his twenty-five year career with the Investigative Support
Unit, Special Agent John Douglas became a legendary figure
in law enforcement, pursuing some of the most notorious and
sadistic serial killers of our time: the man who hunted
prostitutes for sport in the woods of Alaska, the Atlanta
child murderer, and Seattle's Green River killer, the case
that nearly cost Douglas his life.
As the model for
Jack Crawford in The Silence of the Lambs, Douglas
has confronted, interviewed, and studied scores of serial
killers and assassins, including Charles Manson, Ted Bundy,
and Ed Gein, who dressed himself in his victims' peeled
skin. Using his uncanny ability to become both predator and

killer's and the victim's actions in his mind, creating
their profiles, describing their habits, and predicting
their next moves.
