nacey's review of Paul Britton, Ian Holm, The Jigsaw Man

★★★★☆

“I read The Jigsaw Man back in 1997 when it was first...”

Good Points
A very interesting insight into how offender profiling works.

Bad Points
A little one-sided; Paul tells only the tales of those profiles found to be accurate, and at times sickening in its praise for the police and offender profiling.

General Comments
I read The Jigsaw Man back in 1997 when it was first released, and I couldn't put it down. I've just re-read it, and again found it a fascinating and absorbing read. It is elegantly written, using enough 'psycho' terminology to impress, yet still be understandable. It reads like a series of short stories; some of the most bizarre and frightening true crime stories of the 1980's and 90's. Anyone who remembers 'baby James', the West's, Rachel Nickell, Stephanie Slater, would find this book an interesting trip down memory lane.
