Praise for Profiles in Murder:
"Russ Vorpagel was a legend in the FBI. This book is about that legend. It is as exciting as the man himself. Here is the art of profiling — the psychological autopsy of a murder — laid out before you like a series of FBI reports. I invite you to join the most intriguing account of profiling you are ever likely to read."
— Robert Ressler, author of Whoever Fights Monsters
"I am seldom shocked. I was shocked by Russ Vorpagel’s seminar….This book will show you … real cases that will shock you with their depravity, their cruelty, so be prepared. You will learn more about the actual art of profiling than you hoped for. Vorpagel’s instructive techniques are mesmerizing. This is not a television or movie detective who is teaching you; he is the real thing."
— Ann Rule, author of The Stranger Beside Me and Bitter Harvest
"A frank, no-holds-barred chronicle of violence and death in all its brutally shocking, graphic details. Russell Vorpagel delivers his message with astonishing candor… He gives a clear, penetrating glimpse into the minds of sick, depraved, deranged killers involved in serial murders, sexual crimes, and celebrity violence."
— Frank M. Jordan, Former Mayor and Chief of Police, City and County of San Francisco
"This is rip-roaring biography that reads like fiction."
"This book is real….You will ask yourself, ‘Where is this going?’ at the same time you will find yourself unable to set it down. For years to come you will find this book in the offices of homicide investigators and prosecuting attorneys throughout the world in death investigations. This investigating tool is long overdue."
— J. Fred Bowman, Former Chairman, Criminology Department, Yuba Community College
