Telling the community a serial killer is out there stirs up a lot of unpleasant attention.
Because I never plan anything out ahead of time, I'm always in the process of learning about my characters. Without a biographical sketch to guide me, I discover things about my heroines as the stories unfold. Only in 'Body Double' did I discover that Maura's mother was a serial killer.
Electronic music used pure sounds, completely calibrated. You had to think digitally, as it were, in a way that allowed you to extend serial ideas into other parameters through technology.
Police are reluctant to label a murder as a possible serial homicide.
Serial killing is not about sex at all, but about power and control and revenge on society.
I did a lot of research on real serial killers, and they're not Hannibal Lecters. They're cruel men who are given the opportunity to do something terrible, and a lot of the time it's about impotence. They feel powerless in the real world.
I wrote a spec script that people really liked: a political serial based on Jeffrey's Toobin's 'A Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy.' It was the first thing I had ever written with any political subject matter in it.
I want to create an environment where I can create technology, get it into the hands of someone to market it, and move on to other technologies so I can keep innovating.

There are many more serial killers living outside the prison walls than inside.
We assume people we know can't be serial killers.
I think of myself as a fairly logical, scientific and somewhat reserved person. Maura Isles, the Boston medical examiner who appears in five of my books, is me. Almost everything I use in describing her, from her taste in wine to her biographical data, is taken from my own family. Except I don't have a serial killer as a mother!
Outside of dumb luck, the number one way serial killers are caught is through the help of the public.
