Format: Hardcover
This is one of the best profiling books I have read. It doesn't focus so much on the profiler's life as it does on actual case history, which is what I prefer. I never got bored with this one as I have with others that tend to focus on the feelings and sometimes the professional jelousies between the FBI profilers. I would love to read another book of case stories by this team.

Format: Hardcover
A very interesting look at the way a profiler creates his profiles of murderers and other criminals (most of whom seem to be mentally-ill). There are a number of spelling, grammatical, and other editing errors that sometimes make it confusing or hard-to-read. In a book produced by a publisher known for its scientific titles, I expected more care.

This book is very easy to read, I couldn't put it down (I read it in 4 hours).Very useful to public defenders, prosecutors, investigative officers, coroners, psychologists, etc. It gives a view of death investigations (forensics) as an art and not a science. The author takes you step by step through crime scenes depicting details that are gruesome and not for someone with a weak stomach. Overall, the author is very good and almost feels as if you are watching a horror movie. I recommend this book to anyone who works with death scenes, criminals and law enforcement.
