Publisher's Summary

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.

An exercise in lunacy.

What would have made The Last Victim better?

To start with a less robotic narrator. While Fawley tries hard to play each part separately he fails and the pace is slow and monotone.


What was most disappointing about Jason Moss and Jeffrey Kottler ’s story?

I could not see past the main character's arrogance and blatant stupidity. The most common element that shines through is how Moss really love himself. He believes he is capable of trapping and training the mind of some seriously damaged, evil murderers and doesn't baulk at including his own younger brother in the mess it creates! The first 16 chapters are filled with this self love and I don't think I can put up with any more of this rubbish.


You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

If the correspondence between Moss and Gacy are factual then perhaps less pornographic examples and more detailing the whole mindset of the man might have redeemed something.


Any additional comments?

If you are looking for a 'true crime' story I'd strongly suggest choosing something else.

Unreal & intense

Had a real sense of eeriness & suspense that kept me listening most days until I was finished.
Anyone studying forensic psychology needs to read this book as it has a total twist on understanding a serial killers mind
