Performed by Jonathan Groff, star of the hit Netflix show Mindhunter, and featuring an exclusive conversation between John E. Douglas and Jonathan Groff at the end of the audiobook

In The Killer Across the Table, John E. Douglas, the legendary FBI criminal profiler, number-one New York Times bestselling author, and inspiration for Netflix's Mindhunter delves deep into the lives and crimes of four of the most disturbing and complex predatory killers, offering never-before-revealed details about his profiling process, and divulging the strategies used to help crack some of America's most challenging cases. The Killer Across the Table is narrated by Jonathan Groff, who plays Holden Ford on Mindhunter, the character inspired by John E. Douglas.

The FBI's pioneer of criminal profiling, former special agent John Douglas, has studied and interviewed many of America's most notorious killers??including Charles Manson, "Son of Sam Killer" David Berkowitz and "BTK Strangler" Dennis Rader??trained FBI agents and investigators around and the world, and helped educate the country about these deadly predators and how they operate, and has become a legend in popular culture, fictionalized in The Silence of the Lambs and the hit television shows Criminal Minds and Mindhunter.

Twenty years after his famous memoir, the man who literally wrote the book on FBI criminal profiling opens his case files once again. In this riveting work of true crime, he spotlights four of the most diabolical criminals he's confronted, interviewed and learned from. Going deep into each man's life and crimes, he outlines the factors that led them to murder and how he used his interrogation skills to expose their means, motives, and true evil. Like the hit Netflix show, The Killer Across the Table is centered around Douglas' unique interrogation and profiling process. With his longtime collaborator Mark Olshaker, Douglas recounts the chilling encounters with these four killers as he experienced them??revealing for the first time his profile methods in detail.

Going step by step through his interviews, Douglas explains how he connects each killer's crimes to the specific conversation, and contrasts these encounters with those of other deadly criminals to show what he learns from each one. In the process, he returns to other famous cases, killers and interviews that have shaped his career, describing how the knowledge he gained from those exchanges helped prepare him for these.

A glimpse into the mind of a man who has pierced the heart of human darkness, The Killer Across the Table unlocks the ultimate mystery of depravity and the techniques and approaches that have countered evil in the name of just… (més)

4.25 - some of the crimes are recounted in gruesome detail which was at times difficult to get through, but Douglas does a good job of re-humanizing some of the victims and survivors of killers and predators who essentially made them a statistic. ( )

Somewhat disjointed book about profiling. The author discusses many cases. ( )
  MrDickie | Sep 21, 2023 |
This was an insightful look into the minds of killers. This book focused on the interviewing techniques the FBI used when first beginning to profile criminals. This focused on 4 cases, each disturbing and a bit graphic. If you cant' handle hearing about child abuse, sex abuse, torture, and murder, you shouldn't read this book.

I listened to the audiobook which was awesome because Jonathon Groff narrated it (he plays Holden Ford on Mindhunter who is loosely based on John Douglas). There was also an interview between the men at the end that was fun to listen to. ( )

Usually i don't like books i can't relate to. But this is an exception. As in i liked it without relating to it. It would be unsettling if i related to it. It's full of serial killers. ( )

The Killer Across the Table
5 Stars

This is an exceptionally well-written, in-depth and insightful analysis of the why? section of the serial killer equation: why? how? = who?.

Retired FBI criminal profiler, John E. Douglas, one of the foremost experts on serial killers, provides a fascinating look into the minds and behaviors of 4 very different killers. While the book focuses on the investigations and interrogations of these particular monsters (Douglas's term), there is also a wealth of detail and analysis given to other serial and mass murderers that fans of the Netflix original series, Mindhunters, will recognize: Ed Kemper, David Berkowitz, Richard Speck, Charles Manson, and many others.

The often horrendous details of the murders are presented in a direct and straightforward manner without any unnecessary, gruesome, or sensationalized descriptions. The cases speak for themselves and the authors have untold respect for the victims and their families.

In sum, this is an absolutely brilliant read and I will definitely be reading some of Douglas's previous works. ( )
