Reviews

"An eye-opening and chilling look into the minds of brutal murderers...Douglas succeeds in taking readers inside his own mind as he worked to understand 'four killers [he] confronted'...separating fact from fiction, Douglas adds to lay readers' understanding of human evil."--- Publishers Weekly
"This fascinating and haunting expert account helps us understand why the most shocking homicides occur... [this] will be of particularly urgent interest."--- Booklist starred review
"[A] must read for everyone wanting to understand the minds of depraved serial killers. Once again John Douglas walks into rooms most of us would shun in our worst nightmares and comes back with remarkable insight into what type of person perpetrates such horrible acts."--New York Journal of Books on The Killer Across the Table
