This book offers interesting examples of criminal profiling and how it works, step-by-step instructions for "molester-proofing" your children, and a profile of the murderer of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman that nails O.J. But most of the crimes described in this book are older and less famous, so I did not find it as riveting in that way as Cases That Haunt Us.

The author works in the behavioral unit of the FBI and comments about true crime that has happened. If you like the thinking analytical side of true crime you will love this book. I did.

John Douglas was with the FBI for 25 years. He's co-wrote another book with Mark Olshaker entitled "Mind Hunter." And they've outdown themselves this time! I'm afraid to give something away so here is the back cover:

Great exploration into the minds of killers. Douglas always does a great job of getting his point across without getting caught up in tech details or courtroom drama.
