Publisher's Summary

Violent, provocative, shocking. Call them what you will, but don't call them open and shut.
Did Lizzie Borden murder her own father and stepmother? Was Jack the Ripper actually the Duke of Clarence? Who killed JonBenet Ramsey? America's foremost expert on criminal profiling and 25-year FBI veteran John Douglas, along with author and filmmaker Mark Olshaker, explores those tantalizing questions and more in this mesmerizing work of detection. With uniquely gripping analysis, the authors reexamine and reinterpret the accepted facts, evidence, and victimology of the most notorious murder cases in the history of crime, including the Lindbergh baby kidnapping, the Zodiac Killer, and the Whitechapel murders. Utilizing techniques developed by Douglas himself, they give detailed profiles and reveal chief suspects in pursuit of what really happened in each case. The Cases That Haunt Us not only offers convincing and controversial conclusions, it deconstructs the evidence and widely held beliefs surrounding each case and rebuilds them - with fascinating, surprising, and haunting results.

John Douglas is AMAZING

This book is incredible. It is insightful, balanced and completely enthralling. John Douglas does the job we all are fascinated with but deep down we could never do. Facts and evidence seem so obvious after he explains them to you and he makes you feel like you found them yourself. This was the last of all of his books I have " read" and actually read, and I hope he does more, his brain is the Alexandra's Library of crime. I wish I could give this book more stars.

Dated but interesting

John Douglas' coverage of older cases like Jack the Ripper, Lizzie Borden and the Zodiac Killer are really interesting and well thought out. Obviously he offers no concrete evidence one way or another which is annoying if you are looking for answers. His insight into the JonBenet Ramsey case shows it's age as there's been a lot more interest and evidence emerging in 2016. He very clearly doesn't think the family had anything to do with it and reaches to make evidence fit his interpretation.
