Dr. Erickson’s newest book, Serial Killers and the Aftermath, is unique from any book I have ever read. Dr. Erickson successfully blends three book-types into one book. In the first chapters, she shares with the reader her life-journey that took a little girl who lived in a rural, South Dakota farmhouse, with no electricity or running water, to being a well-respected, professional woman who obtained her Doctorate and became a nationally known security-consultant and expert witness. They also introduce her husband and professional business partner—Arnie Stenseth. His written contributions to the book provide a down-to-earth perspective, from the criminals he has interviewed, which he writes with wit and a first-person candor. The book then transitions to study of a Forensic Sociologist and how it differs from the other social sciences and psychology-related sciences. This portion of the book is written like a text book, but with personality and a sense of humor. The next chapters take us into four of her serial killer cases. Presented with a cool, gritty professionalism, the cases are sometimes disturbing, even to a former Detroit cop like me. Her book provided me with information on the why behind the creation of serial killers, psychopaths, and other violent criminal types that I’ve never seen. When you read this book, you’ll never feel the same about a crime novel again.
