During his twenty-five year career with the Investigative Support Unit, Special
Agent John Douglas became
a legendary figure in law enforcement, pursuing some of the most notorious and
sadistic serial killers of
our time: the man who hunted prostitutes for sport in the woods of Alaska, the
Atlanta child murderer, and
Seattle's Green River killer, the case that nearly cost Douglas his life.
As the model for Jack Crawford in The Silence of the Lambs, Douglas has
confronted, interviewed,
and studied scores of serial killers and assassins, including Charles Manson,
Ted Bundy, and Ed Gein, who
dressed himself in his victims' peeled skin. Using his uncanny ability to
become both predator and prey,
Douglas examines each crime scene, reliving both the killer's and the victim's
actions in his mind, creating
their profiles, describing their habits, and predicting their next moves.
Now, in chilling detail, the legendary Mindhunter takes us behind the scenes of
some of his most gruesome,
fascinating, and challenging cases -- and into the darkest recesses of our
worst nightmares.
