During his twenty-five year career with the Investigative Support Unit, Special Agent John Douglas became a legendary figure in law enforcement, pursuing some of the most notorious and sadistic serial killers of our time: the man who hunted prostitutes for sport in the woods of Alaska, the Atlanta child murderer, and Seattle's Green River killer, the case that nearly cost Douglas his life. As the model for Jack Crawford in The Silence of the Lambs, Douglas has confronted, interviewed, and studied scores of serial killers and assassins, including Charles Manson, Ted Bundy, and Ed Gein, who dressed himself in his victims' peeled skin.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Mr. Douglas sets out to produce a good true-crime book, but because of his insights and the power of his material, he gives us more—he leaves us shaken, gripped by a quiet grief for the innocent victims and anguished by the human condition.”  Dean Koontz, New York Times bestselling author
“A quirky, winning tale of awful crimes and awe-inspiring detective work…Douglas knows what all the great crime writers know—that the criminologist must be at least as interesting as the crime. On that score, Douglas fits the profile.”  USA Today
“A fascinating journey into the thrill killer’s psyche…Douglas seems to have a true gift of instinct. Mindhunter is gripping.”  Dayton Daily News
“The gripping story of Douglas’ career as an FBI field agent…becomes a compelling audiobook—especially when paired with Richard M. Davidson’s gritty and emotionally resonant narration…This truly memorable production immediately engages the listener.”  AudioFile
