There is only one John Douglas.

We first met Douglas in Mindhunter, which told the story of his brilliant and terrifying with the FBI until his retirement in 1995. And now, again with coauthor Mark Olshaker, he goes even further. We accompany him on the Journey Into Darkness that marks every case he examines; every instance in which he helps police identify the unknown perpetrator of a violent series of rapes, kidnappings, or murders through his remarkable criminal personality profiling.

In this fascinating audio experience, we journey with some of the brilliant and sensitive agents John has trained, who have carried on his work. We take a startlingly fresh look at the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman as if John had been asked by the LAPD to identify the killer through behavioral profiling. And we hear how a lifetime around killers and their victims has shaped his views on justice and punishment.

The Journey Into Darkness is a perilous one, but ultimately a hopeful one as well. For not only do we see from the men and women who track the most sadistic of criminals what a powerful weapon profiling has become, we also get advice on how we might better keep our children, our families and ourselves safe from harm. By making the Journey Into Darkness with John Douglas and his colleagues, we come away with an insight into the human condition that no one else can offer. Download and start listening now!

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Danesh | 2/19/2014

    " avid watchers of id discovery and ci network will want to read this book. the stories can get one on edge or push one towards paranoia given the sometimes random nature of the crimes, but the author does a good job of presenting the numbers as tools against this kind of thinking (one should focus more on the probability of a crime occurring and the type of victim/situation/etc.). i enjoyed the social psychological aspect that the author implemented, but it seemed superficial and chastising at times as if he was mad at the public. toward the end of the book it seemed to hit a bump. it seemed to repeat itself. he did explain his view of human nature, however it escapes me at the moment (the little i think i can remember claims that people can be bad, but some are evil. of those few can be helped, but most cannot). from that (recalled argument) his political point is based on. the cases were presented well to get into the mind of a profiler and where to focus one's efforts if they wanted to pursue the interest.

    " It's factual while still maintaining a personal touch, it's really intense and interesting, giving us an insight into what their FBI team had to deal with on a daily level. I loved every moment of it. "

    " Although the author leads with promised stories of the "most terrifying serial criminals", the book is padded with more general information on personal safety and some factoids on criminals, especially murderers. "
