"Excellent book, I have used this for my Criminal Behavior course for a number of years. Very authoritative."
―Harry Cramer, Quincy University

The Fourth Edition of this best-selling text provides students with the most up-to-date information on the increasingly popular field of psychological profiling. Well-known authors Ronald M. Holmes and Stephen T. Holmes build upon their continued research and involvement in field investigation as a source of relevant and often high-profile case studies to illustrate theory and application of the methods discussed. The text is particularly readable and engaging, making frequent use of illustrative tables and figures and presenting occasional photos.

  • Offers guidance to students for online graduate programs, seminars, and degrees in criminal profiling
  • Includes updated tables and crime statistics throughout the text
  • Presents new photos to offer authentic representations of violent crimes and offenders
