Notes

Description
"Legendary FBI criminal profiler and former special agent John Douglas is known for helping to crack some of America's most challenging murder cases. The FBI's pioneer of criminal profiling and the inspiration behind the hit Netflix show Mindhunter, Douglas has spent decades working with law enforcement to understand the criminal mind and hunt serial killers and violent predators. In that time, he has researched, interviewed, and analyzed some of America's most notorious murderers -- including Charles Manson, 'Son of Sam Killer' David Berkowitz, and 'BTK Strangler' Dennis Rader -- while also training FBI agents and investigators from around the world on profiling and interrogating these deadly predators. Now, in [this book], Douglas, along with his longtime collaborator Mark Olshaker, turns his keen eye on the lives and crimes of four of the most disturbing killers he has confronted, explaining in detail how each case expanded his knowledge and study of criminal behavior. Offering never-before-revealed details about his interview techniques and profiling process, Douglas goes step by step through his encounters with these murderers, connecting each sadistic predator's crimes to his conversation with them and showing how he used his interrogation skills to expose their true evil. He also returns to other famous cases he's worked on -- the investigations and interviews that have shaped his career -- describing how the knowledge he gained from those conversations helped prepare him for these. At once fascinating and haunting, The killer across the table unlocks the ultimate mysteries behind these depraved killers, revealing the psychology that led them into darkness. Twenty years after his famous memoir, the man who literally wrote the book on FBI criminal profiling opens his case files once more, showing his unprecedented ability to get into the heads of both predator and prey as he talks to the country's most dangerous men."--Dust jacket.
