Overview

Between Good and Evil: A Master Profiler's Hunt for Society's Most Violent Predators by Roger L. Depue, Susan Schindehette

He was a pioneer in modern law enforcement, a trailblazing leader in the hunt for serial killers. But after decades of staring deep into the darkness, he entered a seminary to search for the good... BETWEEN GOOD AND EVIL No one gets closer to evil than a criminal profiler, trained to penetrate the hearts and minds of society's most vicious psychopaths. And no one is a more towering figure in the world of criminal profilers than Roger L. Depue. Chief of the FBI Behavioral Science Unit at a time when its innovative work first came to prominence, he headed a renowned team of mind hunters that included John Douglas, Robert Ressler, and Roy Hazelwood. In a subbasement sixty feet under the Academy gun vault in Quantico, he broke new ground with analytical techniques and training programs that are still used today. After retiring from the FBI, he founded an elite forensics group that consulted on high-profile cases, including the Martha Moxley and JonBenet Ramsey murders, and the Columbine school shootings. But coming face-to-face with the darkest deeds human beings are capable of took a horrific toll. After suffering a devastating personal loss, Depue, on the brink of despair, walked away from the outside world and joined a seminary. For three years this was his safe haven, a place where he exorcised personal demons and found a refuge from terrifying memories of real-life monsters. And it was there, while counseling maximum security inmates, that he rediscovered the capacity for goodness in people, and made the decision to return to the world to resume his work. Here is Depue's extraordinary personal account, from growing up as a police officer's son to tracking down some of today's most brutal murderers. With its harrowing descriptions of human depravity and passionate call to fight against evil, BETWEEN GOOD AND EVIL is both a riveting dispatch from the front lines of a war against human predators...and the powerful story of one man's journey between darkness and redemption.

Unlike any true crime book ever written. It's every bit the page-turner that The Silence of the Lambs is, and its depiction of predators and their crimes is just gut-wrenching. But beyond this it is a profound exploration of the nature of evil in our time, and at once fills you with dread and hope for the future. I read it in one sitting and I'll never forget it.

The first night I read this book I read 100 pages. It was absolutely gripping. The attention to detail was great along with the authors interpretation. I highly recommend this book.

This book was the best crime book I have read so far. I really felt inspired by his story to volunteer, and offer my skills to help others. I think that everyone intrested in a career in the FBI or the crimminal justice system should read this book. It really does show that in this world there is a struggle between good and evil and that no matter how much evil in this world, there is also good, and that it is up to us to share our skills and knowledge for the better good.

I couldn't put it down. This book is an amazing piece of work written by a truely amazing man. If you really want to gain an idea about some the evils the world produces and the heros who fight against them, read this book. It is one of those books that you sit down with and before you konw it you are 100 pages into it.

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.
