Disappointing

The subject matter is very enticing- who doesn't want to gain an insight into the psychology of the criminal mind? It's endlessly fascinating in most contexts.
However, this book consists of mainly dull anecdotes about criminals the author met, combined with general knowledge about other serious criminals that we already know. Not deep, not even very interesting.
However the WORST thing about this book is the fact that the author read it himself! He has atrocious intonation, like he is reading a shopping list. He pauses in the middle .....of a clause. Then goes up?...for no reason. And it's his own words...

Get a New Narrator

Could probably be quite interesting but couldn't get past the first chapter as the author's voice puts me to sleep. Flat, dead, zero emotion... weirdly intonates some sentence as though they are questions, even though they're not... would listen to it with a different reader.

Certainly doesn't mince his words

This is the second of Tim's books I've read and it was just as enjoyable as Dancing with demons. Well narrated, articulate (as always), interesting and engaging content (although I had to skip the chapter about the toilet fetish!).

They walk amongst us.
