Dark and disturbing…
“Mindhunter” is the true story of FBI agent John Douglas, one of the founders of criminal profiling. His interviews with killers are dark, disturbing, and somehow a little sad. A must-read for any fan of the Netflix adaptation.

Description

After spending twenty five years working in the FBI Investigative Support Unit, John E. Douglas is finally retired and ready to share his fascinating behind-the-scenes chronicle based on the psychological profiling that he used to dive deep into the minds of the countries most hunted serial killers and criminals.

Douglas, nicknamed the Mindhunter, takes readers on a wild journey through some of the most gruesome, captivating, and difficult cases that he faced, often delving deep into the dark corners of our worst nightmares.

Through a long and successful career, Special Agent John Douglas eventually joined the Investigative Support Unit, becoming a renowned figure in law enforcement. While in ISU, Douglas pursued and matched wits with some of the most sadistic serial killers of our time: a man who hunted prostitutes for sport in the woods of Alaska, the Atlanta child murderer, and even Seattle’s Green River killer, a case on which Douglas almost paid the ultimate price with his life.

Now a Netflix original series, Mindhunter contains the interviews and stories from when Douglas studied scores of serial killers and assassins, such as Charles Manson, Ted Bundy, and Ed Gein - a man who liked to dress himself up in his victims’ peeled flesh.
