• Le livre qui a inspiré la série de David Fincher sur NETFLIX

    Au fil de ses vingt-cinq ans au FBI, l'agent spécial John Douglas est devenu une légende vivante, considéré comme le premier profileur de serial killers. Il a suivi et résolu des dizaines de cas, dont le dernier lui a presque coûté la vie.
    John Douglas est entré dans l'intimité et dans l'esprit de tueurs en série pour parvenir à établir leur profil et à les arrêter. Il a ensuite formé une nouvelle génération d'agents spéciaux et a notamment inspiré à Thomas Harris l'agent Jack Crawford dans son roman Le Silence des agneaux.
    À partir de ce témoignage passionnant, glaçant et unique, David Fincher a créé une série de fiction qui se déroule en 1979 et reprend certaines affaires de John Douglas.

  • During 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 prey, Douglas examines each crime scene, reliving both the killer's and the victim's actions in his mind, creating their profiles, describing their habits, and predicting their next moves. Now, in chilling detail, the legendary Mindhunter takes us behind the scenes of some of his most gruesome, fascinating, and challenging cases -- and into the darkest recesses of our worst nightmares.

  • The world's top pioneer and expert on criminal profiling delves further into the criminal mind in a range of chilling new cases - involving rape, arson, child molestation and murder - as well as profiling suspects from OJ Simpson to the Unabomber, and investigating the assassination of John Lennon and the tragedy at Waco, Texas.

    The inspiration for Special Agent Jack Crawford in The Silence of the Lambs and a continually sought-after consultant on headline-making cases, Douglas reveals the fascinating circumstance of each crime in detail as he explores the larger issues, from crime prevention and rehabilitation to what violence is doing to society.
