Dark Truths

by Dr. Christopher J. Kurtz with Robert D. Hunter

What drives a man to kill a person, and another, and then another, until he can no longer stop?

Pulitzer Prize nominee Dr. Christopher J. Kurtz and co-author Robert D. Hunter may have the answer to this question. Over several years, they have corresponded with a number of convicted killers who have told of their compulsion to commit serial homicide. Their unique insights into the lives of these deranged individuals have allowed them to explore in disturbing detail the homicidal manifestations of a number of mental afflictions, including fantasy addiction and narcissistic personality disorder. Their conclusions make for frightening reading, but Kurtz and Hunter argue that we must delve into this twisted world of the evil and irrational if we are ever to understand the serial killer and his motivations.
