ABOUT THE BOOK
Season Four of Criminal Minds aired on CBS September 24, 2008, and ran until May 20, 2009. One of the biggest events in this season is the temporary absence of Agent Jennifer JJ Jareau, who leaves for several episodes while on maternity leave. Agent Jordan Todd steps in to fill JJs role as the BAUs media liaison, though she returns to her former post in the FBIs counter-terrorism unit when JJs maternity leave ends.
Criminal Minds follows an elite team of FBI criminal investigators, known as the Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU), as its members travel the country working to solve grisly murder mysteries and arresting the serial killers responsible for them.
During its premier season, Criminal Minds was the newest iteration of crime scene investigation television programs, competing with such shows as CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Crossing, Law & Order: SUV, and Medium, many of which were also broadcast on CBS. Given this context, Criminal Minds used its first season to set itself apart from the crowd. At the start of Season Four, Criminal Minds had established itself as a leader in the crime scene investigation genre.

EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK
This fundamental theme is articulated early on in the series history when former Agent Gideon reminds Agent Reid that for a psychological profiler, the most effective weapon is the ability to empathize to humanize an unsubs victim (TV, Criminal Minds: Episode Guide). Gideon tells Reid that only by reversing the dehumanizing effects of crime and murder, returning to the victims their dignity and worth as individuals, can an effective and accurate profile of the perpetrator be constructed. Thus, for the characters of Criminal Minds, solving crimes and arresting serial killers is ultimately an act of recognizing and maintaining the value inherent in each individual victim.
Season Four of Criminal Minds presents a series of exciting, suspenseful, and often times eerie tales that work together to create a larger story of dedication, friendship, and cooperation. Although they must face some of the most horrific and truly grotesque crimes imaginable, members of the BAU team consistently rely on logic, intellect, instinct, empathy, and even compassion to infiltrate the frighteningly deranged minds of killers. By doing so, they help remove criminals from society and prevent the occurrence of any future violence...
