John Douglas confronted, interviewed, and studied hundreds of serial killers and assassins, including Charles Manson, Richard Speck, John Wayne Gacy, David Berkowitz (Son of Sam), and James Earl Ray, to understand their motives and motivations, to get inside their minds. He examines crime scenes and creates profiles of the perpetrators, describing their habits and predicting their next moves.
