Psychopaths are superficially charming but ultimately self-centred individuals possessed with the ability to manipulate others into predatory situations. This psychiatric anomaly, when combined with a violent or abusive childhood,
mental illness or addictive personality can help to create that most feared and hated of human beings – the serial killer.
Evil Psychopaths is not a book for the faint hearted It explores the lives and crimes of the deranged and dangerous who have practised and perfected the art of killing.
