Abstract

Three years have passed since the publication of the first edition of this text. This has been a time of learning, growth, and reflection. It has been a time to think critically about where we have come from and about where we are going. It has been, to be fair, a curious and winding path. At moments the path was bright and well lit, and at others the path was dark and frankly overgrown. There have been significant developments and even scientific advances in profiling methodology and related literature, such as the publication of the third edition of Turvey's Criminal Profiling: An Introduction to Behavioral Evidence Analysis. Principles, practices, and terminology were refined, evidence-based methods of case examination were given greater structure and focus, and the contributions of cognitive psychology were embraced. Further still was the publication of Forensic Victimology, a collaborative effort by Turvey, myself, and other case-working professionals, which redefined victim study as a means of addressing investigative and forensic issues such as suspect development, modus operandi analysis, and case linkage. Both works have advanced the cause of investigating and examining serial crime for the better-emphasizing critical thinking and the scientific method.
