Profiles in Murder: An FBI Legend Dissects Killers and Their Crimes Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A victim is stabbed nineteen times but left in a peaceful, resting position. Was her killer a raging psychotic, or as timid as she was?

In a charred house a partially clothed woman is found in her bed with a pornographic magazine and a mirror. Did she die in the fire — or at a sex killer's hands?

Before it was immortalized in The Silence of the Lambs, the FBI Behavioral Science Profiling Unit was pioneered by Russell Vorpagel. Now the legendary profiler takes you into the most intriguing cases of his career — actual cases of serial killings, sex crimes, celebrity murders, and hostage takings.

Showing how profiling turns the chaos and blood of a crime scene into a psychological snapshot of a suspect — his age, his personality, even the model car he drives — Vorpagel illuminates the twisted minds of the most vicious criminals of our time.

From the vampire murderer Richard Trenton Case — who consumed the blood of his victims — to Vorpagel's own duel with an assassin on the island of St. Croix, Profiles in Murder is the chilling real-life story of the human monsters who share our streets — and the men and women who hunt them down.

About the Author

Russell Vorpagel, during thirty-two years of law enforcement, has become a legend at the FBI. He, along with Robert Ressler and others, helped put the FBI Behavioral Science Profiling Unit on the map — the psychological profiling unit immortalized in The Silence of the Lambs.

He has served as a special agent in Quantico, New York, Detroit, Sacramento, Baltimore, and Monterey. Featured on CBS's 60 Minutes, he has trained FBI personnel around the world and has taught courses in law enforcement to local and federal officers in thirty states.

He is currently a consultant and expert witness in criminal cases for his students, law enforcement, and prosecutors. He resides with his wife, Nancy, in Loomis, California.

Joseph Harrington has been writing full-time since 1986. He lives with his wife, Lorraine, and family in the Mother Lode country of northern California.
