Psychopaths: Up Close and Personal

By Christopher Berry-Dee

Peek Inside the Minds of the Most Disturbing Murderers


What makes a cold, heartless murderer tick?

Using the killers’ own words, he reveals their twisted psyches. After spending years researching, interviewing and corresponding with imprisoned criminals, he paints a picture of how narcissism, jealousy, and sociopathy can make people commit horrifying and violent acts without remorse.

  • Oscar Pistorius, Olympic Murderer
  • Kenneth Alessio Bianchi, the Hillside Strangler
