worse. However, it wasn’t my ideal, so to speak. It’s very dry in places and meanders quite a bit, plus Masters isn’t emotionally connected to any of this at all, except that he was present during the trial.By the author of Killing for Company, which was adapted into the hit ITV true crime drama DES, starring David Tennant. Presenter David Farrier says of the city of Milwaukee: "It's famous for beer and cheese, and a serial killer." She said: “He saved the entire bodies of these two on the end... he had a thing for hands, he’d save the hands a lot of times and obviously the penis."

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. Bizarre connections to the ancient Roman deity Dionysus, the American Indian legendary creatures known as wendigos, and other ancient mythos that, while interesting on its own, seemed out of place here. The Shrine of Jeffrey Dahmer offers a chilling insight into the mind of a serial killer and reveals the horrors within.Comparisons between Dahmer and other serial killers, particularly Dennis Nilsen, that I found interesting initially but soon grew weary of.
