Is Hannibal Lecter actually the prototype of a psychopath? Do all psychopaths have the need to kill other people? How does psychological personlity determine whether a person is psychopathic? How does a psychopathic personality emerge? How do some psychopathic serial killers manage to live a decent life for decades as loving family fathers and friendly neighbors? Why not all psychopaths become criminal? How much of "evil" is there in "normal" people?

Lydia Benecke sheds light on the emotional and thought worlds of psychopathic people - both those who have made headlines with frightening crimes, as well as those who come through life without crimes and are among us.

An exciting journey into the world of criminal psychology.
