FBI Special Agent and expert in criminal profiling and behavioural science, John Douglas, is a man who has looked evil in the eye and made a vocation of understanding it. Now retired, Douglas can let us inside the FBI elite serial crime unit and into the disturbed minds of some of the most savage serial killers in the world.

The man who was the inspiration for Special Agent Jack Crawford in The Silence of the Lambs and who lent the film's makers his expertise explains how he invented and established the practice of criminal profiling; what it was like to submerge himself mentally in the world of serial killers to the point of 'becoming' both perpetrator and victim; and individual case histories including those of Jeffrey Dahmer, Charles Manson, Ted Bundy and the Atlanta child murders.

With the fierce page-turning power of a bestselling novel, yet terrifyingly true, Mindhunter is a true crime classic.

John Douglas knows more about serial killers than anybody in the world - Jonathan Demme, Director of The Silence of the Lambs

    I read this book in hardback copy a few years ago and as often happens I subsequently lent the book to a friend and then forgot who I'd lent it to and lost it ! I have always been interested in real life crime books and documentaries and have to say that I found this book fascinating to read.The content and details of the various cases that John Douglas worked on and describes in this book is at times unbelievably hard to comprehend but utterly compelling.There is also a chapter on how parents can use the experience of John Douglas's work and in depth knowledge of how serial killers operate to protect there own children and also how people in general can protect themselves by understanding situations that could make themselves vulnerable and avoiding such situations as much as they can. I have been looking forward to reading this book again and and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone although be aware that If I didn't know that the details in this book were true I would think that it was absurd,such is the depravity of some of the killers described.Overall a must for my new iPad,enjoy.
