NEW YORK, NY — Gil Valle, the NYPD officer who was given the nickname the “Cannibal Cop” in 2012 after he got caught allegedly planning to kidnap, torture, kill, cook, and eat women, has penned a new horror novel — in which women are kidnapped, killed, and eaten.
Valle signed a deal with publisher Comet Press, who wrote in a press release that they are very excited to be publishing A Gathering of Evil, Valle’s “extreme and very disturbing” novel, this winter.
According to the description:
“A Gathering of Evil is the story of two New York women leading seemingly normal lives, completely unaware that they have been targeted by a group of wealthy and violent sadists. This group, who met through the Dark Web, share some rather unusual sexual desires, along a desire to turn those twisted fantasies into reality.
” A Gathering of Evil is a graphic and disturbing story that will make even the most hardened fan of extreme horror squirm, including the Comet Press editors. Hats off to Gil for writing one of the most horrific books we’ve ever read. It takes a helluva lot to get under our skin, and he succeeded.”

Though Valle has been totally exonerated of all wrongdoing, he told CrimeFeed that he turned to writing after realizing that he could probably never return to his old role in law enforcement.
Valle said that he enjoyed “everything” about writing the memoir — which he accomplished in just a month, and then had a deal less than a week after that. He plans to continue writing.
