Publisher's Summary

The FBI's Legendary Profiler Probes the Psyches of Killers, Rapists, and Stalkers and Their Victims and Tells How to Fight Back

In Obsession, John Douglas once again takes us fascinatingly behind the scenes, focusing his expertise on predatory crimes, primarily against women. With a deep sense of compassion for the victims and an uncanny understanding of the perpetrators, Douglas looks at the obsessions that lead to rape, stalking, and sexual murder through such cases as Ronnie Shelton, the serial rapist who terrorized Cleveland, and New York's notorious "Preppie Murder".

Very Interesting book!

Would you consider the audio edition of Obsession to be better than the print version?

I prefer the audio editions with my busy schedule! I can listen while I exercise or when driving. This book is a great example of why, in some cases, audio can be better then print since the Author was also the reader!

Any additional comments?

I had the opportunity to hear John Douglass speak in person many years ago. His passion for the work he did was very evident in his presentation to the audience. That same passion is there in his book.
