Let's Play "Profiler"

By Expatmum @tonihargis
So not content with having my ATM card skimmed during the summer, the Ball & Chain had his Kindle stolen recently. (Not sure where or when). Got up yesterday morning and noticed 18 purchases at 3am (always suspicious) on my Amex card. I bought the Kindle for him so the account was also on my card. I won't go into the sheer tedium of having to close the Kindle account and cancel my Amex card (except to say that Kindle, not Amex, are reimbursing me. Yay Amex) but a profiler would have a blast with the books that were purchased.
No prizes, but let's see who can come up with the most imaginative profile of the Kindle thief:
  • Fight Club; A Novel. 
  • 1811 Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue
  • Tao of Jeet Kune Do
  • The Art of Seduction
  • How to Create the Life you Want
  • Acid Christ (LSD)
  • The Unabridged Novels of Sylvia Plath
  • Survivor: A Novel
  • The Great Shark Hunt
  • Grid Detective
  • The 50th Law
  • The Essential Underground Handbook
  • Simple Sabotage Field Manual
  • Improved Munitions Black Book
  • The Anarchist Cook Book
If I hadn't been so exhausted dealing with both Amazon and Amex, I probably would have contacted the FBI about the last four. God knows what the thief is planning.
But seriously! Talk about a mixed bag!!! There are undertones of a home-grown terrorist, who's possibly suicidal, but is questioning that, who also really wants a serious relationship.
So, amateur profilers....over to you.
