Publisher's Summary

He has hunted some of the most notorious and sadistic criminals of our time: The Trailside Killer in San Francisco, the Atlanta Child murderer. He has confronted, interviewed and researched dozens of serial killers and assassins -- including Charles Manson, Richard Speck, John Wayne Gacy, and James Earl Ray -- for a landmark study to understand their motives. To get inside their minds.
He is Special Agent John Douglas, the model for law enforcement legend Jack Crawford in Thomas Harris's thrillers Red Dragon and The Silence of the Lambs, and the man who ushered in a new age in behavorial science and criminal profiling. Recently retired after 25 years of service, John Douglas can finally tell his unique and compelling story.
With journalist Mark Olshaker, he gives us a behind the scenes look at his fascinating career, revisiting his journeys into the dark recesses and calculated madness present only in our worst nightmares. This is the true-crime work everyone has been waiting for -- by the Mind Hunter himself.

Need the unabridged version!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

For true crime buffs, this is a must read. This is the guy who created the Behavioral Science Unit at Quantico (though it's called something else now, this is the most recognizable title). Definitely recommend this for anyone interested in criminal profiling, FBI, law enforcement, serial killers, and again, true crime.


Any additional comments?

I really, really wish there were an unabridged version of this.

Abridged Mind Hunter needed more story

I was bummed out when I realized this story was "un"abridged. I wanted to hear more of his process and case files.

When I was a kid I'd love to have anyone to read to me, now I've grown picky I was thinking when I spend money I want to hear a pro. However John didn't have an unpleasant voice and it was okay. Next time get a professional narrator.
