Overview

There is only one John Douglas.

We first met Douglas in Mindhunter, which told the story of his brilliant and terrifying with the FBI until his retirement in 1995. And now, again with coauthor Mark Olshaker, he goes even further. We accompany him on the Journey Into Darkness that marks every case he examines; every instance in which he helps police identify the unknown perpetrator of a violent series of rapes, kidnappings, or murders through his remarkable criminal personality profiling.

In this fascinating audio experience, we journey with some of the brilliant and sensitive agents John has trained, who have carried on his work. We take a startlingly fresh look at the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman as if John had been asked by the LAPD to identify the killer through behavioral profiling. And we hear how a lifetime around killers and their victims has shaped his views on justice and punishment.

The Journey Into Darkness is a perilous one, but ultimately a hopeful one as well. For not only do we see from the men and women who track the most sadistic of criminals what a powerful weapon profiling has become, we also get advice on how we might better keep our children, our families and ourselves safe from harm. By making the Journey Into Darkness with John Douglas and his colleagues, we come away with an insight into the human condition that no one else can offer.

The world's top pioneer and expert on criminal profiling--the author of the international bestseller Mindhunter--delves further into the criminal mind in a range of chilling new cases. Profiling suspects from O.J. Simpson to the Unabomber, Douglas reveals the fascinating circumstances of each crime in detail as he explores the larger issues, including crime prevention and rehabilitation. 16 pp. of photos. 384 pp. National ads. 10-city author tour. 25-city radio satellite tour. 150,000 print.

    Excellent Book

    This Book gives a lot of insight, and in depth detail into Not only the Crimes, but the Victims and the Criminals as well. A must read for anyone interested in criminal Profiling.

    Former S.A. Douglas is my IDOL !!!

    I own all of the books written by John Edward Douglas. I have read them all @ least twice. As a Criminology major and Certified Criminal Profiler, Douglas has been THE inspiration for my forthcoming career. 'Journey Into Darkness' is a terrific read for anyone interested in the topic of human monsters. Most heart--wrenching is the story of the homicide of Lance Corporal Suzanne M. Collins. Douglas writes about this w/ empathy yet he can seperate emotion from fact, which is pivotal in our profession. To those who buy this must--have book, buy the hardcover--not the mass market paperback. A Douglas book is worth collecting forever. I wouldn't give up my Douglas collection ( many out of print ) for millions of dollars !

    Overwhelming...

    Reading this book made me realize the endless filth the men and women who work in this field are constantly exposed to. The criminals they deal with over the course of their lifetime of work are truly evil, vile, and disgusting. They lie, they manipulate and they use the foulest language to describe their innocent victims, after committing the most henious of crimes. I can't thank the members of law enforcement enough, regardless of their branch of service, for the work they do day in and day out. Truly, thank you, for your incredible devotion, and the immeasurable sacrifices each of you make to put these people behind bars and keep them there.

    A retired suit cashing in...

    This book is dated yet somewhat entertaining. The profiler, Silence of the Lambs fad is done so it's a bit lame. This guy never caught, cuffed or jailed any serial killer. It's all half ass psychology stuff that kinda helped and really misled several major cases. I guess they stare at police crime scene photos and read reports all day and make general deductions and points towards them. It's pretty stupid but it was a bit cool some years ago. Whatever...it's good for students and hopeful "profilers." For whatever purpose it may serve...

    soething we must know

    this book has been entertaining in such a way that it has enough scare in it like a movie but also very informative. i truly believe that we should all know what to fear from people around us, as they say a little awareness dont hurt and who better to tell us about it aside from the expert, the author himself!

    another great book from Mr. Douglas

    I have yet to read a book by John Douglas that I didn't enjoy or found easy to put down. This is a truly thought provoking book with chilling stories that will really bring insight to Criminal Profiling.

    great book

    I think John Douglas has the most amazing mind. He really gets down in the depths in this one and pulls out all the stops. He gets into some stuff that he didn't really cover in MindHunter but as always, an amazing book to read and keeps you engrossed the whole time. I would definately recommend it to anyone to read.
