Journey inside the demented mind of Albert Fish - paedophile, sadist and cannibal killer - and discover that bloodlust knows no time or place...On a warm spring day in 1928, a kindly, white-haired man appeared at the Budd family home in New York City, and soon persuaded Mr and Mrs Budd to let him take their adorable little girst, Grace, on an outing. The Budds never guessed that they had entrusted their child to a monster. After a relentless six year serach and nationwide press coverage, the mystery of Grace Budd's disappearance was solved - and a crime of unparalleled gore and revulsion was revealed to a stunned public. What Albert Fish did to Grace Budd, and perhaps fifteen other children, caused experts to pronounce him the most deranged human being they had ever seen.
