Publisher's Synopsis

Pre-order this edge-of-your-seat journey into the darkest depths of the human mind from forensic psychiatrist Dr Duncan Harding

- A likeable young girl who's burnt her family home to the ground

- A man with no memory of the night he killed his wife

- A teenager whose visions and voices have had murderous effect

One question binds these and others from the casebook of Britain's leading forensic psychiatrist: Why?

What drives a person to commit seemingly inexplicable crimes? Dr Duncan Harding is the person the police and the courts turn to for answers.

An expert witness, he must try to establish a defendant's mental state and motivation. And their fitness to stand trial.

Growing up in a broken, violent home, Harding became a doctor because he wanted to be good and kind. It led him on a journey that has brought him face to face with psychopaths, taken him to the limits of his compassion and to the darkest corners of his own troubled past.

But he's never turned away nor given up hope. Mesmerising, insightful and redemptive, The Criminal Mind is his unforgettable story.
