I Have Lived in the Monster: Inside the Minds of the World's Most… (1997)
"Before Robert Ressler coined the term serial killer, the crimes committed by these sociopaths were known as stranger murders. Set apart from all other murders, they are the most difficult to solve: where there is no connection between murderer and victim, nor between on victim and the next, there is no way to fathom the identity of the perpetrator." "Since Ressler's retirement from the FBI's Behavioral Science Unit, the world has seen a disastrous international increase in serial murder. While the United States is the world's leading producer of sociopathic killers, serial murder has never been an exclusively American phenomenon, and Ressler, now in private practice and busier than ever, is sought by law enforcement agencies all over the globe. Japan, Great Britain, and South Africa are only a few of the nations to which Ressler, with his grim wisdom, has been summoned to investigate these crimes. In I Have Lived in the Monster he shares his insights and experiences in discussions of fascinating and disturbing cases from around the world."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
