The Remarkable Career of Britain's Foremost Criminal Psychologist

The autobiography of Paul Britton, one of the foremost offender profilers in the world. What he searches for at the scene of a crime are not fingerprints, fibres or blood stains, he looks for the "mind trace" left behind by those responsible, the psychological characteristics that can help the police to identify and understand the nature of the perpetrator. Over the past dozen years, Britton has assisted the police in over 100 cases involving murder, rape, arson, extortion and kidnapping. Among them were the murder of Jamie Bulger on a lonely railway line in Liverpool, the abduction of baby Abbie Humphries, the brutal slaying of Rachel Nickell on Wimbledon Common and the notorious "House of Horror" in Gloucester. He has helped to solve some of Britain's most baffling cases, and has also advised the FBI and the Russian Ministry of the Interior.

Top 100 Books Reviewer

This book offers a fascinating and true to life insight of the work of a psychologist in some of the most notorious murders to grip the UK in the 1980s and 1990s.

The book begins by giving you an insight into the authors life growing up, going through school in a time when the type school you went to and the career you eventually entered depended more upon your class than ability, through to his eventual qualification as a clinical psychologist.

The book then quickly turns to a series of vicious murders that the author was drafted in by the police to work on during the 1980s and 1990s, some of which benefited from more media coverage than others.

The authors role was, as outlined in the book, to aid the police inquiry by giving them a psychological profile of the killer based upon what was evident at a crime scene in order that they be caught before they strike again. This was at the time, like DNA, a relatively new tool in police investigations, so was under an intensely critical spotlight, not only be the media, but also from those who were schooled in traditional British policing.

Interestingly, in the final chapter the author also makes a note about how in the next 10-20 years that psychological profiling would become a routine part of serious crime investigations and that it would become 'sexy' enough to be serialised on TV.

This really is a book that is gripping, easy to read and very difficult to put down. A recommended read!

For anyone interested in true crime and forensic psychology, this really is worth a look. It is very well written and you will find yourself struggling to close it.

 Hard but interesting

| | See all drijonezy's reviews (18)

this is the hardest book i ve had to read in well over 10 years and i ve had to read the old testament and all 32 chronicles of the pre-existent punishment for blasphemy. though it did contain a lot of interesting facts of true events i was more interested in how far i had left to read. it was neither an autobiography or a unbiased none fiction book and the way it was writen wasnt able to hold my attention it was a mix between crime reports and the way news reads sound! over all if you put alot of effoert in you might enjoy it for me it just wasnt worth my effort!

 Some sick stuff but brilliant read

Could not put this book down. Its quite detailed and not always the sort of thing you want to read late at night, but I just found myself having to read more.
Very very interesting
