Publisher's Summary

In this first-person account of becoming the FBI's top serial-killer hunter and a member of a religious order in an attempt to discern the true nature of good and evil, Roger L. Depue searches for an understanding of how evil develops. Between Good and Evil is Depue's look back at a life spent apprehending criminals, especially serial killers, first as a small-town police chief, then an FBI-SWAT team member, Behavioral Sciences Unit chief, and a developer of revolutionary law enforcement programs.

The book also examines Depue's experience studying with the Brothers of the Missionaries of the Holy Apostles in an attempt to discover why a good person like his wife, whom he had lost to cancer, is allowed to die while monstrous criminals get to live. Following his time in the clergy, Depue returned to law-enforcement and today heads one of the world's most elite forensics think tanks, "The Academy".

    Story
    "Superb in every way by the Master of Profiling"
    What made the experience of listening to Between Good and Evil the most enjoyable?

    It was the full story of the development of profiling by the FBI by the man who formed the profiling unit.


    What does Paul Michael bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    An absolutely riveting read!!

    "distractingly self-aggrandizing"

    There was a good story there but this guy spends way too much time proclaiming his own greatness!

    Story
    "This would be tough to see everyday"
    What did you love best about Between Good and Evil?

    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!

    Story
    "Self-Congratulatory All the Way"

    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.

    Story
    "Depue is so interestingly human."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Between Good and Evil to be better than the print version?

    Did not read the print version.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the famous cases and the humanity of Depue during his personal journey.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    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.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. There are some moments you need a break. You are told about horrible cases with horrible events.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "More than I expected!"
    What did you love best about Between Good and Evil?

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and it was so much more than I expected! What I expected was a book about criminal profiling and real-life examples of how these detectives go about creating psychological profiles of brutal killers and solve crimes. This book has all of that and so much more. This book is also a touching autobiography of Dr. Depue, who in many ways was a pioneer in his profession. Dr. Depue shares his childhood experiences, his relationship with his father, and all of the elements of his life that he believes shaped his mission to stamp out evil where it hides. I was touched by his trials, his honesty about his own mistakes, and his deep love for his wife that sustained him as he saw first hand (on a daily basis) the unfathomable evil that humans are capable of. Dr. Depue also shares his personal and spiritual struggles to reconcile living in a world where such evil exists. I came away with a deep respect for the men and women who put themselves in harms way and sacrifice so much (even their own sanity at times) to stop real-life monsters from preying on you and me. God bless them all!

    "solid nonfiction read"

    you can easily see this guy's influence on so many crime dramas we see today on tv (criminal minds, basically any show with criminal profiling). when I read reviews, some reviewers felt Depeu was full of himself. I didn't get that impression but this guy can be full of himself, a true pioneer in criminal investigations & psychological profiling.
