Over the centuries, mankind has demonstrated a deep capacity to inflict tremendously dark violence upon itself. And whether it’s beheadings, car bombings, serial killings, or random shootings, giving innocent victims a voice from their graves is what good police work is all about.

In Matador of Murder, former FBI agent Patrick J. Mullany presents how the use of case experiences has substantially helped in the profiling of criminal behavior.

In the early 1970s, Mullany, together with fellow FBI instructor Howard Teten, pioneered the concept of offender profiling for law enforcement by the FBI. They believed people murdered as they lived, and different crimes had different patterns.

By examining cases including the murders of Robert Kennedy, Sharon Tate, and Susan Jaeger as well as several kidnapping cases, this remarkable book lays out various types of mental diseases and illnesses and the crimes those suffering from them tend to gravitate toward.

This book is a unique window into the historical beginning of criminal psychological profiling and how it can be used in solving a criminal case as well as a study of violence in America with direct application to society and corporate America.
