Comments Journey Into Darkness

  • Sara

    The subject matter was a little too dark for me here. Having read Mindhunter: Inside the FBI's Elite Serial Crime Unit, I was intrigued enough to look into some other true crime books by John Douglas. Journey Into Darkness claims to look into the why's of criminal deviant (mainly sexual) behaviour, and offers to explain the inner workings of these criminals minds. Although going into this I knew the descriptions and details of various violent crimes would be intense, I found them a little bit to [...]


  • Nitsa

    Makes you think twice about walking alone at night. Or ever. Contemplating a large investment in a barbed fence, a pit bull and a mote after reading about some of the heinous crimes he's profiled.


  • James

    Heartbreaking and gripping. John Douglas recounts several horrific murder cases he helped investigate, focusing on the victims and their families. They're haunting stories, both in the impact of the killings on the families and then in the stress and grief accompanying the convoluted legal processes that sometimes followed, including a series of technical appeals, in a case cinched both by massive physical evidence and by a detailed confession, that had lasted - at the time of writing - more tha [...]


  • Chris

    I've always been pretty intrigued by Serial Killers and the people who track them down. If there was a way to get a job tracking them without going through lower law enforcement and the possibility of being stuck in Robbery or Vice or another department I would have made that my career choice.All told, this is a fascinating book not for the faint of heart, some of the material is graphic and hard to read.It is about as close to looking in the face of evil as most people would want to go.


  • Shawna

    What I didn't like about this book was Douglas's tendancy to reference stories that he already explored in his first book. Like the offensive ploy he claims he used that got Richard Speck to finally speak to authorities. He also reiterated the medical condition that downed him during the Green River Killer investigation. (Way to go on that case man, you guys finally nailed him after what 20 years?) Douglas did write about some interesting cases that I hadn't read about before, and the book held [...]


  • Maureen

    There is no question that John Douglas was good at his job as a profiler at the FBI, and he helped develop a methodology for interviewing serial killers that has provided valuable data. That being said, I have a few points of contention. One is that there has been such an emphasis on serial killers, that everyone who murders someone is liable to be viewed in the same way. Most murderers kill people they know, and much of the time alcohol or illegal substances are involved, or mental illness, or [...]


  • Robert Finnan

    John Douglas may or may not be a great profiler, he certainly seems to think he is and doesn't mind telling the reader so ad nauseum.But whatever his merits as a profiler are, his ability to author a coherent, interesting book is nil.He constantly loses focus and goes off on tangents completely irrelevant to the subject at hand.Three long and boring chapters are devoted to one murder, that of a female Marine.He goes into excruciating detail of her family's history in the most stultifying prose i [...]


  • Sheila Myers

    "Enjoy" is a word most people probably wouldn't use to describe how they felt about a book of this type, but it's how I feel. There's a lot of interesting information presented in "Journey Into Darkness" and, even though I've done a lot of research for my novels, there's a lot in the book that's new to me. Instead of focusing only on the crime and the criminal like a lot of true crime books, I liked the way John Douglas also discusses how criminal profiling started and how it's used, along with [...]


  • April

    I skimmed most of this because the author can sort of go on and on but it was still interesting to a crime/FBI/profiling freak such as me. Plus I now see where Criminal Minds gets 99% of its storylines from!


  • Mkittysamom

    This was hard to read, especially to watch John suffer. It was great though, he always does a great job telling his story!


  • Trudy

    It is interesting to see what makes criminals tick. I like to think I learned ways to protect myself and the people I care about. I choose not to be a victim.


  • Laurie

    Don't read too much of these, you will start seeing these traits in the most unlikely places and people


  • Shad

    I liked Mindhunter better because the author stuck to what he knew and kept to a tighter structure. This work was less organized and was all over the map on subject matter and purpose.


  • Susan

    Rather boring around the middle


  • Julia

    I'm very fond of John Douglas' work, both as the lead FBI profiler and as a writer talking about his professional experiences. This is the 3rd book of his that I've read, and I continue to be happy with his writing, although of the three I have experience with, Journey Into Darkness is perhaps my least favorite. Published in the mid to late 90s, Douglas shares his experiences with some cases that were, at the time, topical. One of the last chapters is dedicated to how Douglas would've advised LA [...]


  • Mandy

    Journey Into Darkness was not what I expected. I expected a much deeper look into the things a profiler uses to create the profile, this book mearly contained stories of cases in which the profile was confirmed. For example I would have liked more information on what elements made a subject disorganised or if and how a profile might change according to unexpected behavours. Also as someone who doesn't have children I found the first 200 pages boring and very hard to read, I almost lost interest. [...]


