Mindhunter by John E. Douglas

Clear rating
There's a Netflix show based (loosely) on this book, and since I just finished the second season, I went back and re-read the book. It's a decent read, bit dry in places, more of a memoir than anything. I would have liked more detail on a lot of the ...more

Mindhunter by John E. Douglas
In the case of every horrible crime since the beginning of civilization, there is always that searing, fundamental question: what kind of person could have done such a thing? The type of profiling and crime-scene analysis we do at the FBI’s Investigative Support Unit attempts to answer that question.
