The shocking follow-up to the smash-hit Netflix drama, MINDHUNTER

As the world’s top pioneer and expert on criminal profiling, John Douglas has spent his life trying to understand and combat serial killers. Now, he dives deeper into the criminal mind in a range of chilling new cases.

Profiling suspects from OJ Simpson to the Unabomber, investigating the assassination of John Lennon and the Waco tragedy, and exploring what compels child killers, Journey Into Darkness explores the crimes of the century – as well as cases you’ve never heard of – with the peerless eye of one of the FBI’s finest.

Douglas, famously the inspiration for Special Agent Jack Crawford in The Silence of the Lambs, reveals the fascinating circumstance of each crime in detail as he explores the larger issues, from crime prevention and rehabilitation to the reasons behind escalating violence in society. A must read for all true crime fans.

‘John Douglas is the FBI’s pioneer and master of investigative profiling, and one of the most exciting figures in law enforcement I’ve had the privilege of knowing’ – Patricia Cornwell
