Key Features

* A statistically-based tool that can inform investigative strategies in kidnapping cases
* An essential resource for any professional who regularly deals with the subject of kidnapping
* Contains appendices that provide a concise summary of the statistical information presented in the text


Kidnapping: An Investigator's Guide to Profiling is based on a three-part analysis of 100 randomly selected kidnapping cases prosecuted in the United States that have survived Supreme Court appeal. The results of the analysis are incorporated into each chapter as part of the exploration of the inductive profile of each subtype, thereby offering a statistically based tool that can inform investigative strategies and the allocation of limited resources. The analysis includes standardized input from four levels of professional law enforcement including a forensic psychologist, a crime analyst, a detective, and a city prosecutor.

Kidnapping: An Investigator's Guide to Profiling is an excellent resource for law enforcement and mental health professionals who are investigating and analyzing specific incidents of kidnapping, and will also appeal to the 6,000+ members of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences (AAFS).
