A LIFE DEVOTED TO FIGHTING EVIL
Hunter or hunted? If we were given a choice it seems probable that most of us would choose to be the hunter rather than the quarry. However, it sometimes occurs to me that both are fraught with danger. The hunted, quite obviously fears being captured. The one in pursuit of a criminal might fear for his life if he comes too close to a killer. So, for the pursuer there is fear, unbelievable stress, and sometimes utter horror at what human beings have done. As time passes, a culmination of these emotions might result in severe depression, which is precisely what happened to Roger Depue. He became so overcome by despair that he entered a seminary. He remained there for three years, healing and ridding himself of terrifying memories. With healing came a desire to return to the world and once more begin his task of tracking murderers by criminal profiling. He draws on his experiences as Deputy Chief of the FBI Behavioral Science Unit and a forensics group that he founded to tell his remarkable story. It is his group that was consulted in the murders of Martha Moxley and JonBenet Ramsey. Veteran theatre and film actor David Povall brings strength and empathetic understanding to this story of a man who has devoted his life to fighting evil. - Gail Cooke

One Of The Better Books Of This Genre
I'm about half way through (will probably finish tonight) and this book is interesting and well written. I'm hoping it maintains my interest as it gets even further into Depue's career. Should be a winner, judging thus far.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
