Dahmer's Not Dead
by Edward Lee and Elizabeth Steffen
About the Book:
In November 1994, one of history's most diabolical serial-killers is beaten to death by another inmate in the prison where he was serving fifteen consecutive life sentences. Jeffrey Dahmer is dead. Or is he?
Two weeks after the madman's body is buried, another cannibalistic murder spree begins. Fingerprints, DNA, and modus operandi all link Dahmer to the hideous crimes.
Homicide cop Helen Closs is certain it's all a hoax or a clever copycat...until the night her own phone rings, and Jeffrey Dahmer himself begins to speak...
Dahmer's Not Dead is the latest collaborative effort by acclaimed horror novelist Edward Lee and serial-killer expert Elizabeth Steffen. Don't expect the same explicit hardcore horror that Edward Lee is so well-known for. Instead, Dahmer's Not Dead is a brilliant and technically accurate police-procedural thriller on par with the best crime novelists working today.
The Cemetery Dance Publications edition of Dahmer's Not Dead includes a full-color dust jacket and illustrated endpapers by Erik Wilson.
Edward Lee's distant creative endeavors include more hardcore horror novels, a political thriller, a military tech thriller, a "true-life" thriller, a pop-literati abstraction for which he just won a modest grant, several horror scripts and God knows what else. His favorite horror novel is Our Lady of Darkness by Fritz Leiber; favorite short story, "Loveman's Comeback" by Ramsey Campbell; most influential author, H.P. Lovecraft.
