This book made me cry, laugh, think pick my chin up off the floor usually all within the same chapter The author is refreshingly, brutally honest, not only about her professional cases, opinions career, but also her personal life all aspects covered are equally gripping The writing style is accessible, with appropriate humour alongside the heart wrenching true life stories, a fascinating insight from the author on the psychology industry the criminal legal systems affecting both criminals the work of the forensic psychologists who assess them I really can t praise this book highly enough This book is enthralling from start to finish It s an absolute must read for anyone considering going into the forensic side of psychology Some of the tales that Kerry recounts are harrowing and made me ask questions of the the society we live in This book has definitely highlighted ways in which the justice system and support for offenders can and should be better I really enjoyed reading this. It s not often I can call a non fiction book unputdownable, but I loved this so much it was really hard not to race through it in one sitting late into the night Instead I rationed myself so that I could eke out the pleasure I d normally only do this with a great fiction novel I was enjoying.Kerry Daynes has approached her subject with exactly the right tone The book is full of fascinating anecdotes from her career in forensic psychology, all of which reflect different aspects of the human psyche and her work in the criminal justice system There s a liberal sprinkling of background statistics and both procedural and legal information, all of which add weight and interest The story of her career is intermingled with struggles in her personal life where she has herself come face to face with the darker side of the human mind, plus her efforts to come to terms with the thoughts and behaviour of the clients she is exposed to and the inadequacies of the UK prison and medical system to properly deal with those clients Throughout, her warm Northern wit, intelligence, professionalism and care is evident.A fabulous read I thoroughly recommend it to anyone who is at all interested by the workings of our human mind. I wasn t surprised that this was a engrossing reflection on 2 dedicated decades as a forensic pathologist What surprised me though, was how skilfully the author interwove her personal feelings with regard to her expertise Forensics can be an arid craft but people, especially the damaged, are generally anything but Any sentient professional cannot review such disturbing experiences without emotional cost but I am glad that the author is willing to share such candour as the reader is much better for it I salute you, Kerry Daynes As well as being an expert forensic psychologist you are a damn good writer.
