Serial Crime: Theoretical and Practical Issues in Behavioral Profiling successfully connects concepts and creates links to criminal behavior across crimes -murder, sexual assault, and arson- something no other book available does. The connection of serial behavior to profiling, the most useful tool in discovering behavior patterns, is new to the body of literature available and serves to examine the ideal manner in which profiling can be used in conjunction with psychology to positively affect criminal investigations.

* Provides a theoretical and practical foundation for understanding the motivation and dynamics in a range of serial offenses

* Illustrates the promise, purposes and pitfalls of behavioral profiling in the investigation of various serial crimes

* Case examples offer real-world uses of behavioral profiling in investigations, and highlight a variety of issues in understanding and investigating serial crime
