Mapping Murder: The Secrets of Geographical Profiling

‘Criminals reveal who they are and where they live not just from how they commit their crimes, but also from the locations they choose.’

So claims renowned criminal psychologist and profiler David Canter. Fully revised and updated, Canter’s groundbreaking book leads the reader through the labyrinth psyches of serial killers, rapists and other violent criminals and takes us on the murderer’s journey, in both the psychological and geographical sense.

From contentious cases such as Jack the Ripper and Jill Dando, to the murders of Fred West, Canter lifts the lid on geographical profiling and how this new approach to solving crime is changing the way police work and our understanding of the criminal mind.
