it was amazing

One of my favorite books of all time.
I read it cover to cover within 24 hours as I couldnt put it down.
Id recomend that anyone with a strong interest in crime or psychology to read it and also to anyone else. The coverage of so many prolific crimes that we've seen occur within our country over the last few decades makes it easy to relate to; anyone and everyone (unless youve been living in a cave somewhere!) will have an opinion or memory of the majority of the crimes discussed (Rachel Nickel, Jamie Bulger, The Wests etc) What makes this such an intriguing read for me is to hear about the beginnings of Forensic Psychology, how its applied to these dreadful situations in order to bring those guilty to justice and to see its development through to present day. It also highlites the personal dilemas that Paul Britton experienced alongside his prolific career and how his involvment has shaped this interesting career choice and the use of techniques today.
This ones a keeper - Ill be reading it again, Im sure of that.
