This book had a ton of potential. Unfortunately it didn't live up to it in my opinion. The title and the subtitle make it sound like it's going to detail epic battles of wits with forensic psychology vs. the dark recesses of the human soul. The description throws religion into the mix to cement the Good vs. Evil promise. What you get is more of an autobiography.

True crime/bio of Roger Depue, a pioneer in profiling of criminals. In his early days Roger was probably an unlikely candidate for the FBI, much less a noted scholar.

The most chilling kind of horror story (the real kind). This book gives you all the real crime stories, along with insight in to the minds of the killers and some sick humor by the killers. The author/main character starts the book off with some personal background, which I would have found boring and skipped through it, had he not been such a smart-a** and the book gets better, and darker, from there.
very intersting. It had high profile murders that I was aware of from the news. It kept the book very interesting.
