Brian Masters, with Nilsen's full cooperation, has produced a unique study of a serial killer's mind, revealing the disturbing psychology of a mass murderer.

Review quote

"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 Observer "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
