If you are interested in serial crime, this is a must have

At the end of this book you come away feeling as though you have been through a lot of this with Mr. Douglas, and you have a strong since of who Mr. Douglas and his team are.

If at some point you are not disturbed by this book there is something wrong. You find you...
At the end of this book you come away feeling as though you have been through a lot of this with Mr. Douglas, and you have a strong since of who Mr. Douglas and his team are.

If at some point you are not disturbed by this book there is something wrong. You find yourself feeling for, and with, John throughout the book. To start you find yourself in the middle of something that had to leave him shaken and worried. Then you have to follow the hard work (mentally and physically) that John had to go through to hone his craft. He truly proves to be one of the best ever in the business.

This is the first of John Douglas' books that I have read and I can't wait to dive in to the next one I can put my hands on.

If you have interest in true crime, serial killers, violent crime, or the hard work and stress that profilers have to go through, make sure you have this book, and when you are done keep it for reference. This book is fully indexed so it is easy to find what you are looking for.

For either the veteran true crime enthusiast or your first look into the dark underbelly of human race, make sure to pick up this book.

Meh

I read this book. It had some interesting information in it. I like the book but it seems that the author John Douglas likes to take credit for a lot of things that Robert Ressler did before him. The Author comes across as certifiably narcissistic.
