“One of the most twisted tales you will ever read, and it’s all true. This Is a story of cannibal fetishes, a terrified wife, lying FBI agents, a false conviction and a nice public shaming to top it all off. Kafka could not have dreamed up a scenario this wild.”—Patrick Quinlan, Los Angeles Times bestselling author of SMOKED
“An unflinching, downright scary memoir of injustice from a man whose penchant for morbid role-plays landed him in prison. Gil Valle’s sick, sexual, sometimes silly online chats were used against him by the feds, and he was convicted of masterminding an improbable conspiracy of cannibals that stretched across three continents. The outrageous prosecution cost him nearly everything he had—but now, finally, Valle has found a way to write his story for himself.” —Daniel Engber, columnist Slate Magazine
“This has to be one of the most fascinating and disturbing cases I’ve ever looked into. Disturbing not because of what he said, but because he was almost put in prison for life for his thoughts.” —Melkorka Licea, NY Post Reporter
