Does it take a killer to catch a killer?
Men and women of law enforcement work hard to solve every murder, but some cases remain stubbornly open; they run cold. Dark Minds reignites interest in these cases through two obsessive investigators: true crime author M. William Phelps and criminal profiler, John Kelly. They bring fresh eyes and a different perspective to the crimes, using the combined instincts of an investigative journalist, a psychological profiler and an anonymous serial killer serving multiple life sentences. Together they review known evidence of each case and speculate who the killer might be. By talking to police, survivors, family members and experts, Phelps and Kelly build a profile of the murderer.
