Micki Pistorius is an investigative psychologist whose doctoral thesis proposed a theory for the origin of serial homicide. She spent six years as a profiler and was involved in 35 serial killer investigations, which she described in her first successful book, Catch Me A Killer. In this study of serial homicide, she offers vital information about the mind of the serial killer, including behavioural patterns and motives. This serious attempt to understand the serial killer can help stop them. For, as the author points out, a serial killer's prospect of rehabilitation is negative, and he must be removed from society for the remainder of his life. Includes a section of black and white photos of real crime scenes.
