Description

John Douglas, legendary profiler and FBI Investigative Support Unit founder, will kick off the series on Sept. 16. Douglas is best known for his development and authority of criminal profiling, which emerged in the 70's as a tool to help hunt down violent offenders. In his most recent book, "The Killer Across the Table: Unlocking the Secrets of Serial Killers and Predators with the FBI's Original Mindhunter", Douglas takes a look at the life and minds of several notable criminal cases, discusses details about the profiling process and takes a look at the strategies used to crack the most challenging cases.
