Publisher Description

A dramatic and compelling true-crime psychological thriller
This incredible story shows how John Douglas tracked and participated in the hunt for one of the most notorious serial killers in U.S. history. For 31 years a man who called himself BTK (Bind, Torture, Kill) terrorized the city of Wichita, Kansas, sexually assaulting and strangling a series of women, taunting the police with frequent communications, and bragging about his crimes to local newspapers and TV stations. After disappearing for nine years, he suddenly reappeared, complaining that no one was paying enough attention to him and claiming that he had committed other crimes for which he had not been given credit. When he was ultimately captured, BTK was shockingly revealed to be Dennis Rader, a 61-year-old married man with two children.

Interesting Insight

Very interesting insight, but Douglas’ claims of coming up with the strategy for the police to communicate with BTK is not universally acknowledged. Other sources do not agree with his claims. Douglas is indeed a pioneer, but his ego oozes from every page of the book. The best account of the BTK investigation I have read is the one written by the Wichita Eagle Reporters. It is the story of the police officers investigating the crimes, the journalists and the killer. That book and this one are somewhat intertwined, but there are some contradictions. Most have to do with the aforementioned claims by Douglas.
