Brilliant detective work
9 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

The FBI uses profilers to figure out who their cold case perpetrators are and in this drama our hero develops a whole new form of Forensic linguistics to develop his profile. In the process he is up against the entire FBI bureaucracy who is mired in the old ways and who reject Fitz's new techniques. Even with all that without the brother turning him in there still might not be an end to this case.

The battle of wits between Fitz and the unabomber during their interviews is almost worth the entire series. The unabomber has many ideas that will fit well for many potential jury members and so the FBI wants a confession and not merely going to court with their mountain of evidence.

The ideas presented in this series about linguistics are interesting of themselves, the concepts of just what is meant by freedom for instance resonated with so many people.

I give this a big thumbs up!
