Criminal profile: Into the mind of a killer

Research output: Book/ReportBookResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Profilers apply a range of techniques, from diagnostic evaluations to behavioural evidence analysis, in order to study patterns of behaviour that emerge from crime scene investigations. Piece by piece, they build a portrait of the type of person who committed the crime, and it is this profile that helps police find their needle in a haystack. Criminal Profile offers insight into the professional's casebook, including the most cutting-edge profiling techniques, the origins and limitations of the practice, as well as the way some of history's most infamous criminals have been caught.
