Publisher's Summary

Twenty-two years in the FBI, 16 of them as a member of the Bureau's Behavioral Science Unit. Thousands of homicides, rapes, suicides, and other gruesome crimes. Roy Hazelwood, like many investigators, has seen it all. But unlike most, he's gone further into the dark and twisted psyches of serial killers and sadistic sexual offenders and has emerged as one of the world's foremost experts on the sexual criminal.  

Now, acclaimed true-crime writer Stephen G. Michaud takes you into the heart of Hazelwood's work through dozens of startling cases, including those of the Lonely Heart Killer, the "Ken and Barbie" killings, and the Atlanta Child Murders. Here Michaud and Hazelwood go beyond the lurid details, to a deeper understanding of the depraved minds behind the grisly crimes, in a stark, startling, and fascinating work you will not soon forget.  

Contains mature themes.

Very Interesting!

Got my housework done for several days and learned a lot. This is my second book with this particular narrator, and I don’t believe I was crazy about him but once you finish the first book and you go to the second book it’s almost like you expect him to be talking to you about this subject.
All in all really enjoyed this one.

intriguing

Some of the language in this book can be confusing if you aren't familiar with the world of FBI profiling. I suggest starting off with some of John E Douglass works like, "Obsession" and then listening to this. But if you love anything with true crime or psychology you are going to love this read! this is one I could get to the end and just start all over. It"s that interesting!

FBI Crimes cases investigated by Roy Hazelwood

I enjoyed this book and the crimes it discussed. Of particular interest was the psychology behind the evil and the methods used to solve the cases. Much of the focus was on the fascinating career of Roy Hazelwood and the BSU.

Interesting and an enjoyable read.

I look forward to reading more books about Roy's work. He contributed so much in the behavior science field and his compassion is felt throughout the book.

highly disappointed!

I was hoping for an insight into the profiling of sex offenders, this was a hodge podge cobbling of random sex offenses, the author would start talking about one crime and criminal and then would change and talk about another. I really didn't like this book. the only good thing was that it did try to focus on victims, but not on profiling or catching the criminal. although I did like the final chapter.

A mess that really just didn't connect.

Disorganized to the of being painful. Random information thrown together to try and form a book to points where it felt like rambling branching from rambling.
