Explore how Dr. Drukteinis, as a forensic psychiatrist, investigates criminal behavior with psychological case examples inspired by real life events. Avoiding overly complex legal and medical jargon, the book takes you through the process of analyzing opinions and testimony of experts using both a story model and scientific evidence. It challenges the narratives claimed in criminal cases, and also our own narratives.
