About
In the fall of 1980, legendary FBI profiler John Douglas was called into the manhunt for a white supremacist serial killer. A highly mobile and experienced sniper, the fugitive Joseph Paul Franklin was suspected of racially motivated murders around the country. Not only was he capable of taking more innocent lives, there was also a fear that he would target President Jimmy Carter during the 1980 presidential campaign.

Recounting the methodical detective work that led to Franklin's capture, The Killer's Shadow reveals how the case helped prove the power of criminal profiling when the stakes couldn't have been higher. Years later, after Franklin's conviction and subsequent confessions to a horrific array of other murders, Douglas sat across from Franklin in federal prison to complete the profile and understand what motivated his terrifying evolution from hate speech to racially and religiously inspired killing. This Mindhunter case - as chilling and relevant today as it was forty years ago - goes inside the vicious cycle of far-right extremism and shows that to emerge from its shadow of hate, we must first understand its origin.
