Discover the classic, behind-the-scenes chronicle of John E. Douglas' twenty-five-year career in the FBI Investigative Support Unit, where he used psychological profiling to delve into the minds of the country's most notorious serial killers and criminals.
In chilling detail, the legendary Mindhunter takes us behind the scenes of some of his most gruesome, fascinating, and challenging cases??and into the darkest recesses of our worst nightmares.

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. Using his uncanny ability to become both predator and prey, Douglas examines each crime scene, reliving both the killer's and the victim's actions in his mind, creating their profiles, describing their habits, and predicting their next mov

    Whoever Fights Monsters (tekijä: Robert K. Ressler) (Caramellunacy)
    Caramellunacy: Both are about early FBI profilers attempting to understand the minds of serial killers. Mindhunter is the more dramatically written while Whoever Fights Monsters included more specifics on profiling itself.

Unlike many readers, I came to the book "Mindhunter" because I wanted to watch the Netflix series. The book is filled with actual cases Douglas assisted with, so if you are a fan of true crime, you will enjoy it. I was intrigued by the novel techniques Douglas used to capture killers. His profiles were often spot-on, but he was also a pioneer of using the media to draw out criminals, and he also created some effective interrogation tactics. Some of the cases Douglas describes are familiar to fans. Once again, I recommend the book to any true crime fan for the wealth of law enforcement information. I loved reading about how Douglas and his team solved these terrible crimes. However, "Mindhunter" flags whenever Douglas inserts too much of his personality--primarily his ego--into it. He constantly boasts about how busy and successful he was, how he flouted FBI conventions to get things done, how he singlehandedly developed the profiling wing, how his profiles were never wrong, even things as unnecessary to the story as how successful he was with women and how attractive his wife was. I suppose it takes a great deal of confidence to create profiles of unsubs and pass them off to other law enforcement personnel, convinced of their accuracy. Douglas at one point also veers from his profiles and starts giving the reader his opinions on capital punishment and ways to fix the amount of violent crime in the US. He is of course entitled to his beliefs, and he has a lot of direct experience to base them on, but they do not always have a place in this book. Douglas never shows us any adversity. Except for one case (Green River killer), he never mentions a profile that did not work. He even depicts his relationship with his wife as more successful now than ever, even though she divorced him. And he talks up his TV appearances and the fact he advised Thomas Harris ("Tom") when Harris was writing books like "Silence of the Lambs." We get it: Douglas is awesome. But he never seems to realize that his ego and opinions take a backseat to the gruesome killers in this book and how the killers were ultimately caught in the end. I enjoyed this and may pick up book two in this series but I did not love it. ( )

Part autobiography, part true crime, and part history of the FBI’s development of criminal profiling, this book kept me absorbed while waiting in line, avoiding chores, and at the ballpark waiting for the game to start. Not only does the author discuss how their theories were developed and tested, he gives many examples from real cases.

It does have flaws, though. The casual, spoken-word style of narrative implies that this was ghost-written from recorded interview sessions and is a little off-putting. Douglas also chooses to only share examples where their profiles were a match to the killer, giving the impression that they were flawless in their predictions. I know that can’t possibly be the case, and the very fact that he offers this pretense of perfection makes the whole book a little suspect, whereas if he’d included an honest discussion of trial and error and the limitations of this work, or even where it can go badly wrong if misapplied, I’d have more confidence in the conclusions/assertions he forwards.

Paperback version, found in a fairly yellowed and tattered state at a used bookstore.

I read this book for the Booklikes Halloween Bingo 2019, for the square Serial/Spree Killer: A sub-genre of crime fiction that involves the detection of serial or spree killers. That, of course, is the whole point of this book. ( )

A must read for anyone interested in criminal profiling. ( )

This guy's life is so interesting. It's awesome finding out more about the cases he investigated. ( )
  Danielle.Desrochers | Oct 10, 2023 |
This could've been really good, but Douglas is preoccupied with self-hagiography, spending far more time painting himself as the smartest person in the room--or in the FBI--than explaining his work. ( )

To this day, the [Kris and Doug] Welles case remains one of the few on record in which intended victims of a serial killer were actually able to fight back and kill their attacker in self-defense. Their story is a miraculous one, and we have had them out several times to speak to classes at Quantico. This unassuming couple have been able to give us rare insight from the perspective of victims who became heroes. Having been to hell and back that night, they are amazingly warm, sensitive, and "together" people.

At the end of one of their presentations at Quantico, a police officer in the class asked them, "If Wayne Nance had lived and there was no death penalty -- that is, if he were still sharing the earth with you -- would you both be as mentally sound as you are now?"

They turned and looked at each other and then silently agreed on their response. "Almost definitely not," said Doug Welles. (Chapter 17, "Anyone Can Be a Victim", p. 361-362; Gallery Books, 2017)
The psychiatrist, who was around fifty, gave me a positive response [...] and said that Vanda could be ready for parole if this progress continued.

I asked him if he knew the specifics of what Vanda had done. "No, I don't want to know," he replied. [...] And he added, he didn't want to unfairly influence his relationship with the patient

Well doctor, let me tell you what Thomas Vanda did [...]

I finished my story about Vanda. "You're disgusting, Douglas!" the psychiatrist declared. "Get out of my office!"

"I'm disgusting?" I countered. "You're gonna be in a position to make a recommendation that Thomas Vanda is responding to therapy and could be freed, and you don't know who in the hell you're talking to when you're dealing with these inmates. How are you supposed to understand them when you haven't taken the time to look at the crime-scene photos or reports, to go over the autopsy protocols. [...] How in hell do you know if he's dangerous or not?" Chapter 18, "Battle of the Shrinks," p.364-365; Gallery Books, 2017)
