Houdini Publishing of Las Vegas, Nevada, is proud to announce the release of its most recently published book – “FBI Diary: Profiles of Evil.”
Geno Munari, president of Houdini Publishing said, “We are pleased to add an internationally-known former FBI Profiler to our growing number of acclaimed authors. Pete Klismet is an award-winning author who has taken his training and experience to a new level, writing a first-of-a-kind, non-fiction book. Pete takes the reader inside the job of an FBI agent, which has never been done. He then recounts his selection as one of the first FBI profilers, and for the first time provides an account of the training FBI profilers received through the legendary Behavioral Sciences Unit at the FBI Academy in Quantico, Virginia.”
“FBI Diary,” according to Klismet, “Is essentially a three-part book. First, I try to provide the reader with some insight into what an FBI agent actually does. Secondly, I give the reader an inside look at the training we received in the controversial, but an extraordinary and ground-breaking concept of Psychological Profiling made famous by the Academy Award-winning movie “Silence of the Lambs,” as well as other movies and television shows which followed, including the highly-popular “Criminal Minds.” Finally, I go into several cases I worked on in the Midwest, and how the cases were ultimately solved.”
Munari went on to say, “What I really liked about the book was how Pete went through several high-profile cases he profiled for state and local law enforcement officers. In addition to his more traditional FBI tasks such as investigating bank robberies, kidnappings, fugitive apprehensions and complex drug cases, Pete was tasked with assisting law enforcement in solving violent crimes.
“His case histories are presented in a factual, yet fascinating manner. They include the bizarre, such as the sexual offender who wore diapers and was primarily attracted to babies, and the infamous like the serial killer of prepubescent boys, John Joubert. And finally the frustrating, like the accurate, yet ignored, profile Pete prepared on the murderer of an elderly woman and the subsequent arrest, prosecution, and conviction of six innocent individuals who collectively served more than 70 years in prison. Eventually, the true killer was identified and was virtually identical to Pete’s profile.
“The last case has been described as the ‘Greatest miscarriage of justice in United States history.’ Pete does an excellent job of describing an unimaginable chain of events which led to six innocent people being convicted, and three of them serving over seventeen years in prison each.”
A best-selling author and reviewer of “FBI Diary” commented, “I’m glad Pete is on our side!” Legendary FBI Profiler Roy Hazelwood reviewed the book and said: “Pete has a fascinating story to tell, and the reader is fortunate to have been invited to listen. Read and enjoy.”
