As any police officer who has ever walked a beat or worked a crime scene knows, the street has its hot spots, patterns, and rhythms: drug dealers work their markets, prostitutes stroll their favorite corners, and burglars hit their favorite neighborhoods. But putting all the geographic information together in cases of serial violent crime (murder, rape, arson, bombing, and robbery) is highly challenging. Just ask the homicide detectives of the Los Angeles Police Department who hunted the Hillside Stranglers, or law enforcement officers in Louisiana who tracked the brutal South Side rapist. Geographic Profiling introduces and explains this cutting-edge investigative methodology in-depth. Used to analyze the locations of a connected series of crimes to determine the most likely area of offender residence, geographic profiling allows investigators and law enforcement officers to more effectively manage information and focus their investigations. This extensive and exhaustive work explains geographic profiling theories and principles, and includes an extensive review of the literature and research in the areas of criminal profiling, forensic behavioral science, serial violent crime, environmental criminology, and the geography of crime. For investigators and police officers deployed in the field, as well as criminal analysts, Geographic Profiling is a "must have" reference.

What would drive her to such a desolate New York street … down such dark stairs … to do something so dangerous? She was the last of five strangers compelled to the same basement room. None of them had been there before—but they believed it was a place to share their stories, to erase their fears, to make the horror of their dreams end. Instead, it was where they met their fate—screaming for their lives in the darkness … Five people all tortured to death. Five people with nothing in common. Or so it seems. But then Detective David Rodriguez and reporter Mari Kinsella begin to find connections among the victims, begin to find others haunted by the same strange nightmares that drove the five to their deaths, begin themselves to fall into a deadly danger that should only exist … in dreams.
