He also offers suggestions from police officers, therapists, and child predators on the best approaches for preventing these crimes.

About the Author:

Chris Hansen is a journalist and correspondent who is best known for his work on the Dateline NBC television segment "To Catch a Predator," which revolves around catching Internet sex predators using a sting operation. He lives in Connecticut. Todd McLaren was involved in radio for more than twenty years in cities on both coasts, including Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. He left broadcasting for a full-time career in voice-overs, where he has been heard on more than 5,000 TV and radio commercials, as well as TV promos; narrations for documentaries on such networks as A&E, Discovery, and the History Channel; and films, including Who Framed Roger Rabbit?

From AudioFile:

The millions of fans of the popular Dateline television show will love Chris Hansons complete story of catching Internet predators red-handed and the support people who make the stings work. Parents can learn how predators gain young teens trust online and lure them into traps that may harm--even kill--them. Listeners will swear that narrator Todd McLaren sounds exactly like show host Stone Phillips, deep and articulate. The sound-alike narration makes a clever transition from the small screen to the audiobook. McLaren reads the many quotes with a subtle change in his voice to distinguish the dialogue from the narrative, but the voices arent characters. The predators graphic language in the chats doesnt get bleeped out as on TV. J.A.H. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
