DEAR MR. MANSON...

It started with a college course assignment, then escalated into a dangerous obsession. Eighteen-year-old honor student Jason Moss wrote to men whose body counts had made criminal history: men named Dahmer, Manson, Ramirez, and Gacy.

DEAR MR. DAHMER...

Posing as their ideal victim, Jason seduced them with his words. One by one they wrote him back, showering him with their madness and violent fantasies. Then the game spun out of control. John Wayne Gacy revealed all to Jason -- and invited his pen pal to visit him in prison...

DEAR MR. GACY...

It was an offer Jason couldn't turn down. Even if it made him...

The book that has riveted the attention of the national media, this may be the most revealing look at serial killers ever recorded and the most illuminating study of the dark places of the human mind ever attempted.

This is an easy read. I was able to finish it in one marathon sitting. The minds of serial killers are truly disturbing, and sexual obsession and deviance seem to be a common trait with them.

The author comments on the way his experiences changed him and they are particularly haunting considering that he committed suicide slightly more than a decade after writing this book.

If you love reading books about serial killers, and knowing what they think, then this book is for you! I read it in two days: at first I was sucked in, but towards the end I found it kind of slow. However, once I was done with this book I couldn't stop talking about it. Wonderful book and very interesting!

Very distubring! The author committed suicide, which makes this book even more frightening. A lesson to be learned here! DON’T WRITE TO SERIAL KILLERS.
