Gil Valle On Writing A Gathering of Evil

(From the exclusive article at )

“Many people reached out to me directly on social media. A few of them suggested that I should channel my fantasies into a horror novel, so I thought about it and decided to give it a shot. I have the ability to tell a good, detailed story, and I think that something coming from me would have to be graphic and scary. I don’t think people who are familiar with me and the stigma attached to me would expect anything different.”

“I even had a hard time reading it when I was editing it. It’s not a book that’s going to be for everyone, but anyone who is into horror and wants to have their boundaries challenged should definitely check it out when it’s released.”

The hunt is on. Will the prey survive this gathering of evil?

About the Author

Gil Valle is a former NYPD patrol cop who rose to infamy in 2012 after he was wrongfully arrested by the feds for allegedly plotting to kidnap, cook, and eat women. He became known to the world as the “Cannibal Cop” and faced life in prison. Valle has since been completely exonerated of all wrongdoing. In February of 2017 he released the critically acclaimed Raw Deal—a memoir about his ordeal and the criminal case.

“An unflinching, downright scary memoir of injustice from a man whose penchant for morbid role-plays landed him in prison. Gil Valle’s sick, sexual, sometimes silly online chats were used against him by the feds, and he was convicted of masterminding an improbable conspiracy of cannibals that stretched across three continents. The outrageous prosecution cost him nearly everything he had—but now, finally, Valle has found a way to write his story for himself.” —Daniel Engber, Columnist for Slate Magazine

“Raw Deal, co-written with Brian Whitney, is an engrossing and very well-written book that shows a different side to the Valle who became a vilified punchline. Aside from the lurid subject matter, the book is important because it describes an apparent real-life case of the Orwellian nightmare of being persecuted and put on trial simply for “thought crime”. —Christine Colby, Managing Editor of

“This has to be one of the most fascinating and disturbing cases I’ve ever looked into. Disturbing not because of what he said, but because he was almost put in prison for life for his thoughts.” —Journalist Melkorka Licea, New York Post

Gil Valle resides in Queens, NY with his two dogs Dudley and Tyson. He has appeared on Inside Edition, Crime Watch Daily with Chris Hansen, People Magazine,, Slate, The New York Post, The New York Daily News, The New York City Crime Report, True Murder with Dan Zupansky, and many other places.
