After listening to this crash course in personality interpretation, listeners may find themselves suspicious of everyone who happens across their path on an ordinary day. Hare has spent years researching some of the greatest criminal psychopaths the world has ever known, and now he wants to show the general public how to spot them in a crowd. Paul Boehmer delivers a well-paced reading that allows the author’s work to speak for itself. His narration is unadorned and straightforward, without becoming dry or—pardon the pun—deadly serious. His reading does justice to the author’s years of hard work and makes for an engaging audiobook and a fascinating look at the dark side of life. A Guilford Press paperback. (Aug.)
