Inside the Mind of BTK: The True Story Behind the Thirty-Year Hunt for the Notorious Wichita Serial Killer

btk

Authors: John Douglas and Johnny Dodd

My Rating: 2/5

A long title for a very long read. The book itself was only 336 pages, but reading this was frustrating and tough to finish.

The subject itself, is fascinating. It is a gruesome tale, and the book is filled with details about the case you wouldn’t be able to find anywhere else. This would be one of my favourite books ever, if it had been written by someone who was not so self-centred and arrogant. I haven’t read anything else by John Douglas, so I can’t say if all of his books have the same egotistical writing style like this one does, but this surely hit the mark of it making the book super annoying, despite the topic being very interesting.

If you can get past the “legendary FBI profiler” and his unnecessary personal details (i.e. I do not care what you were thinking about when you were making love to your wife,) you will learn a lot more information on BTK in this book than you ever could from the media.
