Killing For Company: With a New Introduction by Brian Masters

SOON TO BE AN ITV DRAMA STARRING DAVID TENNANT

***WINNER OF THE GOLD DAGGER AWARD FOR CRIME NON-FICTION***

Dennis Nilsen, who died in May 2018, murdered at least 15 people before his arrest in 1983. This groundbreaking criminal study of his killings was written with Nilsen's full cooperation, resulting in a fascinating - and horrifying - portrait of the man who worshipped death.

On February 9th 1983 Dennis Nilsen was arrested at his Muswell Hill home, after human remains had been identified as the cause of blocked drains.

'Are we talking about one body or two,' a detective asked. Nilsen replied 'Fifteen or sixteen, since 1978. I'll tell you everything.'

Within days he had confessed to fifteen gruesome murders over a period of four years. His victims, all young homosexual men, had never been missed. Brian Masters, with Nilsen's full cooperation, has produced a unique study of a murderer's mind, essential reading for true crime aficionados.

Killing For Company Reviews

'Killing For Company must stand as one of the most remarkable and accurate accounts ever written of the singular relationship between a mass murderer and a society. Brian Masters, in the writing, has achieved the impossible. Though dealing with sensational and horrific matters he has managed, God knows how, to treat his material with such objectivity and restraint that what we have is not a penny dreadful from the Hammer House of Horror, but a bloody masterpiece'. * Beryl Bainbridge *
'A truly awesome tale, brilliantly told'. * Literary Review *
Probably the best thing of its kind since In Cold Blood...a classic study in criminal mentality -- Colin Wilson * Yorkshire Post *
A meticulous study of the dark intricacies of the human mind * The Bookbag *
