    Dr. Cantor is there a particular reason, you made certain that the majority of the crimes profiled in this book involve violence by black males against primarily white women? Surely there is more crime in Britain than that. I'm of the opinion that this book is less about violent crime than about the successes of racial profiling.Cantor's style is typical dry British and only really picks up when describing the actual violence and crime scenes. I think I learned more in 20 pages of any John Douglas book I've read (though I have serious reservations about him as well). The Afterword sounds far to much like blowing one's horn and I was actually very uncomfortable reading it.

    I love reading books about criminal profiling. But this book was so technical that it was hard to follow. (It is not as an enjoyable or easy of a read such as from FBI profilers and authors Keppel and Douglas.) But I did learn that it is important for law enforcement to follow their hunches and intuitions, pay attention to detail, look for patterns, and background knowledge that can be compared to patterns discovered. I wasn't familiar with many of the cases presented in the book because the author is from the United Kingdom. But the scientific principles still apply regardless.

    An interesting study of violent offenders. It is ssomewhat difficult to understand because the cases are set in England. Moreover, the author's efforts to classify serial killers and rapists using narratives was confusing.

    I just started this a couple days ago, but the most interesting thing so far is it talks a lot about the British police tactics and cases from their history. Neat for those England buffs out there. :)
