This disturbing piece of non fiction tells the story of John Robinson the first internet serial killer With that said this book is NOT FOR EVERYONE I am a mature adult who has studied serial killers in hopes to find some answers on why our society creates such monsters and I was very disturbed at many many parts of this bookRobinson started off his life of crime many years before the internet became a household must have He smooth talked his way into countless jobs and swindled unknown amounts of money from companies and individuals One of the most disturbing things he did involved the murder of a young single woman and the fake adoption of her daughter whom his own sibling raised all so he could make several thousand dollars As he grew older technology made it easier for him to find naiive people that he did horrific things toAlso disturbing is that Robinson was considered a model father and grandfather by many His wife stood by him through numerous affairs and imprisonments This book is a must read for any interested in psychology and human nature Why do some stay in violent relationships Why do intelligent people fall prey to a man who seeks to rule over others What makes someone so bold so cruel so self centered so violent It was also an EXCELLENT reminder that the internet is not this safe haven people can go to and become someone else there is a real danger when talking with strangers over the internetMy only problem with the book was that as much as the author tried to remain non judgemental and neutral he clearly was all for the conviction of Robinson and rarely focused on the arguments of the defense Granted the book had been written after the verdict had been given and I certainly agree that Robinson is a sick guilty person but I still believe that a book should cover all angles Just a thoughtThe second half of the book discusses the trial and brings us to modern day Robinson is still alive behind bars but I don't feel the world is any safer

E disappearances Most disturbing was the hunting ground in which Robinson seduced his prey the world of cyberspace Haunting chat rooms targeting vulnerable women and exploiting the anonymity of the Internet his bloody spree was finally halted by a relentless parole officer who spent ten years trying to nail Robinson. A reconstruction of the life of John Robinson white collar criminal turned serial killer The title is a bit misleading actually as this book covers much than Robinson’s eventual adoption of the internet as hunting ground for new sexual and financial victims Just as a portrait of a criminal life this book is riveting this would be something I like because I really like that sort of thing Robinson conducted an extraordinary forty year campaign of lies trickery financial schemes uncountable relationships sexual domination and murder to say nothing of raising four children and being an active member of his community One of the most extraordinary aspects of the book is the way it tells the story of Robinson’s women his victims reaching from beyond the grave to catch him in mistakes and his wife and daughters rallying to savagely defend him The book mostly steers clear of the idiot TV moves – he’s a killer because his mother was cold – and it maintains an impressive control of fact and speculation and psychologyA little bit of history here; Douglas was instrumental in starting the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit and ran it for many many years He’s brilliant and perceptive But well man’s got issues Most of which had no business in this refreshingly objective book I was particularly unimpressed when he gave the full names of psychiatrists who had examined Robinson during a prison stay and reported him sane and safe Arguments about the supremacy of well himself over mental health professionals aside that’s just tacky Also I’m not going to forgive him this sentence offered while discussing one of Robinson’s early victims for either content or syntax “Sometimes she acted as if she were hardly disabled at all racing other people in wheelchairs at the mall and enjoying the thrill of beating them and exploding into laughter
