Criminal Minds Book Info: "Criminal Minds: Killer Profile"

Criminal Minds: The second book in the Criminal Minds series written by Max Collins is being released in May of 2008. Here is some info from the publisher: Criminal Minds: Killer Profile by Max Collins. Release: May 2008.
"They're members of the Behavioral Analysis Unit, an elite team of FBI profilers tasked with examining the nation's most twisted criminal minds—and anticipating their next moves before they strike again....

The BAU team is called in to help Chicago detectives investigate a series of bizarre murders: a couple shot to death in a parked car; two women strangled in a public park; and a young man's decomposed body stuffed in a plastic barrel. Though equally violent and disturbing, the crimes seem unrelated—until profiler David Rossi makes the connection.

Rossi recognizes each grisly tableau, murders modeled on the crime scenes of three of the country's most notorious serial killers: the Son of Sam, Ted Bundy, and Jeffrey Dahmer. Someone is taking the cult of true crime to terrifying extremes...and since there are so many killers left to emulate, Rossi wonders how he can possibly profile a killer who's hiding within the killer profiles of others."
