Psychopath Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Psychopath

This book is interesting because both the protagonist and antagonist are forensic psychiatrists. Jonah Wrens (the killer) wanders from town to town murdering innocent victims. Frank Clevenger is the protagonist engaging in Wrens' game of cat and mouse. It is interesting to see how the characters analyze one other. Something else that adds interest is that the author is actually a forensic psychiatrist himself.
