Recommended for: criminal minds fans, people who like to read about crime
Read from January 03 to 10, 2012

An informative read on serial killers, their method of killing and how they were eventually caught (or not). The book breaks it down into several sections outlining how a criminal profiler would use information gathered at the scene of the crime to compose a picture of who the criminal could be.

It gives a lot of basic backgrounds on a lot of killer. There are a lot of the well known ones (such as Dalmer, Jack the Ripper and others) as well as lesser known killers. It's a great book if you want to know more about how profilers operate but if you want a lot more details about the killers and their background you aren't going to get it here.
