Read full description of the books:
Legendary FBI profiler and #1 "New York Times" bestselling author John Douglas explores the shocking case of John Robinson, a harmless, unassuming family man whose criminal history began with embezzlement and fraud -- and ended with his arrest for the savage murders of six women and his suspected involvement in at least five disappearances. Most disturbing was the hunting ground in which Robinson seduced his prey: the world of cyberspace. Haunting chat rooms, targeting vulnerable women, and exploiting the anonymity of the Internet, his bloody spree was finally halted by a relentless parole officer who spent ten years trying to nail Robinson as a cold-blooded killer.A cautionary tale set in a virtual world where relationships are established without the benefit of physical contact, and where mainstream Americans can be drawn down a dark path of temptation and death, "Anyone You Want Me To Be" is a contemporary real-life drama of high-tech crime and punishment.

Read information about the authorDuring his twenty-five year career with the FBI’s Behavioral Science Unit, a name he later changed to The Investigative Science Unit (Douglas & Olshaker, 1995). John Douglas became the leading expert on criminal personality profiling and the pioneer of modern criminal investigative analysis. Through his research with serial criminal’s, Douglas learned how criminals think and what makes them do the things that they do, and why. Douglas can determine many personal traits and habits of an offender just by examining the crime scene; it’s evidence and victimology (Douglas & Olshaker, 1995).
John Douglas has conducted hundreds of interviews with some of the world’s most notorious serial offenders, which include:
- Charles Manson, and three members of the Manson clan.
- Sirhan Sirhan, the assassin of Robert F. Kennedy.
- John Wayne Gacy, the serial killer that killed 33 people.
- David Berkowitz, the “Son of Sam”.
- James Earl Ray, assassin of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
- Ted Bundy
- Unsuccessful assassins of Gerald Ford and George Wallace (Douglas & Olshaker, 1995).
In addition, Douglas’s profiles aided in numerous arrests of serial offenders, some of which include:
- Wayne Williams, the .22 caliber killer.
- Carlton Gary, the stalking strangler.
- Robert Hanson, the Anchorage Alaska baker who would kidnap, hunt, then kill local prostitutes.
These are just a few of the cases that John Douglas aided in throughout his twenty-five year career as a profiler with the Behavioral Science Unit, which he later renamed the Investigative Science Unit (Douglas & Olshaker, 1995).
Contributions to Psychology
Douglas and his colleagues outlined in an article that explained the goals of a serial offender in the September 1980 issue of the FBI Law Enforcement Bulletin. They are as follows:
- What leads a person to become a sexual offender and what are the early warning signals?
- What serves to encourage or to inhibit the commission of his offense?
- What types of responses or coping strategies, by an intended victim are successful with what type of sexual offender in avoiding victimization, and
- What are the implications for his dangerousness, prognosis, disposition and mode of treatment (Douglas & Olshaker, 1995)?
