This work of art introduces the 'normal' thinking individual to the world of the psycotic mind. As you travel through one mans journey of life from childhood into adulthood. It illustrates the experiences and frustrations of one man trying to 'get on' in an unsympathetic society.
One unwanted adopted little boy grows up with a very strict German couple who have a shoemaking business along with quite radical beliefs, thus his childhood is not without its trauma. Is this the trigger? His obsessions grow as he matures and ultimately transforms his thoughts into sadistic actions. This book is totally compelling from cover to cover and well worth the read.

Fascinating reading.Read this book some 20 years ago & have been searching for a copy to buy ever since.Although i dont remember all the details of the book,i do recall being appalled at the crimes of Joseph Kallinger but by the end of the book was feeling a lot of sympathy for the man.This book takes you on an emotional rollercoaster on so many levels that makes it hard to put down.

This is probably one of the best books I've ever read, a truly fascinating and very sad journey through the life of a man haunted by an progressive illness that could best be described as a living hell. The author has done an amazing job getting to the core of his personality and the reasons behind his actions and gives you a rare insight into the mind of a deeply disturbed individual. This book will stay with you forever, and has left me with a deep sympathy for the man. Highly recommended, beautifully written, brilliant from start to finish, A MUST READ!

excellent, a must read, a true story that although is very gruesome and disturbing you may actually start to feel sympathy for this man, read it and understand the reasons for this mans insane behaviours.

The true story of an American psychotic killer. Well written and charts his progress from birth. Knowing it is true can get to you a bit because of the way his mind works and the gruesome details of what he did. However I could not put it down. Recommended if you can stomach it.
