  • Brian Masters has given us a full, well-ordered, dispassionate account of Nilsen's life and crimes

    The Times
  • A comprehensive and compelling account

    Financial Times
  • Brian Masters can rest assured that the job he undertook with such obvious doubts was one worth doing

  • Probably the best thing of its kind since In Cold Blood...a classic study in criminal mentality

    Yorkshire Post
  • Quite brilliant in its assimilation of the facts... Killing for Company is a book that needed to be written, and has been executed with extreme skill and good sense

    Time Out
  • A seminal look into the criminal mind

    Daily Mail
  • Simultaneously gripping and repellent... I feel confident that I will not read again in 1985 a more fascinating and repulsive tale, be it fact or fiction

    Literary Review
  • The book is a perceptive and at times coldly brutal assessment of Nilsen's psychology

    Daily Mirror
  • An important book which screams to be read

    New Statesman
  • A compelling and remarkable book... through Masters' fine writing the reader suspends his nausea for the crimes, and concentrates with Nilsen on his motives and himself

    The Listener
