Review:

"'Killing For Company must stand as one of the most remarkable and accurate accounts ever written of the singular relationship between a mass murderer and a society. Brian Masters, in the writing, has achieved the impossible. Though dealing with sensational and horrific matters he has managed, God knows how, to treat his material with such objectivity and restraint that what we have is not a penny dreadful from the Hammer House of Horror, but a bloody masterpiece'." (Beryl Bainbridge)

"'A truly awesome tale, brilliantly told'." (Literary Review)

"Probably the best thing of its kind since In Cold Blood...a classic study in criminal mentality" (Colin Wilson Yorkshire Post)

"A meticulous study of the dark intricacies of the human mind" (The Bookbag)
