Dr. Eric Parrish thought his life had been turned every which way but up when his wife filed for divorce. He gives their home to his ex-wife and moves out so their daughter could have stability only to learn his ex-wife had sold it to move in with her boyfriend. His ex-wife forces their daughter, who suffers from anxiety, to play sports; something the daughter doesn’t want to do thus adding to her anxiety. To save his daughter Eric fights for full custody and goes through what he believes is the fight of his life until the “Sociopath” enters his life and terrorizes him.
I liked how Sociopath and Psychopath was defined, to paraphrase, Sociopaths knows exactly what they are doing and why they are doing it whereas psychopaths don’t.
In the first few chapters I found the good doctor utterly stupid but as the book progressed, I realized he grew up in an environment with little conflict thus not learning street sense or common sense when dealing with people who came from more difficult environments.
Author Scottoline did a phenomenal jobs in keeping readers guessing as to who the sociopath was and I must say I didn’t see it coming
George Newbern did a very good job in telling the story.
