Shocking. Eye-opening. Grimly fascinating. These true stories from a Forensic Psychiatrist working in prisons, secure hospitals and criminal courts are perfect for true crime fans and readers of The Prison Doctor and The Dark Side of the Mind.

As a forensic psychiatrist, it's Dr Das's job to treat and rehabilitate what the tabloids might call the 'criminally insane', many of whom assault, rob, rape, and even kill.

From the young woman who smothered her two-year-old nephew in a flash of psychosis, to the teenager who set his house on fire with his mother locked inside, Dr Das must delve into the minds of these violent offenders to understand their actions and prevent future atrocities.

In these honest and unflinching stories, Dr Das details some of the most extreme, heart-breaking and bizarre cases of his career.
