It is an examination of some of the world's most macabre crimes as well as a clinical examination of the purpose-built rooms, hidden spaces and soundproof dungeons prepared for victims. In 1984, abusive father Josef Fritzl drugged his 18 year old daughter with ether and imprisoned her in a dungeon under his house. She wasn't to see daylight for 24 years. Bondage freak Izabela Lewicka willingly signed a 115 item contract giving John Edward Robinson complete control over her life, but she never imagined it would be a licence to kill. From the massive Murder Castle once used by Dr H. H. Holmes to prey upon those attending the 1893 Chicago World's Fair to the hand-tooled box under the bed where Cameron Hooker kept his 'sex slave', John Marlowe takes us on a disturbing insight into the deeds and evil motivations of monsters. 304pp in illustrated softback.
