During his twenty-five year career with the Investigative Support Unit, Special Agent John Douglas became a legendary figure in law enforcement, pursuing some of the most notorious and sadistic serial killers of our time: the man who hunted prostitutes for sport in the woods of Alaska, the Atlanta child murderer, and Seattle's Green River killer, the case that nearly cost Douglas his life. As the model for Jack Crawford in The Silence of the Lambs, Douglas has confronted, interviewed, and studied scores of serial killers and assassins, including Charles Manson, Ted Bundy, and Ed Gein, who dressed himself in his victims' peeled skin. Using his uncanny ability to become both predator and prey, Douglas examines each crime scene, reliving both the killer's and the victim's actions in his mind, creating their profiles, describing their habits, and predicting their next moves. Now, in chilling detail, the legendary Mindhunter takes us behind the scenes of some of his most gruesome, fascinating, and challenging cases -- and into the darkest recesses of our worst nightmares.

5.0 Mind Hunter : Inside the FBI's Elite Serial Crime Unit
Ok, this is pure wow. The fact that the author doesn't adopt the 'holier than thou stance' so common with law enforcement makes this an extremely enjoyable as well as worthwhile read.Q:In high school, I was already six foot two, which I used to my advantage. Talent-wise, we were a so-so team in a go...

3.0 Mindhunter: Inside the FBI's Elite Serial Crime Unit
Interesting read. This guy was at the heart of the development of the profiling unit of the FBI, and reading about how he developed his techniques for understanding the mind of a serial killer (largely a process of semi-educated trial and error) was pretty fascinating. I don't know how much his co...

3.0 Mindhunter: Inside the FBI's Elite Serial Crime Unit
It's all clever-clever psychology and FBI, until you discover that the profiling thing doesn't actually work to catch criminals and that half the predictions are wrong.
