Topics include investigation, offender and geographical profiling, behavioural linkage, and police interrogation of the murderers.Part V, New directions, presents new directions for the study of sexual homicide and discusses the limits of current knowledge related to sexual murderers and their crimes.Offering a broad and comprehensive approach, this Handbook is an indispensable source of information on theory, research, clinical assessment, treatment, and police issues related to sexual murderers and murder."--Provided by publisher.
