Forensic psychiatrist Frank Clevenger returns in this arresting new thriller from bestselling author Keith Ablow. Having achieved celebrity status with his last case, Clevenger is tapped by the FBI to catch an elusive murderer known as the Highway Killer, who has left twelve bodies strewn across twelve states. But the Highway Killer isn't just a serial killer--he's a psychiatrist whose brilliance as a doctor is matched only by his precision as a murderer.

When he writes to a national newspaper challenging Clevenger to cure him through an exchange of open letters, a gripping public therapy unfolds. With the Highway Killer's brutality reaching new heights as he confronts his mind's darkest demons, will Clevenger exorcise those demons before they spin completely out of control?

Reviews

Praise for Psychopath

“You can see why in certain quarters, in hopeful whispers, Ablow is compared to Thomas Harris. It's in the crisp, clean prose; the sweeping cat-and-mouse games; and the cold analysis of the brilliant, broken minds that perpetrate murder and escape capture again and again...Psychopath is a superior read. And for thirsty crime fans, that should be more than enough.” —Entertainment Weekly

“Ablow, a forensic psychiatrist himself, explores the Highway Killer in the kind of detail few novelists even attempt.” —Booklist

“One of the genre's most intriguing protagonist....[Ablow] explores the Highway Killer in the kind of detail few novelists even attempt.” —Booklist

“Only Thomas Harris does it more stylishly” —Kirkus Review

“Keith Ablow's setting is the darkest of all--the twists and turns of the human mind.” —Harlan Coben, author of Gone for Good
