A freak accident in rural Wyoming leads the sheriff's department to arrest a man for a possible double homicide, but further investigations suggest a much more horrifying discovery - a serial killer who has been kidnapping, torturing, and mutilating victims all over the United States for at least 25 years. The suspect claims he is a pawn in a huge labyrinth of lies and deception - can he be believed?
The case is immediately handed over to the FBI, but this time they're forced to ask for outside help. Ex-criminal behavior psychologist and lead detective with the Ultra Violent Crime Unit of the LAPD Robert Hunter is asked to run a series of interviews with the apprehended man. These interviews begin to reveal terrifying secrets that no one could've foreseen, including the real identity of a killer so elusive that no one, not even the FBI, had any idea he existed...until now.

Silence of the Lambs meets a textbook
If there was less time spent listening to endless drivel from the "bad guy".
The Burning Room by Michael Connelly
Robert Hunter I suppose as he was the main character
Lucien..... which would make it just a criminal profiling textbook I believe
Disappointing read. The rest of the Robert Hunter books are fast paced and exciting with twists and turns. This was just long passages by the Hannibal Lechter type character about how he beat the criminal profiling textbooks... with just way too much time spent reading out bitter diatribes. I fell asleep more listening to this book than any other. Disappointing from start to finish.
