Human Sacrifice

A Shocking Expose Of Ritual Killings Worldwide

By Jimmy Lee Shreeve
Skyhorse Publishing (6 Jan. 2015)

Human Sacrifice

Welcome to the terrifying world of ritual sacrifice…

Around the world, humans are being trafficked, kidnapped, sold and enslaved for the specific purpose of sacrifice. Mass-scale migration has seen these gruesome techniques exported from the land of the Aztecs and finding their way to the United States, Britain, and many other locations world-wide.

Voodoo priests in London have been linked to ritual murders, and not long ago, a Palo Mayombe priestess’s New York City apartment yielded its grisly secrets. One New Jersey investigator says that sacrificial rites are not only going on today, but can be traced back ninety years in that state alone.

Jimmy Lee Shreeve takes us on a nightmare journey, following the initial investigations of Scotland Yard into the murder of a five-year-old boy whose torso was found floating in the Thames in 2001, and travelling to Africa to unveil a grim trade of exporting humans for sacrifices and murders.

He uncovers the dark side of Voodoo and Muti magic, linked with a score of sacrifices and murders, and in Mexico, finds a devotee of Palo Mayombe responsible for torturing his victims and boiling them in a cauldron.

Along the way, Shreeve brings his own brand of offbeat detective skills to the fore, providing startling conclusions to some of the world’s most horrific murders.

Brutal and disturbing, Human Sacrifice takes us into the dark world of twenty-first-century ritual murder.

What People Say


“The deeds [Shreeve] writes about are not relics of some antique age of superstition and irrationality…These are the ghosts that walk our won streets, in broad daylight, propelled by a hunger they can never completely satisfy.”
~ Peter Levenda, author, Sinister Forces

“Human Sacrifice is an electrifying read detailing the history of mankind’s darkest spiritual obsessions. The author takes us deep inside a secret world to reveal bloodthirsty cults, top secret police investigations, and political intrigue […] A real page turner…but sleep with your light on.”
~ Jonathan Tapsell, author of Porn Again Christian


This is a great book! I was surprised how much I enjoyed reading it as given the subject matter I wasn’t expecting to. The book deals with some truly gruesome crimes and the descriptions of some of these are very graphic!

What makes the book different and interesting for me is that Jimmy Lee Shreeve has a background in Voodoo and, while not excusing or condoning any of the atrocities, he is able to offer a good deal of insight into what the perpetrators of these acts expect to get from them and why they believe they work.

This is very different to anything I had read before and this sounds strange as it deals with murder and human sacrifice – it is gripping and very easy to read. This is my first Jimmy Lee Shreeve book but it won’t be my last. I recommend this book to adults everywhere.”
Reader from the UK.

Compelling reading – but you need a strong stomach…This book contains the stuff of nightmares and certainly requires a strong stomach. I read this book with a mixture of enjoyment and revulsion. Most of the cases of human sacrifice are described very graphically and there are some grim pictures, so the parental warning is definitely justified.

Jimmy Lee Shreeve covers cases from around the world including here in the UK. In some instances the sacrifices are done out of shear bloody desperation as in some of the killings to the Hindu goddess Kali. Other killings are done out of greed i.e the gangsters and drug dealers who want protection from the law and believe a human sacrifice will give them protection from the gods.

And some killings are the result of pure madness as in the German Satanists who hacked to death a good friend to appease their chosen god – then refused to take any blame for it. Shreeve comes up with some interesting thoughts on why people commit such atrocites and also provides some relief from the blood and gore with colourful anecdotes of his own. This is a compelling and horrifying book and not easy to put down once you start to read. I thoroughly recommend it.”

Mary Jane’s Hash Brownies, Hot Pot, and Other Marijuana Munchies: 30 delectable ways with weed

Let’s get stoned with these 30 tasty recipes from Mary Jane, the weed world’s answer to Mary Berry.

