Publisher's Summary

Violent, provocative, shocking. Call them what you will, but don't call them open and shut.

Did Lizzie Borden murder her own father and stepmother? Was Jack the Ripper actually the Duke of Clarence? Who killed JonBenet Ramsey? America's foremost expert on criminal profiling and 25-year FBI veteran John Douglas, along with author and filmmaker Mark Olshaker, explores those tantalizing questions and more in this mesmerizing work of detection. With uniquely gripping analysis, the authors reexamine and reinterpret the accepted facts, evidence, and victimology of the most notorious murder cases in the history of crime, including the Lindbergh baby kidnapping, the Zodiac Killer, and the Whitechapel murders. Utilizing techniques developed by Douglas himself, they give detailed profiles and reveal chief suspects in pursuit of what really happened in each case. The Cases That Haunt Us not only offers convincing and controversial conclusions, it deconstructs the evidence and widely held beliefs surrounding each case and rebuilds them - with fascinating, surprising, and haunting results.

    "John Douglas is AMAZING"

    This book is incredible. It is insightful, balanced and completely enthralling. John Douglas does the job we all are fascinated with but deep down we could never do. Facts and evidence seem so obvious after he explains them to you and he makes you feel like you found them yourself. This was the last of all of his books I have " read" and actually read, and I hope he does more, his brain is the Alexandra's Library of crime. I wish I could give this book more stars.

    Story
    "Dated but interesting"

    John Douglas' coverage of older cases like Jack the Ripper, Lizzie Borden and the Zodiac Killer are really interesting and well thought out. Obviously he offers no concrete evidence one way or another which is annoying if you are looking for answers. His insight into the JonBenet Ramsey case shows it's age as there's been a lot more interest and evidence emerging in 2016. He very clearly doesn't think the family had anything to do with it and reaches to make evidence fit his interpretation.

    "Outstanding"

    Incitefull look at some fascinating cases.The first thing I've read on Jack The Ripper, in years that hasn't bored me. I have to disagree on the Lindbergh findings. Bruno may not have worked alone but was the main culprit. One doesn't have to be educated to be intelligent. Never believed Patsy wrote that note and this latest stuff about Berkeley is ridiculous. If he had killed his sister there is no way the Ramseys would let the police interview him. As you can see I get really into these cases. If you do too, this is a great book with great narration.

    Story
    "A well written scratch to a True Crime itch"

    The narrator was fantastic. It was easy to visualize a scruffy, seasoned defective going over each case with you one on one. The writing was perfect. Logical, at times funny, and straight forward. This was everything I desired from the True Crime genre, so much so that I fear everything from now on will
    Pale in comparison. My only negative thought is why, oh why, did it have to end?

    Story
    "It was very riveting"

    The book proved for me , a new look at a lot of old cases and one I have never heard of. I know a lot of people said they enjoyed the book till they got to the part about the JonBenet Ramsey case. I have to say it made me see that case in a new light. Those strangely enough I too had the same theory as the author.

    Story
    "A great perspective for a fan of true crime."
    Would you listen to The Cases That Haunt Us again? Why?

    Yes. It has an unusual perspective.


    What did you like best about this story?

    John Douglas's struggle with skeptics and adversaries. How he overcame it all.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did. The detaill and depth of Jon Bonet's suffering really bothered me. Elizabeth Shorts possible torture was gut wrenching. These two made it hard to hold back tears.
