It’s a real pleasure today to be joining the Urbane Publications Extravaganza, organised by Kelly at #LoveBooksGroupTours. My featured book is something rather different for me – Mind Games by Paul Harrison, available in hardcover, for kindle and as an audiobook…
Mind Games presents leading profiler Paul Harrison’s unique experiences dealing with the worst offenders incarcerated in the global criminal justice system. It will shock, surprise and astound the reader.
Paul Harrison has a unique set of skills and experiences based upon his life in the British police service and later as a crime writer.
Now, for the first time ever, you can read of his gripping experiences as a profiler dealing with the world’s most notorious serial killers and violent offenders.
Mind Games is a forensic examination of the psyche of the world’s most vicious and evil offenders in their own words, just as they related it. It’s an exploration into the darkest recesses of the criminal mind and possibly the most in-depth examination of the serial killer phenomenon ever published.
I have an extract to share, the book’s preface: and although it’s a tad outside my usual comfort zone, I found it quite fascinating. You can read it here.
About the Author
Paul Harrison has spent much of his professional life working within the UK’s criminal justice system, primarily as a police officer, but also working with the Judiciary at the Royal Courts of Justice in London. He later worked voluntarily with victim focused agencies supporting abused children and males. As a police officer he had a diverse and interesting career, serving as a dog handler, intelligence officer, as a detective and later, as a profiler. Working closely with the now defunct FBI Behavioural Science Unit in Quantico, he gained a unique and remarkable insight into the minds of some of the world’s most violent criminals, including serious sexual offenders, serial killers and murderers.
As a crime writer he has had conversations with many of the UK’s most infamous felons and killers. His conversation portfolio reads like a Who’s Who of murderers. Paul has researched, studied and analysed serial killers for over three decades and is now widely regarded as one of the world’s top experts on the phenomenon. As an author, he’s penned thirty-three traditionally published books (mainly true crime) and will publish his first novel, Chasing Monsters, in 2018. In his spare time he enjoys watching his beloved Leeds United, walking his German Shepherd dog (Sherlock), and spending quality time with his family. A seasoned event speaker, Paul is popular across the entire crime genre (fiction and non-fiction) and discusses his police career and criminal conversations with killers to sell out audiences.
