Praise for ShadowMan

“Ron Franscell has written criminal profiling’s origin story, an urgent and obsessive true-crime tale that transcends the genre. ShadowMan ramps up to an almost unbearable pitch, Mindhunter crossed with ‘American Gothic.’ This chilling story has the ghostly unease of a nightmare—as atmospheric and unnerving a story as you’ll ever read.”—Michael Cannell, author of Incendiary: The Psychiatrist, the Mad Bomber and the Invention of Criminal Profiling
“If any modern crime writer should bear the mantle of the late, great Jack Olsen it is Ron Franscell. He’s one of our most provocative authors in any genre. . . Here, he does his usual splendid job of weaving fear, monstrosity, and place into a vivid, harrowing story about an epic moment in forensic history. Nobody does it better.”—Dr. Vincent DiMaio, celebrated medical examiner and author of Forensic Pathology

“A thrill ride through the entangled brutality and brilliance that gave birth to one of the FBI’s most intriguing forensic tools: criminal profiling.”—John Douglas, legendary FBI profiler and author of Mindhunter
“A brilliant, long overdue page-turner of a story about the FBI Behavioral Sciences Unit Mindhunters.”—Peter Vronsky, author of American Serial Killers

“Ron Franscell has always been in the upper echelon of true-crime authors. ShadowMan is his crowning achievement. Bravo to a master of the genre!”—Gregg Olsen, #1 New York Times bestselling author of If You Tell and The Hive

“A thrilling book about the lengths to which investigators went to catch an elusive killer and a pivotal moment in the history of criminal investigation.”—Library Journal

ShadowMan makes an important contribution to the history of profiling as well as a more gripping true-crime narrative than the popular fiction we see about profilers today.”—Psychology Today
