Final Victim's hunters are a male customs officer with a reputation for getting results without caring whose toes he steps on, and a brilliant female profiler relegated to typing case files in the basement.
Ultimately, the familiarity of the book was its downfall for me. I appreciated the research, I was somewhat interested in the technology (computer and police), but really, I didn't come away from reading this book with any new insights, or with the feeling that I had enjoyed my adventure-by-proxy.
This is a very professional book, and you won't waste you time reading it, but it is unlikely that it will give you that special joy you get from discovering a new book for your 'favourites' shelf.
