Publisher's Summary

Criminals reveal who they are and where they live not just from how they commit their crimes, but also from the locations they choose.  

This is the claim of renowned criminal psychologist and profiler David Canter. In this groundbreaking book, now fully revised and updated, Canter leads us into the labyrinthine psyche of serial killers, rapists, and other violent criminals, and reveals how geographical profiling is changing the way police work and our understanding of the criminal mind.  

From Jack the Ripper to Fred West's house of horror and the recent Suffolk murders, Canter analyzes the geographical maps of killers' actions and the psychological maps of their thoughts to provide a fascinating insight into the most notorious criminals of all time.

A Little Biased...

While I learned a lot of interesting things about this, it didn't translate as well to audiobook and the author seems a bit biased. There were some topics that discussed math and stats and it was hard to understand without reading it. He seems to think his method is the best method of all and doesn't touch on any of the obvious concerns. He seems to have very little respect for most criminal profilers or other profiling systems and approaches. I was surprised to hear him say that feminists are upset about rape basically because it takes value away from a woman? yeah... I think women just hate being raped dude. Had some interesting cases but overall was an odd book
