Drawing on exclusive interviews and previously unreported material, journalist Tim Cahill “offers the stuff of wrenching nightmares” (Wall Street Journal), a harrowing journey inside the mind of a serial killer. Meticulously researched and graphically recounted, Buried Dreams brings to vivid life the real John Wayne Gacy – his complex personality, compulsions, inadequacies and torments – often in the killer’s own words. Called “an absorbing and disturbing story” (PW) and “surprisingly graceful” (New York Times), this is a journey to the heart of human evil that you will never forget.

High Praise and Rave Reviews for Buried Dreams:
“A rare and brilliant work of criminal literature that must stand with Truman Capote’s ‘In Cold Blood’ and Norman Mailer’s ‘The Executioner’s Song’ as a seminal example of the investigative genre… the kind of book you hate passionately from page one but simply can’t put down.”
“This book had you think of the mind of this psycho at the Dinner Table, before you went to sleep, or doing anything at all. The fact that it dives so deep into his mind and what he was like as a person is simply remarkable. If you find serial killers interesting this is a must buy book for you.”
“After I was finished with this book, it left my senses tingling. I have never read a book that went inside the mind of a serial killer, this was very in depth, and kept you wanting to read more! Tim Cahill is an absolutely genius! Tim takes you from John’s early childhood, all the way though prison!”
