THE BESTSELLING TRUE STORY THAT INSPIRED THE MAJOR NETFLIX SERIESFBI 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 A cracker of a book – Esquire

New cases, but a little too focused on Douglas himself I find forensic psychology absolutely fascinating and this book just fuelled my interest!The book is well written and maps the history of the FBI unit as well as John Douglas’ career.

I found the book actually got better the more I read and I am now looking … I purchased this book recently having read the rave reviews received for the series of the same name on Netflix. I am an avid thriller reader and fascinated by most things related to crime so found this account by John Edward Douglas who is a former United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agent and one of the first criminal profilers a very informative read. He recounts some of the cases he has dealt with, many of which are house old names such as Charles Manson and Ted Bundy and…

Annoying.. What should have been a really interesting read is marred by the fact that Douglas is so self congratulating its detracts from the cases. He only goes very loosely into how the profiles are formed – most of the time he seems to just “magically” come up with the goods ( and he’s always right…!)Too much about the journey of the man and not enough about the science for my liking
