Cellar of Horror Cover

 

Staff Pick

Ever heard the name Gary Heidnik? He was an uber-smart, wealthy, good-looking man with just one hitch: he was a psychopath. Residing in Philadelphia circa 1980, this handsome young buck was trying to start an army. What kind of army you ask? An army of children! And the first thing on his agenda was locating adequate mothers for these future automatons.  If you are looking for a book that is stranger than fiction and hard to believe, then this one's for you!  Full of information on Gary the man, Gary the boy, and Gary the lunatic.

Publisher Comments:

Serial killer Gary Heidnik's name will live on in infamy, and his home, 3520 North Marshall Street in Philadelphia, is a house tainted with the memory of unbelievable horrors. What police found there was an incredible nightmare made real. Four young women had been held captive--some for four months--half-naked and chained. They had been tortured, starved, and repeatedly raped. But more grotesque discoveries lay in the kitchen: human limbs frozen, a torso burned to cinders, an empty pot suspiciously scorched...

This is not a story for the faint-hearted. Cellar of Horror is a shocking true account of the self-proclaimed minister with a long history of mental illness, who preyed upon the susceptible and the retarded in a bizarre plan to create his own "baby factory." It is a macabre web spun around money, power, and religion, tangled with courtroom drama and lawyers' tactics, sure to send a chill into your very soul.
