Legendary FBI criminal profiler John Douglas, inspiration for the hit Netflix show Mindhunter, and the model for Agent Jack Crawford in The Silence of the Lambs, looks back on some of his most controversial cases--from JonBenet Ramsey to the West Memphis Three--and provides a personal look into the workings of the criminal justice system, and the criminal mind.

No one is more familiar with humanity's most notorious crimes, or those who commit them, than legendary FBI profiler John Douglas. Over the course of his celebrated career, Douglas has pursued, studied, and interviewed scores of violent predators, including Charles Manson, James Earl Ray, Dennis Rader, and David Berkowitz.

In this provocative and personal book, the most prominent criminal investigator of our time offers his unique perspective on the criminal mind while also exploring the wrenching challenges involved in seeing justice served. Writing with award-winning partner, Mark Olshaker, Douglas opens up about his involvement in historic, headline-making cases--including the West Memphis Three, Amanda Knox, and JonBenet Ramsey.

Brimming with gripping narratives, Law & Disorder sheds light on some of our most pressing questions about guilt, innocence, the pursuit of justice, and the heart of human darkness.
