Praise for Psychopath
"Fascinating clinical insights."
-The New York Times

"Keith Ablow is king of the psychological thriller. Frank Clevenger is a wonderfully flawed hero, as haunted by his own demons as the sociopaths he faces. Ablow writes like a man possessed - with a pace so blistering the pages will all but singe your hands."
-Dennis Lehane, author of Mystic River

"A tour de force. Ablow is not satisfied with the superficial. He digs deep to create complex characters."
-Orlando Sentinel

"A superior read."
-Entertainment Weekly
