A psychiatrist and internationally renowned expert on violence, Dorothy Otnow Lewis has spent the last quarter of a century studying the minds of killers. Among the notorious murderers she has examined are Ted Bundy, Arthur Shawcross and Mark David Chapman, the man who shot John Lennon. Now she shares her groundbreaking discoveries - and the chilling encounters that led to them.
From juvenile courts to the psychiatric wards of a New York hospital, from maximum security prisons to the corridors of death row, Lewis searches to understand the origins of violence.
Controversial and compelling right up to its final interview with an executioner - a state-sanctioned killer - this book will forever change the way you think about crime and punishment.
