Personal Quote:

[on fictional characters based on him:] What they've done is misinterpret my books. If I watch Profiler (1996), it drives me crazy when she [Ally Walker, as Waters] gets this look on her face, and she has these flashbacks and starts seeing blood and gore. [Salon.com, 8 July 1999] See more »

Trivia:

Head of the FBI's Investigative Support Unit - the team that tackles the most baffling and senseless of unsolved violent crimes. He was the model for the Jack Crawford character in The Silence of the Lambs (1991). See more »
