Publisher's Summary

The Evil That Men Do introduced listeners to the lifework and the techniques of FBI profiler Roy Hazelwood. Now, in Dark Dreams, Hazelwood - writing with best-selling author Stephen G. Michaud - brings us deep into the minds of his prey, the world's most dangerous sexual criminals, and reveals the extent to which these individuals permeate our society.

Profiler Roy Hazelwood is one of the world's leading experts on the strangest and most dangerous of all aberrant offenders - the sexual criminal. In Dark Dreams he reveals the twisted motives and thinking that go into the most reprehensible crimes. He also catalogs the innovative and remarkably effective techniques - investigative approaches that he helped pioneer at the FBI's Behavioral Science Unit - that allow law enforcement agents to construct psychological profiles of the offenders who commit these crimes.

Hazelwood has helped track down some of the most violent and well-known criminals in modern history; in Dark Dreams he takes listeners into his world - a sinister world inhabited by scores of dangerous offenders for every Roy Hazelwood who would put them behind bars.

FINALLY SOME NEW AND INTERESTING CASES!

True crime fans will be excited for this one ! New and interesting cases, from a notable profiler, who even has a book out with Dr Deetz, whom I find very interesting. So , I gave it a shot and finally , I was able to enjoy a book without skipping chapters or returning it all together. Enjoy!

This Book Shows The Infancy of a FBI Profiler

Though this book needed to be stopped on occasion, it still shows how murders react to stimulus. You get the Profilers reasoning for their conclusions. This is the second book I've listened to by this author. It shows Profiling and how it came about with different cases.

Great but dated

Good Info by an expert and pioneer in the field but info is dated and some conclusions drawn are a bit questionable. Excellent over all but not the most up to date

Hazelwood Was One of the Best in His Field!

Along with Robert Ressler, I think Roy Hazelwood was one of the most dispassionate, scholarly students/investigators of sexually oriented crimes and criminals. He made his stories less about himself, and more about the task at hand - investigating these horrible crimes, and identifying the criminals.

Disturbing detail

I got about halfway through this book and decided to quit. It had too much graphic sexual detail which I thought was unnecessary to inform readers about the criminal mind. Describing how many times and in what order orafices were entered reads more like something a sexual deviant would like to hear. However, this helped me appreciate the other law enforcement officers or agents who are writing, those authors that do not include this level of detail but are still able to convey the information.
