Hey guys, I just ordered 2 copies of this book to give to my teachers because it is FLAT OUT the most AWESOME book I have read in 10+ years. The guy who wrote it is a fucking genius. No fluff, no bullshit, it is plain awesome. I first read it when I was in prison and I was hooked, unfortunately I didn't get a chance to finish it back then. It's one of those books that grabs you and sucks you into another world - 120 years ago. If you are a pleasure/casual reader, this will light you up. It's about the NY police department's first profiling and discovery of serial killers. The guy did a ton of research to show how the practice of fingerprinting, etc... came into place. It takes you into the mind of monster hunters. It's VERY dark, but trust me, it's amazing.
