Between 1978 and 1983, Dennis Nilsen murdered and mutilated at least 12 young men in London. Many of these young men went under the radar socially which enabled Nilsens shocking killing spree to go undetected for years. This True Crime Book lifts the lid on his sinister story. From his early upbringing in Scotland through to his final act as a free man this story weaves its way through the darker recess of a disturbed man’s psyche and his compulsion to murder. This book delves into the details of the killings and what triggered Nilsen to commit them. From his reliance on alcohol and his loneliness to the extraordinary reasons behind why he bathed the dead bodies and kept them in his apartment for extended periods of time.

Waiting on the scrubbed farmhouse table for her is a letter from her cherished Arthur Melville-Hare, a brave, blue-eyed captain who was shipped off to war. Through her tears, she knows what it means – she will never see her fiancé again. As she reads his last letter, she realises something the War Office didn’t: Fen and Arthur shared a love of crosswords, and he’s left her clever clues to his disappearance.
