Publisher's Summary

There is only one John Douglas.

We first met Douglas in Mindhunter, which told the story of his brilliant and terrifying with the FBI until his retirement in 1995. And now, again with coauthor Mark Olshaker, he goes even further. We accompany him on the Journey Into Darkness that marks every case he examines; every instance in which he helps police identify the unknown perpetrator of a violent series of rapes, kidnappings, or murders through his remarkable criminal personality profiling.

In this fascinating audio experience, we journey with some of the brilliant and sensitive agents John has trained, who have carried on his work. We take a startlingly fresh look at the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman as if John had been asked by the LAPD to identify the killer through behavioral profiling. And we hear how a lifetime around killers and their victims has shaped his views on justice and punishment.

The Journey Into Darkness is a perilous one, but ultimately a hopeful one as well. For not only do we see from the men and women who track the most sadistic of criminals what a powerful weapon profiling has become, we also get advice on how we might better keep our children, our families and ourselves safe from harm. By making the Journey Into Darkness with John Douglas and his colleagues, we come away with an insight into the human condition that no one else can offer.

    "Totally Amazing"

    I have been a fan of J.Douglas for a very long time. Reading *Anatomy of Motive* first. This book gives insight to the horrid minds of criminals that sometimes is tough to hear,,,But yet we need to hear it. Giving the reader new ways to protect themselves and their familys. I listened to it twice and would recommend this one to everyone.

    "VERY INTERESTING!"
    Would you listen to Journey into Darkness again? Why?

    Sure. It is very informative. You may catch something you missed before.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The stories of the suspects trials and what became of them did.


    What three words best describe John E. Douglas’s performance?

    Better than Mindhunters.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this book more than Mindhunter because of the case work that he discusses.

    "Interesting Material but..."

    This is some interesting material, but poorly written and poorly performed. I'm not a writer myself, but I am a reader and can tell when a writer has missed the mark. The authors were FBI agents, and they write in the dry style of a law enforcement officer who writes many reports. Although they try to make it more interesting, too often I found myself thinking that they went in a different direction at a moment where they could have delved deeper into a person or the personal part of situation. Discussion of the situation seems to be where they feel comfortable. Unfortunately, the performance was even dryer, and about half way through the book the author's accent became annoying when he repeatedly pronounced "unsub" like "onsub," and when he pronounced bible like it had 3 syllables (bi-uh-bull). One word of caution: if you can't make it past the first couple minutes, this book is not for you. I was cringing, but thought the brutally graphic content was permissible because it was an excerpt from a conversation with a serial killer. At the end of the section you find out that it's the author's view of what the actual killer might have been thinking. As an introduction of what an Investigative Profiler does "getting into the mind of a serial killer" it is effective, but I thought it was over the top.
