Just as it happened in The Silence of the Lambs, Ressler uses the evidence at a crime scene to put together a psychological profile of the killers. From the victims they choose, to the way they kill, to the often grotesque souvenirs they take with them--Ressler unlocks the identities of these vicious killers for the police to capture.
And with his discovery that serial killers share certain violent behavior, Ressler's gone behind prison walls to hear the bizarre first-hand stories of countless convicted murderers. Getting inside the mind of a killer to understand how and why he kills, is one of the FBI's most effective ways of helping police bring in killers who are still at large.
True-crime author Anne Rule calls this "the real thing . . . absolutely mesmerizing." The FBI expert who coined the term "serial killer" and advised Thomas Harris on The Silence of the Lambs tells how he uses evidence from a crime scene to construct a psychological profile of the killer--and unlock the secret of their identities. 8 pages of photos. Martin's.
