"It is mankind's most abominable crime: murder. No one is better acquainted with the subject and its wrenching challenges than John Douglas, the FBI's pioneer of criminal profiling, and the model for Agent Jack Crawford in 'The Silence of the Lambs.' In this provocative and deeply personal book, the most prominent criminal investigator of our time offers a rare look ino the workings not only of the justice system--but of his own heart and mind. Writing with award-winning partner Mark Olshaker, Douglas opens up about his most notorious and baffling cases--and shows what it's like to confront evil in its most monstrous form."--Back cover.

The book was very interesting in the beginning. I really got hooked when talking about specific cases especially ones I was familar with. However at times the book seem to drag on as there was a ton of information to try and digest.

Another amazing book, by the authors of Mindhunter. This delves into the current cases that John Douglas has consulted on, including the West Memphis Three. Good read for those who like true crime.

If you enjoy TV shows like Criminal Minds,CSI you will love this book. It is about real life murders and how they were solved or why they weren't solved. It gives the reader a different perspective of people that were thought to be guilty or the public image that they were guilty,like in the Jon Bonet case. Excellent read
