Publisher's Summary

The FBI's Legendary Profiler Probes the Psyches of Killers, Rapists, and Stalkers and Their Victims and Tells How to Fight Back
In Obsession, John Douglas once again takes us fascinatingly behind the scenes, focusing his expertise on predatory crimes, primarily against women. With a deep sense of compassion for the victims and an uncanny understanding of the perpetrators, Douglas looks at the obsessions that lead to rape, stalking, and sexual murder through such cases as Ronnie Shelton, the serial rapist who terrorized Cleveland, and New York's notorious "Preppie Murder".

Short but very interesting

This was a very short book but interesting and informative. Douglas mentions several interesting cases of rapists and stalkers, and how they profile them to eventually catch them. A great read for anyone who's interested in some of the psychology behind these horrible acts. It's also great reading about how hard he's worked to put these criminals behind bars, and to keep developing ways to identify this behavior and prevent these crimes from happening.