By Dr Hash (AKA Jimmy Lee Shreeve)
Dog ‘n’ Bone (11 Aug. 2016)

Hash Brownies

Let’s face it, you can’t get away from the fact that smoking – anything – isn’t good for you. The good news is, you don’t have to give up the joys of dope. You simply have to learn to cook.

If you’re a dab hand with savories, pastries, cakes or desserts, you’ll be laughing.

But even if you’re not, many of the recipes in this book are no more difficult than making a cup of coffee. In no time, you’ll be the ‘Nigella Lawson’ of counter culture – the difference being, unlike Nigella’s, your dishes will give you and your dinner guests one hell of a buzz! And you can guarantee they’ll be coming back for more…

Written by Dr Hash – the streetwise ‘medicine man’ – this book reveals the secrets of his aunt, Mary Jane. After trying her ‘cakes of light’, she initiated him into the art of cannabis cuisine.

First, learn to turn the cannabis into a butter – and then you can use it in almost anything! From delicious main meals, such as spaghetti bolognese, to stratospheric snacks like classic brownies, fudge and biscuits, you’ll soon be able to cook up a storm.

From the inside jacket

Let’s get stoned! Whether you go for an after-work treat to take the edge off the day or want your party to pack a punch, these tasty little recipes will help get you there, the natural way.

We begin with the story of Mary Jane Belmont and her protégé, Dr Hash, then get right to The Basics – knowing your weed. Check out what you have and how to treat it right for maximum effect, then move onto Cool Beginnings… and cannabis canapés.

Sweet and Small Treats gives you the recipe for Mary Jane’s very famous hash brownies and fudge, or try out her cupcakes (but don’t donate any to the bake sale).

If you’re really hungry, Big Stuff, like pizza and tacos, will do the trick. The Refreshments chapter offers drinks like hash coffee and cocktails to kick-start the evening or bring you gently down. Depending how much hash you put in, of course.

True Stories Of The Horrifying Killers Who Feast On Human Flesh

By Jimmy Lee Shreeve
John Blake 2008.


The eating of human flesh by a fellow human is utterly repulsive and abhorrent to most of us. Yet the practise was widespread all over the world in prehistoric times. Chillingly, there are some among us who still do it today – and their depraved thirst for human flesh is so strong they resort to slaughtering others to satisfy it.

In 2004, police called at the East London flat of Brian Cherry. On entering they were confronted with a horrifying sight. His brains were simmering on the stove, and his body lay dismembered on the floor in a pool of blood. Cherry’s friend Peter Bryan had killed him and eaten his brains with butter because the local Kentucky Fried Chicken was closed at the time. “It was definitely finger licking good,” said Bryan laughing.

In Germany, in 2001, there was the case of Armin Meiwes, who advertised on websites for “young, well-built men aged 18-30 to slaughter.” Amazingly, he got a taker: one Bernd-Jurgen Brandes. Meiwes told investigators that he took Brandes back to his home, where his new friend agreed to have his penis cut off. Meiwes flambeed the organ for the pair of them…

Meiwes said he then killed Brandes with his consent and went on to eat 44 pounds of his flesh.

Cannibals covers many grotesque and stomach-churning cases of contemporary cannibalism, revealing outwardly normal people who have murdered and eaten their own kind.

EXCLUSIVE!!! Cannibals also contains exclusive, never-before-revealed interview footage with a real life cannibal called Eric Soames (who got his human flesh from mortuaries), and his subsequent exorcism by an old friend of Jimmy Lee’s – Canadian shaman Elias Crazywolf.

The terrifying truth is: Cannibals aren’t just found in far-flung islands, they inhabit our cities and suburbs today.

What People Say


A new true crime book called Cannibals by Jimmy Lee Shreeve exposes the extent of cannibalism on the Internet. Human flesh eaters are apparently eyeing people up on social networking sites like MySpace with a view to devouring them. Eric Soames, a self-professed cannibal told Shreeve of cannibal groups circulating on the internet, looking for potential victims.

