About the Author

John Douglas, the legendary FBI criminal profiler, special agent, and veteran author of true crime books, has spent more than three decades hunting, researching, analyzing, and confronting America's most disturbing criminals. A veteran of the United States Air Force, he has directly worked and/or had overall supervision in over 5,000 violent crime cases over the past 48 years. He is currently chairman of the board of the "Cold Case Foundation." One of the foremost experts and investigators of criminal minds and motivations, he currently lives in the Washington, D.C. area. Mark Olshaker is an Emmy Award-winning documentary filmmaker and author of eleven nonfiction books and five novels, including Einstein's Brain and The Edge. His books with former FBI Special Agent and criminal profiling pioneer John Douglas, beginning with Mindhunter and, most recently, Law & Disorder, have sold millions of copies and have been translated into many languages. Mindhunter is now a dramatic series on Netflix, directed by David Fincher. He and his wife Carolyn, an attorney, live in Washington, D.C.


"Fast-paced tale of the search for a racist serial killer in the early days of criminal profiling...A taut, terrifying view of White supremacy taken to murderous extremes, now all too common." -- Kirkus Reviews
"This book was not only educational but terrifying. Franklin's gone, but who is to say how many more Franklins are out there?" -- Alabama Public Radio
"John Douglas and Mark Olshaker, the authors of Mindhunter, return with a chilling true crime story that feels all too relevant in today's climate, despite the fact that it covers a case from the 1970s." -- PopSugar
