Summary
Now a Netflix original series

Discover the classic, behind-the-scenes chronicle of John E. Douglas’ twenty-five-year career in the FBI Investigative Support Unit, where he used psychological profiling to delve into the minds of the country’s most notorious serial killers and criminals.

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.

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.

John douglas is a never ending fountain of knowledge and compassion and the narrator capture the essence of the book very well! J.douglas mix of teaching, grim tales and a tiny bit of humor makes this hard to put on pause cause i never want it to end!!

Must read for any and all true crime fans. John Douglas is such a character, it took a minute for me to accept and understand him. I grew to like him, faults and all. I learned so much from this audiobook, and I had thought I knew it all. A fun and insightful listen.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book , as a psychology mayor that did his dissertation on psychopathic personality , it only made me wish I knew about this book when I was working on mi report ... so much insight , analysis and experiences ... I really not consider myself a true crime fan ... there's noting to be fanatical about it ... innocent people die horribly everyday. and to me there's nothing interesting about that .., but when it comes to the science and profiling of this monsters im all for it ... this is a really we must deal with everyday ... and the tools and information given by the author are welcome.