Soames said he didn’t want to murder anyone, so he found ways of getting human flesh from mortuaries and even cemeteries. He’d take a sharp knife, cut bits off, and take them home and fry them up in a pan. According to Shreeve, some cannibals have no problem taking peoples lives so they can eat their fresh.” InebriatedPress

Dr Snake’s Voodoo Spellbook

Spells, curses and folk magic for all your needs

By Doktor Snake (AKA Jimmy Lee Shreeve)
St Martin’s Press, 2004

Voodoo Spellbook

Voodoo for the masses…

Doktor Snake’s Voodoo Spellbook was first published over ten years ago. Within months of hitting the streets, the book became a cult bestseller. Back then there was nothing out there that clearly set out voodoo and hoodoo in an accessible and usable way. You either had dodgy pamphlets, which were poorly produced and which had been endlessly reprinted from the 1930s or academic books…none told you how to do it.

The Voodoo Spellbook was hip, sassy, and rock and roll. Doktor Snake is rightly proud of the interest in voodoo and hoodoo it generated.

Richly illustrated, Doktor Snake’s Voodoo Spellbook was published by St Martin’s Press in the U.S. and by Connections in the UK.

Original Cover Blurb

Afro-American magic is one of the world’s largest spiritual systems. Yet it remains shrouded in secrecy and sometimes fear…

In his Voodoo Spellbook, Doktor Snake guides you through this shadowy world, where illusion walks the deadly tightrope with enlightenment. Voodoo is not a path for the fainthearted. It does not shy away from human passions. But treats them honestly and with respect. Voodoo teaches us how to fulfil our desires, mete out revenge and gain personal power.

In Doktor Snake’s gripping personal account, he recalls many anecdotes from his own odyssey through voodoo. From deals made with the Devil to illnesses miraculously cured. Some tales will send a chill through you, while many others are simply outrageous. There is also a chapter investigating the legend that 1930s bluesman Robert Johnson sold his soul to the devil in exchange for guitar expertise and fame.

Richly illustrated, Doktor Snake’s Voodoo Spellbook is published by St Martin’s Press in the U.S. and by Connections in the U.K.

What People Say


“Everyone should read this book and open up their mind.” A 12-year old reader from Indiana, USA.

“Read this book, if it’s the only book you ever read, and feel the other worlds which hover in the words. Doktor Snake is a true mystic and – if you dare – his vision will lead you into places you never dreamed of.” Reader from Uruguay.

“i absolutely adore this book!!! It is a bit non-traditional, and may even seem fantasy based. But it is very inspiring, and i will say from personal experience that some of the spell work in this book has worked for ’me’. It is simple to understand, enchanting, and keeps you on the edge of your seat. i read it straight thru…” Reader from Austin, Texas.

“I just love the stories. There are a few good spells for money luck. That’s what I was interested in myself. I love the section on playing cards also. I love the stories about selling your soul to the devil to play guitar. Super book! Very neat. I totally recommend. I am buying one for all my soul sisters for X-mas. Dr. Snake write another book!!!!!” Reader from Las Vegas.

“I bought this book a few weeks ago as a sceptic. But after reading it through I had a dream to go to the casino. I went the next day and won $200.00. Boy was I happy.” Reader from Toronto, Canada.

“Well I liked it. And I am an old Mage… I think it is an important piece of Voodoo culture… Doctor Snake marvelously disguised this book so that children and young sojourners would be only able to pluck from this delightful Tome. However those that are better versed in the old Traditions will garner many more nuances from this synchretic Voodoo and realize that some of the so-called simple aspects of Ritualism are incredibly important to be able to gain the understanding of the many Mysteries and secret understandings within this seemingly entertaining book. This book has many basic foundations that are the building blocks for any Ritual in the Cosmos, from here you can go anywhere…” Reader from the USA.
