    Forensic Psychiatrist Frank Clevenger confronts the ultimate opponent - a serial killer who is also a brilliant psychiatrist, with an uncanny ability to burrow into the deepest recesses of the human mind.

    Venice says: "This book is ACE!"
    "Author-reader a bit flat"
    Overall

    Sometimes an author provides just the right voice for his novel. That wasn't true for Psychopath. I really missed the spirit that some of the fine actors give to an authors' words. This author's flat voice made the listen a bit tedious.
    The story itself kept my attention enough to finish the book, but in places I just found myself saying, "Oh no, here comes Hollywood again" because it read a tad like it was intended to be made into a mediocre movie. No "Silence of the Lambs" here - this is more the stuff of an intriguing trailer that turns out to be a disappointing film. Predictable in some places, very Hollywood in others. (Every pretty woman to which we are introduced in the story eventually becomes attracted to our main character. And outside of Hollywood, would anyone put themselves in the hazardous situations that some of the characters in this story do?)
    Some of the situations are resolved in a slightly atypical way, and some of the psychological insights are intriguing, but all in all I felt I'd heard this story many times in forgettable movies. However, it did keep my attention, so I gave it three stars.
