Former FBI profiler Jana Monroe's fascinating book is in part the story of some of history's most troubling serial killers. But it's also the story of a smart, capable woman building a career in the male-dominated field of law enforcement. The result is an addictively readable, insightful, and occasionally inspiring book.
Jana Monroe was an outstanding FBI Agent and leader who made important and long-term valuable contributions to the Bureau. As Director, I was very grateful for Jana's and her family's leadership while serving at FBI headquarters.
A shot of pure adrenaline for true crime fans, this vivid, fast-paced memoir charts the barrier-breaking career of its remarkable author: a real-life Clarice Starling whose work as the only female member of the FBI's fabled Behavioral Science Unit demonstrated that a woman could be just a coolly competent and tough-minded as any man.
