The science of criminal profiling
I have listened to this several times and have gone over some aspects as this audio book and found it truly ear opening and enlightening listen to. The author has profiled some world known criminals including the author of the Jon Benet Ramsey ransom note and Ted Bundy. The author, Roger L. Depue, talks of his 3 years as a priest after the early death of his beloved wife to cancer in her 40's and subsequent return to the FBI Behavioural Science Unit when he felt ready to confront the evil that criminals do and his work in preparing to capture them. If you like to watch true crime this is a good listen.

Not what I expected
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
I expected this book to be more about the cases he worked on and the overall experience. Instead, he writes about how his career developed and various roles he played. There is some information about the actual work he did, but it just wasn't very interesting.
Has Between Good and Evil turned you off from other books in this genre?
Not necessarily, I'll just be more cautious in reading the summaries before purchasing.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

He Can Talk the Talk - He is the Real Deal
Roger has come through his life's journey thus far and gives back to us all in this book. Perhaps some readers will only be curious about those who commit violent crimes. Roger's book is a Meta view for those who seek more knowledge about evil's origins and provides a thoughtful premise on how to bring about a more peaceful society. Roger speaks most empathically about the vulnerability of abused children. The book is engrossing as you see Roger go from public to private professional service and through a deep personal loss to three years seeking healing of his soul. He walks the walk and can therefore "talk the talk". I know from having worked with him professionally.
