The world's top pioneer and expert on criminal profiling...
"We first met John Douglas in Mindhunter, telling the story of his brilliant and terrifying career with the FBI, until his retirement in 1995. And now, working again with coauthor Mark Olshaker, acclaimed filmmaker, novelist, and journalist, John takes us even further. We accompany him on the Journey into Darkness, for every instance that he helps police identify the unknown subject of a violent series of rapes, bombings, arsons, or murders is another trip to the dark side." "And here we travel with some of the brilliant and sensitive agents John trained, and who have carried on the work: men like Jud Ray, who by phone gave Alaska police the exact personality of the killer of a mother and her two young daughters; Gregg McCrary, who confronted an unknown killer of teenage girls on national television and assured him he would be caught; and Steve Mardigian, who formulated a complex strategy for solving a years-old string of burglaries, rapes, and murders, and in the process helped free the wrongly convicted man." "Here also we get a startlingly fresh look at the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman, as if John had been called in by the LAPD to profile the killer. And finally, we hear how his experiences have shaped his views on justice and punishment."
