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.

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

An introduction to serial killers… What an introduction!

I want to read this book after seeing the film the last victim on which this film is based after reading this book I was left with the impression that the author was indeed the last victim. I do not believe that he ever got over his experiences writing to John Wayne Gacy and Richard Ramirez. The book Chronicles this relationship particularly with Gacy but also touched on his relationship with the Ramirez and Charles Manson. Jason was brave and naive to believe that he could outwit these men who committed the most atrocious crimes against humanity. What we learn is what I would like to be a victim of a serial killer and how they must've felt being under the spell. One interesting note Jason managed to contact Jeffrey Dalmers and they wrote to each other briefly before Dalmers death in prison One could only imagine what we could of learned if that relationship had been allowed to develop. This book is very interesting and insightful but you can't help but keep in the back of your mind that the author paid the ultimate price. Previous reviewer said that this was an instruction to serial killers… This is not true as the technique are used to get them to write what's the meticulously analyse their victims and take on their mannerisms in order to gain a victim perspective the end result is both frightening and brave .. I loved this book narration is excellent warning though not for the squeamish

Narrator

What did you love best about The Last Victim?

It was an a creepy, scary and exciting glimpse into the mind of serial killers.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Thomas Fawley?

I don't know, but I did not enjoy his narration. Found his voice very irritating. I almost quit listening, but persisted because of the story.

Pulling the Covers back and Exposing True Evil

It is a true story of the autobiographical story of Jason Moss who wrote to serial killers and got into their psyche while doing so by intentionally fabricating stories to tap into their brain to get some insight that could explain their murders. Riveting, Scary and thought provoking. What this book uncovers is the the devils work in a personal setting. There is true evil out there and this book uncovers the shadows of the blackness that truly exist in not just the most commonly known serial killers, but from everyday people who walk down the sidewalk in front of your house.

John Wayne Gacy we all know from what we have heard and read was a terrible person and a psychotic killer. But this book puts you in the same room with John Waynce Gacy and locks the doors. Gacy is a monster. But this book exposes him for the true monster that he really is and help seperates him from any prior thoughts you may a have a had about him. Yeah he is a serial killer, and we know he killed 30 something people and buried them under his house, thats common knowledge. But that really doesn't seperate him from the others right?? Well read this and you will change the way you think. This book also covers Richard Ramirez, Dahmer and Manson. Great stuff.....but listen to it with the lights on and whatever you do don't listen it before you go to sleep. You don't want to let these guys into your dreams at night. The only negative is the narrator who is terrible, but not enough to warrant a 5 star rating.