  • Fiona

    A lot of this book can be found (worded slightly differently) in the first book I read by the author, Mind Hunter: Inside the FBI's Elite Serial Crime Unit. The real value in this novel is both in the later publication date - a lot changed between 1988 and 1996 - and in the story of Suzanne Marie Collins.Ms Collins was a Marine, killed just before graduating from Arlington. John Douglas took a really interesting approach to how he presented her story; first, beginning the book from the point of [...]


  • Kelly

    This book has a lot of repeating stories & sentiment from Mindhunter. This book repeated so much information it became pretty tedious, especially since I read his two books back to back. The new cases he did cover this time were more detailed and all focused on the victims point of views & lives. Which I appreciated, but it could've been 200 pages shorter. I respect his work and his profession. Personally I was more interesting in the use of behavioral science and psychology behind catch [...]


  • Amber

    I can't say I'm thrilled I read this one and I ended up skimming a bit. The first half was all about crimes against children and it was difficult to read. But it did have some really great advice to parents, from an FBI profiler, on how to keep our kids safe without smothering them.


  • John

    Another one. The evil of psychotic ppl. The art & science of profiling, the terrible things the FBI had to see and think to give the victims justice, to capture the perpetrator based on the crime scene. God bless these men.


  • Enigmaticblue

    This book was a little preachy in places, but there was some really good advice about how to protect your kids from predators.


  • Rebecca

    I pretty much read every John Douglas that comes down the pike, sooner or later. Although I use what he teachers in less life-and-death situations, some of his knowledge and techniques come in to play in my field as well, so I find him educational as well as.I'm not sure I want to say "entertaining" in this context, so let's go with "enlightening." I will put a disclaimer here, in case no one reads further. Even though in many ways this book is less graphic than some of his others, it deals a lo [...]


  • S Sean

    Journey Into Darkness sort of reads like a B-sides compilation of leftovers from Mindhunter, which Douglas/Olshaker published just a couple years earlier. This is not necessarily a bad thing, since Mindhunter was such a groundbreaking and damned interesting book.The first few chapters of the book are in the Mindhunter mold, with Douglas at times sharing a rapid-fire accounting of the interesting details from many of the serial criminal cases on which he consulted during his storied career, punct [...]


  • Maria

    Любите ли вы сериал Criminal Minds, так люблю его я? А я его, признаюсь, очень люблю. Прекрасно снятый сериал, с замечательными актерами, да еще и про маньяков и серийных убийц! Прелесть! Речь в нем идет о команде агентов ФБР- профайлеров, которые охотятся на серийных убийц, насильник [...]


  • Christina

    Being a devoted viewer or shows like CSI & Criminal Minds I thought this book would be interesting since it's written by one of the original Criminal Mind profilers for the FBI. Of course it was more hard to follow these crimes since you know from the start they are real cases. I did question whether I should let myself into that mind set or not. I did like how the author would go back & retrace where perhaps earlier efforts form law enforcement may have missed clues or signs on these cr [...]


  • Quin

    John Douglas and Mark Olshaker's Journey Into Darkness is a great book. The book does not really have a theme due to the fact that is is non-fiction. However, believe the point of the book is to give the reader insight into the mind of a criminal profiler. As a person who is very interested in serial killers and profiling, this is a must read in my mind. The authors use a style of writing that is very informative yet makes the reader feel like the authors are talking directly to them. Douglas us [...]


  • Sean

    Journey Into Darkness by John E. Douglas is a riveting view into the darkness our society can hide. As A parent myself, it feels as though it holds a heavier grasp than those that don't as a lot of the criminals he talks about did stuff to children. The brazen truths, the in-depth experience from the actual profiler that did these cases, to the relatedness one can feel as he's a family man too would merit this book a 5 stars in my opinion. What holds this at 4 stars is the last few chapters. Thi [...]


  • Danesh

    avid watchers of id discovery and ci network will want to read this book. the stories can get one on edge or push one towards paranoia given the sometimes random nature of the crimes, but the author does a good job of presenting the numbers as tools against this kind of thinking (one should focus more on the probability of a crime occurring and the type of victim/situation/etc.). i enjoyed the social psychological aspect that the author implemented, but it seemed superficial and chastising at ti [...]


  • Abby

    This is a very interesting read for anyone interested in criminology or psychology. Douglas helped to pioneer the FBI's Behavioral Analysis Unit, whose members work to profile serial killers and kidnappers, among other criminals, in order to assist in the arrest and sentencing of these individuals. Douglas not only gives overviews of the many, many cases he has worked as part of that unit, but also adds a personal touch by including bits about his personal life and advice for those reading the b [...]


  • Rebecca Brae

    I wanted to read a book about behavior profiling and this was a good one. The author's writing style was conversational, so it was a very easy read. Although the cases were older, I felt the author picked interesting ones and went step by step through his analysis process in a logical and well defined order. Each chapter goes through different kinds of crimes/criminals (except a few in the middle that deal exclusively with child predators and one dedicated to the the family of a victim). The aut [...]
