They cover crimes against children, terrorism, crimes against the elderly, sexual assault, domestic violence, and homicidal predators. Their text frequently includes anecdotal case material in order to demonstrate how and why such crimes occur. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
