Many people consider Anton LaVey the most dangerous man on earth. Others simply dismiss him as an entertaining charlatan. What secrets lurk within the man who shaved his head on Walpurgisnacht, 1966, and declared the formation of the Church of Satan? Written with the cooperation of her enigmatic subject, Blanche Barton’s biography reveals what has previously been hidden from public view:
- LaVey’s erotic involvements with Marilyn Monroe and Jayne Mansfield
- The dark origins of Satanic ritual
- LaVey’s early career as a hoodlum, carny, burlesque house organist, Cionist operative, lion tamer, and ghost hunter for the San Francisco police department
- Rare photographs and documents, including LaVey’s “banned essay” on lycanthropic transformation.
