He has hunted some of the most notorious and sadistic criminals of our time: The Trailside Killer in San Francisco, the Atlanta Child murderer. He has confronted, interviewed and researched dozens of serial killers and assassins -- including Charles Manson, Richard Speck, John Wayne Gacy, and James Earl Ray -- for a landmark study to understand their motives. To get inside their minds.

He is Special Agent John Douglas, the model for law enforcement legend Jack Crawford in Thomas Harris's thrillers Red Dragon and The Silence of the Lambs, and the man who ushered in a new age in behavorial science and criminal profiling. Recently retired after 25 years of service, John Douglas can finally tell his unique and compelling story.

With journalist Mark Olshaker, he gives us a behind the scenes look at his fascinating career, revisiting his journeys into the dark recesses and calculated madness present only in our worst nightmares. This is the true-crime work everyone has been waiting for -- by the Mind Hunter himself.

    " This is the book that got me hooked on John Douglas. "

    " I first read this in college in my Intro to Psychology class in 2001. I had nightmares for weeks but was strangely drawn to it and kept it on my bookcase for 8 years and here I am rereading it again. Apparently, I've been quite desensitized to the material. Whether it be from watching too many hours of A & E and Crime TV or whether my profession working with juveniles for the Department of Corrections is to blame, I am uncertain. Only one story had me reeling this time. Douglas paints a bleak picture, touching on many serial killers, murderers, and rapists. Do I fully agree with what Mr. Douglas is saying about profiling? I'm not sure. Some things are pretty generic and seem to be resultant of common sense. Did others use these techniques before Douglas? Again I don't know. Overall a compelling read but not for those who are squeemish. "

    " Great read, but not just for story time. It reads something like a textbook or instructional, but is a great insight into profilers. "

    " A fascinating book! John Douglas takes us through a good handful of cases he worked in the time he spent with the FBI's profiling unit, and describes the people he interacted with and the process of coming up with a criminal profile and all the details that go into it. "
