The Evil That Men Do profiles the profilers--the investigators who study crimes to try to figure out how, why, and by whom crimes were committed. The focus is on veteran profiler Roy Hazelwood, who played an important role in the growing legitimacy of the art and science of psychological profiling, often seen by police forces as a questionable practice. Through his chillingly accurate profiles and his ability to predict criminal behavior, as well as his keen and creative logical reasoning, Hazelwood has proven himself not only to the law enforcement professionals who use his services but to the public at large. Michaud ( the author) doesn't approach his subject gingerly. While the profilers are treated like regular guys with a really weird job, the crime descriptions can be nauseatingly graphic. Although some of the accounts are funny, this is primarily a disturbing glimpse at some of the most deranged and violent people modern society has produced

    1st review

    Roy Hazelwood is a former FBI BSU profiler. This book is so instructional, as well as interesting, it is a must read for anyone that wants to be or is in investigations. He walks you through the cases that made the BSU famous and tells you about they profiled these killers and how the came to be that way. It's a great read and a great instructional resource. Peace, Don

    Very interesting look inside the world of the Criminal Profiler (although we know that Political Correctness frowns on this...tough). If you want to get a pek inside the psychological makeup of some of this country's most heinous characters. A good read for any Detective, Interrogator or Negotiator.

    Great book!! I have read as much as possible by Hazelwood, Douglas, etc. Profiling is a very interesting subject and this book is well written on the subject. A must read.

    Happen to be reading this right now! I also went to a training where Roy Hazlewood presented. It was very interesting and I learned a lot from it.
