Book Review: The Evil That Men Do by Roy Hazelwood

The Evil That Men Do: FBI Profiler Roy Hazelwood's Journey into the Minds of Sexual PredatorsThe Evil That Men Do: FBI Profiler Roy Hazelwood's Journey into the Minds of Sexual Predators by Stephen G. Michaud

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


This book is an excellent source of insights into both the facts of serial killer cases as well as the distorted, maladjusted reasoning behind their desires to kill. Roy Hazelwood was the real-life inspiration for modern detectives and FBI profilers characterized in books (Silence of the Lambs, The Ripper Gene), TV (The Following, CSI, The Killing) and movies (Seven, Silence of the Lambs), just to name a few. He (Roy Hazelwood) and John Douglas revolutionized the field with their meticulous studies and their ground-breaking theories which ultimately have stood the test of time. This book explains a great deal of the casework and analysis that led to their breakthroughs in the area of profiling serial killers, and is not to be missed by students and enthusiasts alike.
