Making a Psychopath: My Journey into 7 Dangerous Minds

by Dr Mark Freestone

Danny ‘the Borderline’ switches from grandiosity to rage to despair within minutes and killed his defenceless friend without explanation. Tony ‘the Conman’ prefers charm, intimidation and sexual abuse over physical violence and once tried to dupe someone into buying the Eiffel Tower. Jason ‘the Liar’ had a fantasy life that led to vicious murders around Europe and preys on those who see the good in people. Case by fascinating case, get to know seven of the most dangerous minds that Dr Freestone has encountered over the last 15 years; these are up close accounts of some of Britain’s most psychopathic criminals, and what can happen if you fall victim to their supreme powers of manipulation.
