very detailed but interesting if this what you are interested in. this is what real life is about.

Best read on Profiling

Criminal psychology and profiling are my areas of biggest interest in the realm of true crime. As I have a library of over 50 books on this and related topics I certainly feel qualified to write reviews on these books. This book is devided into two parts. The first is a collection eleven odd articles from various bulletins and law enforcement magazines. Put simply, as the book tiltles them, this is a collection of the well known Original Behavioural Science Articles on Criminal Profiling. They are written by the 'who's who' from the era often referred to as 'The Golden Age of Profilers'. For this reason alone the book is well worth 'the price of admission.' Part two covers comtemporary articles on Criminal Profiling. The topices are wide and varied covering such topics as Forensic Linguistics, Geographic Profiling to Assaultive Eye Injury and Enucleation. I wondered how interested I would be in Forensic Linguistics but found the chapter facinating. I feel most readers with an interest in the topic will find part one just great. In part two, since it covers such a wide range of areas I guess it's possible the odd chapter may not appearl to all. The other plus here is the fact the book is broken into distinct articles by the editors so you can 'peice read' or do a 'cover to cover'. I see the book as appealing to law inforcemnet personel, people like myself who don't work in law inforcement but have to deal with perpitrators and their victims and finally all those who enjoy the topic. If I were forced to give up my entire library and keep just one book this would nearly have to be the one. A great book, well done to Campbell and DeNevi, the editors.

The best read I have found in a long time

I was so enthralled in this book I could not stop reading it. There is so much information on so many different cases and scenarios. I am working toward being a forensic psychologist this book was FANTASTICK

Compiles articles from fifteen internationally recognized homicide investigators

The concept of criminal profiling, once alien to the ordinary American, is today a part of our daily lives thanks to television shows and news programs, and Profilers: Leading Investigators Take You Inside The Criminal Mind compiles articles from fifteen internationally recognized homicide investigators, many of whom have contributed some of the basics to the art of profiling criminals. From dealing with hostage situations and murder to creating psychological profiles and geographic profiles, Profilers provides plenty of inside detail and will appeal not only to fans of true crime and murder mysteries, but those involved in law enforcement at many levels.

Mystery Writers Take Note:

If you're writing about murder, serial murder, spree murder, profiling, profiling from the crime scene, or the uses of forensic linguistics, you must read this book. There are a hundred novels that can be written about the "phases of the crime" alone.
