From the New York Times Best–Selling Author John Douglas Comes a Story of True Crime That Reads Like Fiction

Inside the Mind of BTK tells the incredible true story of how FBI profiler John Douglas tracked and participated in the hunt for one of the most notorious serial killers in U.S. history. For 31 years a man who called himself BTK (Bind, Torture, Kill) terrorized the city of Wichita, Kansas, sexually assaulting and strangling a series of victims, taunting the police with cryptic communications, and bragging about his vicious crimes to local newspapers and television stations. After disappearing for nine years, he suddenly reappeared, complaining that no one was paying enough attention to him and claiming that he had committed other crimes for which he had not been given credit. When he was finally captured, BTK was revealed to be Dennis Rader, a 61–year–old church–going, married man with two children.

"Inside the Mind of BTK is a chilling and fascinating place to be, and there is no better guide to take us there than great American mindhunter, John Douglas. This is a story of ordinary people and extraordinary evil lock your doors, check your telephone lines, and read this book."
Linda Fairstein, best–selling author, Bad Blood, Death Dance, and Entombed, and former chief prosecutor in the Manhattan District Attorney′s Office Sex Crime Unit

"Riveting! Douglas and Dodd have focused a laser sight on one of the most fascinating and disturbing serial killers of our time. Their in–depth analysis of BTK′s early childhood, his seemingly ′normal′ everyday life, and his shockingly well–hidden ′other′ life deftly explores the nature of evil and how we can better protect ourselves from such cunning predators."
Lisa Gardner, New York Times best–selling suspense author of HIDE
