Douglas must have been a riveting instructor at Quantico. He can explain the differences among serial and spree killers and mass murderers, among arsonists and bombers, among the many criminals we ignore until they do too much damage too close to home, in language the layperson can understand. He peppers his "lectures" with enough real cases to keep our attentionreal cases, after all, are the reason a reader chooses a book by John Douglas instead of a novel. Douglas's supposed arrogance aside, he tells a darn good story.
