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.

Graphic but a good listen

Be warned this book gets into more graphic detail about sexual assault than most. Covers some cases I didn't know about before, takes a new perspective on ones I did. I enjoy the narrator as well. Overall, solid true crime overview book.

Spectacular.

Disturbing at times but captured the mind of the evil in the minds of these criminals. Truly a remarkable investigator to be able to recreate the minds of these evil men.

Interesting and an enjoyable read.<br />

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.

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.

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.
