For twenty-five years, John E. Douglas worked for the FBI, where he headed the elite Investigative Support Unit. He's had a brilliant and terrifying career, getting inside the minds of notorious murderers and serial killers. Through a series of character-driven case histories--from the earliest trials in Salem, Massachusetts, to the bungled trial of Amanda Knox--Douglas shows what happens when the system breaks down and bias, media coverage, and other influences get in the way of a dispassionate pursuit of the evidence. Here also are Douglas' personal reflections on his ongoing search for the truth, from painful lessons learned early in his career to his controversial findings in the West Memphis Three and JonBenet Ramsey investigations.

The book was very interesting in the beginning. I really got hooked when talking about specific cases especially ones I was familar with. However at times the book seem to drag on as there was a ton of information to try and digest.

Another amazing book, by the authors of Mindhunter. This delves into the current cases that John Douglas has consulted on, including the West Memphis Three. Good read for those who like true crime.

If you enjoy TV shows like Criminal Minds,CSI you will love this book. It is about real life murders and how they were solved or why they weren't solved. It gives the reader a different perspective of people that were thought to be guilty or the public image that they were guilty,like in the Jon Bonet case. Excellent read
