Description

In Obsession, John Douglas once again takes us fascinatingly behind the scenes, focusing his expertise on predatory crimes, primarily against women. With a deep sense of compassion for the victims and an uncanny understanding of the perpetrators, Douglas looks at the obsessions that lead to rape, stalking, and sexual murder through such cases as Ronnie Shelton, the serial rapist who terrorized Cleveland, and New York's notorious "Preppie Murder".

But Douglas also looks at obsession on the other side of the moral spectrum: his own career-long obsession with hunting these predators. Douglas shows us how we can all fight back and protect ourselves, our families, and loved ones against the scourge of the violent predators in our midst.

The first step is insight and understanding, and no one is better qualified to penetrate obsession than John Douglas.

WARNING!!! Why am I reading /listening to

I have every audible book authored by John E Douglas. This is the second review where I'm literally asking the same questions and left unfulfilled and let down.

Why?! ....because here again , he is writing about the same ol cases he writes about in aEVERY OTHER BOOK he has written.Edward Kemper, David Berkowitz, Atlanta child murders, and 1/4 of the way through during his monologue (because he always uses the first quarter of ever book he writes , to talk about him being the reason the FBI birthed the criminal profiler unit ), he even states " just as I explained in my prior books ..."so he even admits there is nothing new here , sorry folks.

I'm so confused as to how this so called profiler seems to only have a hand full of cases to talk about. These cases have been told ,retold and told some more, as if no other cases are interesting enough to retell.

I’m frustrated because this was my complaint with his last book and that was a retelling of the other cases he wrote in his prior books.
Same cases, same crimes, so boring and I feel cheated.

Excellent for true crime fanatics.

This is a truly riveting book for those who cannot get enough of true crime. Great storytelling and leads right into MindHunter.

Amazing

I loved that this book not only discussed cases, but that it also spoke in great depth about victim advocacy, therapy and legal reform. Very insightful book!

Not bad but not best

Liked his others better, but this wasn't terrible.
Had slow moments but all in all I would recommend

Been Waiting awhile for this one Unabridged

Love JD. This book slides in right behind BTK and Mindhunter as his 3rd best, so worth credits /cost, and narration is superb.

What's different about this one is Douglas' vulnerability about profiles on serial offenders that were not yet caught: BTK ( called search and destroy in the book), and The GRK.
Some profile points were correct, some not, and some ,that given hindsight , could have led investigators down the wrong path.

True Crime fans will love this, but don't be scared if you're just starting to dip your toe. you can never go wrong with s John Douglas book.

Tired as always

It’s become old and just pumping his own tires, he comes across exactly as he says the killers and rapists he’s talking about do. Just trying to be a tough guy but it’s sad because he’s obviously got a lot of knowledge but instead is using it to make himself look great and make money

John Douglas

I really disliked the narration and would suggest sampling it before buying or using your audible credits.

I’m not an avid true crime reader but I liked “Killer Across the Table” and since “Obsession” was mentioned in that book I thought I would give this one a shot. I gave “Mindhunter” a shot as well but if you have read one of John Douglas’ books you have read them all to be entirely honest, and reading multiple is redundant. I thought it was kind of interesting to hear BTK’s profile before he was actually apprehended but I suggest just reading “Killer Across the Table” since it’s most up-to-date and calling it good.
