This book reveals the inside story on how psychological profiling and old-fashioned detective work helped crack cases of serial killings, sex crimes, celebrity murders, hostage taking, terrorist crimes, and police cover-ups. Vorpagel - the hard-boiled detective, yet disarmingly engaging guide - takes us back in time to the actual scenes of the crime. His infectious enthusiasm not only inspires us to adopt his brilliant detective mindset and sleight-of-hand logic, but draws us in to experience the unbridled euphoria of crime solving. We even get all the chilling details of the true heart-pounding story of extremist Rastafarians plotting to assassinate Vorpagel himself. Vorpagel's close brush with death as related in his minute-by-minute account so shocks the reader, it leaves him breathless.
