Customer Review

on 8 April 2006
I bought this after reading Robert Ressler's book, and it gives a good insight into serial killers in South Africa, who tend not to be as hardened to the system as those in the US, and so give a lot more personal insight in interviews. There is a good balance between the author's life and the actual cases, although she tends to overuse the phrase "the abyss". Micki, like so many other female psychologists, tends towards over empathising with the killers and is a great believer serial killers are 'tortured souls' that deserve some sympathy (she is deeply religious), and at times alludes to the idea that the killer is in her head, and is somehow aware of her like, in some kind of psychic link. She is also a big supporter of Freud and his outdated theories, which gets a bit tiresome. However overall this is a good book for those who are interested in the psychological side of true crime.
