Full Synopsis
In this eagerly anticipated book from the internationally bestselling authors of Mindhunter, Journey into Darkness, and Obsession, legendary crime fighter John Douglas explores the root of all crime—motive.

Every crime is a mystery story with a motive at its heart. Understand the motive and you can solve the mystery. The Anatomy of Motive offers a dramatic, insightful look at the development and evolution of the criminal mind. The famed former chief of the FBI's Investigative Support Unit, Douglas was the pioneer of modern behavioral profiling of serial criminals. Working again with acclaimed novelist, journalist, and filmmaker Mark Olshaker, and using cases from his own fabled career as examples, Douglas takes us further than ever before into the dark corners of the minds of arsonists, hijackers, bombers, poisoners, serial and spree killers, and mass murderers.

"An informative, provocative page-turner. . . . Douglas is a good teller of gruesome tales." ---Kirkus

"As always, Douglas and Olshaker deliver an entertaining read." ---Publishers Weekly

"This is not a book to read at home alone, but it offers interesting, if depressing, insights into the psychology of deadly behavior." ---New York Times
