Case of a doctor killing his family; 2 examples of the use and abuse of post traumatic stress disorder diagnosis by Vietnam veterans; 3 the murder of a Japanese exchange student by a Baton Rouge homeowner; 4 review of patterns found in serial murders including those in Japan; 5 interview with John Wayne Gacy. Following his first book Whoever Fights Monsters Ressler s second book looks at killers in particular serial killersSerial killer These two words intrigue many peopleOnce called stranger murders because of the lack of connection between victim and killer this type of crime has become the popular topic of books movies and conversation People fear the randomness and unpredictability of the serial killer A victim is just in the wrong place at the wrong timeBut there is a victimology Not always but many times victims are prostitutes or drifters people who won t be missed or are less likely to be the subject of an intense search Gacy and Dahmer lured victims to their homes young men were tortured and killed by these two whom Ressler calls monsters Most of these guys are after a particular type of victimPerhaps the scariest thing about serial killers successful ones anyway is that they don t look like serial killers The leering weird wild eyed killer is likely to cause suspicion and likely will soon be caught Dahmer Bundy and others functioned normally and looked like one of us So while they behave like monsters they certainly don t look like monstersRessler now retired from the FBI s Behavioral Science Unit coined the term serial killer His book doesn t just deal with serial killers though He talks about several sarin gas attacks in Japan and a few cases in which ex military men claimed Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome caused them to kill The cases in particular the interviews with Gacy and Dahmer are interesting The delivery though isn t impressiveOne of my freuent complaints about John Douglas books is the look how great I am voice Ressler does the same thing Maybe it s just a byproduct of being good at one s job But both men have coauthors and you d think somewhere along the line one of them would step back and say Hey I think this is a bit much Call me crazyI also find it odd that these two very famous profilers have written books about their cases but they rarely mention each other Is it just me or do these guys not like each otherAnyway back to the book at hand The title seemed kind of strange to me but I figured after I read the book it would make sense I guess I can sort of understand it now as in he had to get into the killer s minds but it s still weird Read Ressler when you get tired of reading the same set of stories over and over in John Douglas books Maybe by the time we work our way through the lot of them a writer like Stephen Michaud with Roy Hazelwood will have a new book out

Robert K. Ressler È 0 Summary

Seeking to understand his psychology; 6 7 two part psychological interview with Jeffrey Dahmer revealing several fascinating new details; 8 two British cases on which the author was asked to consult; 9 investigation of a South African serial killer; 10 the Aum Shinri Kyo cult sarin nerve gas terrorists in Jap. I have read almost of all of John Douglas books so I figured I would like this one too since Robert Ressler was in the same unit at the same time with Douglas Ressler s tales are interesting but his constant whining and ego stroking make this read incredibily frustrating I found myself wishing that he would stop talking about himself and explaint he processes in which he develops a profile and catches the criminal I don t think I ll be reading any books by him

    I had an obsession with this subject for a while so I read everything I could This is a must read for anyone interessted in serial killers Beyond the movie stereotype to real people It's hard to believe they exist in the same world as us as they are so out there they seem fictional but they are very real and very complex
