When he was ultimately captured, BTK was shockingly revealed to be Dennis Rader, a 61-year-old married man with two children.

Good product, bad packaging
The information about Rader in this book is fascinating. Douglas' writing is mediocre, but since that's not his specialism one can overlook that (some better editing might be in order, but see next point). As many other people point out, he comes across quite arrogantly, but in his job that's more or less a prerequisite. Anything less than complete self assurance would be useless when trying to deal with people like Dennis Rader.
Regarding the narration...where to start. Someone narrating a book written by an FBI aren't ought to be able to pronounce Quantico, for starters. There were plenty of other mispronunciations to go around. I found it generally robotic and badly paced, with no pauses between paragraphs where a moment is needed to shift location or time. I considered giving up but the content was worth enduring it.
