Hazelwood helped found the FBI's Violent Criminal Apprehension Program along with Robert Ressler and John Douglas, who have both written best sellers on the subject. Now it's his turn.

    To much about Roy.

    No offense but I didn't want to read a biography about Mr. Hazelwood. I wanted to learn about predators. To much about Roy. Stick to the title next time.

    Lack details

    I didn't finish reading this book. After the second chapter (The Lonely Hearts Killer), I gave up on this book as the discussion on Harvey Glatman, the Lonely Hearts Killer was not comprehensive. The book didn't discuss in detail of Harvey Glatman's killings and how he was caught. The first chapter (His Influence is Everywhere) is an account of Stephen Michaud meeting with Roy Hazelwood. Who really cares? The book is titled 'The Evil That Men Do' so let's get to the Evil instead of your party with Roy Hazelwood. For a detailed discussion on Harvey Glatman, the Lonely Hearts Killer, read Signature Killers by Robert Keppel.

    Loved it!

    I loved this book. I am a 3rd year college student, currently interested in being a medical examiner, and some day retiring as a criminal profiler. This book gave me insight, and made the career more appealing to me. If you get bored with the book at first, stay with it, it picks up. The only thing I would want Roy to change would be, to put the pictures in the book in color. I am also going to cut open dead people for the rest of my life, so I may a 'special' case!

    Excellent Book !!!

    They will take you thru a disturbing journey, where you will be walking aside the criminal themselves without every leaving your home. Make sure to lock your doors and windows, and to leave a little night light on.

    Excellent Reading

    This book gave an excellent insite into the career of a criminal profiler. Roy Hazelwood is an amazing man who peaked my interest and curiosity. After reading this book, I have decided to change my future career path from psychology to criminal psychology with hopes to be a criminal profiler some day. His definition of the organized and disorganized criminal is absoultely brilliant yet simple to understand. I am extremely happy that this book was written because it has opened new doors to my future. This was an outstanding book that I could not put down. I highly recommend it to anyone who has any interest in understanding why a criminal does what he does, especially the sexual criminal.

    The best book ever written.

    This is the book to read if you are insterested in the mind of serial killer. It will give the detail of the crime and how they did it. I will also give the reactions of the victims, the one's that are still alive. This one the best books that I have ever readed, and I recommended for people that like this kind of action.

    Fascinating and Frightening

    I am more informed as a result of reading this book. It saddens me that there are these stories to tell. I found the information about the FBI buracracy funny. This was a well done project along the lines of the John Douglas books.
