Disclosure —> Many years ago, I worked with the author at a Wyoming newspaper.

True crime fans already are familiar with Ron Franscell. This award-winning journalist has written nonfiction books about America’s most shocking crimes, meticulously researched travel guides to sites of murder and mayhem, taken readers inside the mind of a coroner, and provided on-camera insight for several true-crime TV series. Mr. Franscell also is the go-to guy when mainstream media need a down-to-earth expert's voice of reason to make sense of serial killers, mass murderers, and shocking incidents that make one’s skin crawl at the evil that men do.

In “ShadowMan: An Elusive Psycho Killer and the Birth of FBI Profiling,” Mr. Franscell turns back the clock to the early 1970s — a time when law enforcement officers began unlocking the secrets of criminal behavior by developing the now-common science of profiling to describe, track, and capture offenders. Nowhere was this emerging insight more needed than in finding the man who sliced open a family’s camp tent, kidnapped a 7-year-old girl, and cruelly taunted the victim’s family with phone calls. When LEOs finally caught David Meirhofer, the suspect confessed to four murders before hanging himself in jail.

Mr. Franscell’s storytelling talents carry this gripping tale along with the page-turning speed of a thriller and the eloquence of Truman Capote or Norman Mailer. And like most good stories, the ending might surprise you.
