Publisher's Summary

It was once stated that "if the devil were a man, it would have been Ottis Toole." Raised by a mother who was a religious fanatic, Toole admitted to committing his first murder at age 14. After being picked up by a traveling salesman who forced him to have sex, Toole ran the man down with his own car. As a boy, Toole was classified as retarded, and he soon dropped out of school and turned to a life of petty crime.

Over the next 20 years, Toole, whether it be with his lover and partner in crime, Henry Lee Lucas, or on his own, he set fires that killed innocent victims, murdered women and cannibalized them, and even took a bizarre "training course" in how to kill people more efficiently, with a group known as "the Hand of Death". And upon his interview in prison, he gave his interviewer his own special "recipe" for barbecue sauce, two of the ingredients being human blood and body fat.

Was Ottis Toole telling the truth about his murderous, cannibalistic exploits, or, like his friend and partner in crime, Henry Lee Lucas, was he simply providing the confessions the law wanted to hear in order to close cold cases? In Eating Disorder, Brian Lee Tucker examines the trail of his path of destruction from behind the scenes, to expose the possible truth behind the myths and legends of the Cannibal Kid.

    "TOTAL FANTASY"

    entertaining.. but not exactly a true crime book..this definitely not Anne Rule ..Katheryn Casey or Fred Rosen..full of lewd xrated fly on the wall type of writing .. as though the author was along for the mayhem..it reminds me of something a goth teenager might write..its not horrible.. but its definitely nothing special..
