Publisher's Summary

In 1994, after many years of movies and television portraying the evil side of the human psyche, Dr. David Canter published Criminal Shadows. Two decades on, its revolutionary descriptions of psychological profiling still helps to explain the actions of serial killers and psychopaths.

These techniques can help police precisely identify and locate murderers and rapists, even those who have alluded capture for years.

Dr. David Canter was a British pioneer in the psychological science of criminal profiling. In prose that takes a clear, structured approach to his subject, he reveals how vicious serial killers and rapists unconsciously cast shadows of their identity at the crime scene. The telltale patterns, when scientifically understood, can help police capture these brutal offenders. He also explains the types of criminality and victims.

Criminal Shadows leads the listener through Dr. Canter's breakthrough profiling techniques, now adopted by a growing number of police forces throughout the world. Anyone with an interest in psychology or criminal justice should listen to this audiobook, as should fans of television forensic programs.
