Schwartz, the Milwaukee Journal reporter who first broke the Dahmer story of murder and cannibalism in July 1991, here presents a superficial account of the case. The book is redeemed only by the chapters detailing the impact of the crimes on the city and those showing the media responding to the sensationalism of the revelations in a kind of feeding frenzy. Especially unsatisfactory is the psychological analysis of Dahmer, which has little depth. Additionally, Schwartz is a writer of only average ability. Photos not seen by PW. (June)
