The Evil That Men Do

FBI Profiler Roy Hazelwood's Journey into the Minds of Sexual Predators

Stephen G. Michaud with Roy Hazelwood

St. Martin's Press

Twenty-two years in the FBI, sixteen of them as a member of the Bureau's Behavioral Science Unit. Thousands of homicides, rapes, suicides, and other gruesome crimes. Roy Hazelwood, like many investigators, has seen it all. But unlike most, he's gone further -- into the dark and twisted psyches of serial killers and sadistic sexual offenders -- and has emerged as one of the world's foremost experts on the sexual criminal.

Now, acclaimed true-crime writer Stephen G. Michaud takes you into the heart of Hazelwood's work through dozens of startling cases, including those of the Lonely Heart Killer, the "Ken and Barbie" killings, the Atlanta Child Murders, and many more. Here Michaud and Hazelwood go beyond the lurid details, to a deeper understanding of the depraved minds behind the grisly crimes, in a stark, startling, and fascinating work you will not soon forget.

REVIEWS

Praise for The Evil That Men Do

"This book tells it all."---Robert K. Ressler, best-selling author of I Have Lived in the Monster and Whoever Fights Monsters

"Hazelwood's authentic and unique perspective pierces a darkness most of us would like to believe doesn't exist." ---Chris Carter, creator of The X-Files

"Nobody knows this territory better than Roy Hazelwood. He was first to explore the world of sexual predators, and charted it with an accuracy and insight that those of us who followed after have used for guidance ever since. In this outstanding book, Hazelwood takes us all with him into the belly of the beast---and more important, into the mind of the beast."---Dr. Linda Fairstein

"When the world's best true crime writer teams with the world's best sex crimes profiler, they produce a book that should have a warning label, 'DO NOT READ ALONE AT NIGHT.' This is a textbook for law enforcement and the forensic-science professional and a compelling description of extremely dangerous people that the lay reader will not be able to put down."---Dr. Lowell Levine, Director, Medicolegal Investigations Unit, New York State Police

"As an experienced forensic scientist, I knew the material was not new, but as a woman, I locked the doors and drew the drapes. The actions and thought processes of the criminals described in this book will completely unnerve ALL women. It is scarier than any horror fiction because it is real."---Cathryn L. Levine, M.S., M.A., Fellow, American Board of Criminalistics

"Star profiler Roy Hazelwood and true-crime guru Stephen G. Michaud---what a combination! For criminologists and crime buffs alike, they have produced the book of the year."---Jack Olsen, best-selling author of Salt of the Earth and Hastened to the Grave

"Once again author Stephen G. Michaud showcases his remarkable talent for taking the reader deep into the twisted and all-too-real world of criminal behavior. The Evil That Men Do rings out like a warning shot to potential crime victims everywhere."---Carlton Stowers, best-selling author of To the Last Breath

"Take it from me: Roy's insights and experience prove that he is an expert in crime analysis. The story he has to tell is well worth listening to."---John Douglas, New York Times best-0selling author of Mindhunter
