Talking To Legendary Former FBI Profiler John Douglas, The Author Of 'MindHunter' And "The Killer's Shadow'
I had a long and most interesting telephone conversation this morning with John Douglas, the legendary former FBI profiler.
John Douglas discussed his career, explained behavioral analysis and spoke of Joseph Paul Franklin (shown in the below photo), an expert sniper, avowed racist, serial murderer and the subject of his latest book, The Killer's Shadow.
My long-form Q&A with John Douglas will appear in the upcoming issue of Counterterrorism magazine. I'll post the Q&A here when the magazine comes out.
