From Harold Schechter, one of the principle chroniclers of the world's greatest psychopathic killers comes the definitive account of Ed Gein, whose ghoulish crimes stunned an unsuspecting nation.

Here is the grisly true story of Ed Gein, the killer whose fiendish fantasies inspired Alfred Hitchcock's PSYCHO. The mild-mannered farmhand bound to his domineering mother; driven into a series of gruesome and bizarre acts beyond all imagining. In chilling detail, Deviant explores the incredible career of one of the most twisted madmen in the annals of American crime--and how he turned a small Wisconsin farmhouse into his own private playground of ghoulishness and blood.
