Between Good and Evil certainly goes behind the scenes and into the minds of the men and women who search for the evil amongst us. It is well written and extremely well read. But, and for me this is a big "but," I couldn't help thinking I was listening to a unwelcomed sermon. The author's obvious Catholicism and his short foray into the religious life detracted from the science of his message. His conservative political bent was not so hidden throughout the passages, even bashing Janet Reno at one point. It's not what I bargained for when I chose to purchase this book. And for all his religiosity, I found it interesting, when the author was discussing the mentality of child molestors, not once were the many recent lawsuits against the Catholic Church and priests mentioned. Very strange indeed. Still, the author did put us in touch with the evil side present in our everyday lives. I only wish he hadn't coated it with his religious views.
No once was enough.
No, but I would. He was great
This is a great autobiography and interesting look at profiling.
It was the full story of the development of profiling by the FBI by the man who formed the profiling unit.
What does an actor bring to a screenplay that you would not experience by just reading it yourself? This question is pretty old and it has a very obvious answer.
An absolutely riveting read!!
Though fantasy monster hunter book have my enjoyment. Hearing about real people in the most couched and gentle reference was very disturbing. These folks that really hunt the monsters are something!
This book should have been called The Great Roger Depue. I was looking forward to case history, psychological methods and actual reasoning but the book glosses over the cases and points instead to how great a man Mr. Roger Depue must be. I am sure he is great at what he does--after all he did 'profile' the bad guys pretty well--but dear gods, I wondered if he sprained his arm patting himself on the back quite so much.
The narrator did a good job so he gets a 5 but the story itself isn't about a hunt for violent predators so it gets a 1.
I have been in law enforcement and it truly shows the realness of it all. Very well written.

Did not read the print version.
I loved the famous cases and the humanity of Depue during his personal journey.
When Depue sent a new BSU agent to meet with Ted Bundy after all his other agents were denied. The new agent got through and created a realtionship with Bundy to get so much information, which helped the BSU.
No. There are some moments you need a break. You are told about horrible cases with horrible events.
It was well read and an interesting story.
Roger Depue was an admirable example of a law enforcement professional. Interesting accounts of his work in some of the most notorious crimes in the nation. Some images will be hard to forget and you'll wish you never saw/heard them.
