Profilers : Leading Investigators Take You Inside The Criminal Mind
The popularity of television shows and movies like Profiler, CSI, and The Silence of the Lambs has made the concept of criminal profiling familiar to most Americans. Though such dramas follow the general approach of real-life criminal investigative analysis, artistic license often results in a simplistic and sensationalistic image of the complex work of profilers. In this compilation of expert articles internationally recognized homicide investigators, most of them pioneers in developing the science and the art of profiling, share their insights gained from years of experience tracking the perpetrators of some of the most notorious crimes.
Among the subjects discussed are:
dealing with hostage situations
child abduction and murder in the David Meirhofer case
interviewing Jeffrey Dahmer
the challenges of creating psychological profiles
the use of forensic linguistics to track the Unabomber
assaultative eye injury ("enucleation")
A must for readers of true crime, forensic investigations, and murder mysteries, this unique collection of revealing articles offers a chilling and unparalleled glimpse into the workings of the criminal mind.
"A bone-chilling conversation with Jeffrey Dahmer is just one highlight from this anthology of seasoned examinations of one of law enforcement's grimmest challenges.... a no-nonsense, technically oriented but readable look at how cops grapple with the worst felonies, including hostage taking, serial rape and murder, and child abduction/murder....a rigorous and disturbing collection, accessible but compiled with law enforcement professionals in mind."
