In his groundbreaking study, renowned criminal psychologist and profiler David Canter lifts the lid on geographical profiling and takes us on the murderer's journey in both the psychological and literal sense. He leads us through the labyrinthine psyches of serial killers, rapists and other violent criminals, conducting a meticulous and fascinating exploration into the twisted logic of men whose crimes have shocked the world.
Mapping Murder unravels the complexities of contentious cases such as the Jack the Ripper killings and Jill Dando's murder. Detailing the 'marauders and commuters' theory, Carter explains how the devious attempts of killers to satisfy their brutal desires led to their capture and explains how murderers like Fred West constructed 'spiders' webs' to lure and then destroy victims. David Canter explains how this new approach to solving crimes is changing both the way police think and work, and out understanding of the criminal mind.
