Retired agent and legendary FBI criminal profiler John Douglas reviews his new book, The Killer’s Shadow and his prison conversation with Joseph Paul Franklin, a White Nationalist serial killer responsible for killing more than 20 people and wounding five, to include magazine publisher Larry Flynt and civil rights leader Vernon Jordan. Douglas also discusses the popularity of true crime, and the Netflix series Mindhunter, inspired by his best-selling book of the same name. John Douglas served in the FBI for 25 years. In addition to being the founding father of criminal profiling and modern criminal investigative analysis, he is a true authority on serial killers and violent predators. Douglas has aided law enforcement agencies around the country and overseas; he was also the inspiration for characters in Silence of the Lambs, Criminal Minds, and now Mindhunter.
