  • Mindhunter

    Mindhunter is the first book that I have read from this author and it was very different from books that I would normally read. This True Crime book shows what it was like to work in the Behavioural Science unit of the FBI, from the start of the unit opening to it’s subsequent expansion and development from the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s, all told from the point of view of John E. Douglas (a former FBI Special Agent in criminal profiling and behavioural science) takes us on a journey into the minds of the most evil criminals: Charles Manson, Ted Bundy and the Atlanta child murders but to name a few. This book looks more that the psychology of what makes a killer a serial killer, what makes them tick and what makes them different from your ‘average’ human being. I wouldn’t say this is an enjoyable book, but it is interesting to see the psychology not only of the people that kill and what makes them that way, but also interesting to see the psychology behind the type of person who catches killers. The book does start off slow, but does pick up and at times can be a little graphic, but ultimately doesn’t focus on the gruesomeness of the crimes but on how these crimes were solved and the evolution of the behavioural science department as a whole and how today it specialises in apprehending and understanding these criminals. Mr. Douglas has a really great way of sucking you into this book, he is a font of knowledge on dangerous criminals, can sometimes come across as a bit cocky, but knows his stuff and has made sacrifices to make sure these criminals are brought to justice.
