Publisher's Summary

In 2006, Mary Turner Thomson’s world shattered when she discovered her husband Will was a bigamist, con man and convicted sex offender. Unbeknownst to her, this would be the start of a bold new chapter in her life, fighting to protect other women from his heartless gaslighting campaigns - and putting a stop to his endless deception.

Mary thought her story would end with the revelation that Will in fact had several families - and numerous children. But when she discovered that he had continued to prey on new victims, she vowed to turn his betrayal into a force for good. On her mission to protect these women and others, Mary also learned more about the psychopathy behind Will’s duplicitous behaviour.

Teaming up with his newest fiancée in the US, Mary attempts to put an end to Will’s devastating activities. But will she and her fellow victims succeed in their ultimate goal: to bring down Will Jordan forever?

Mary Turner Thomson began telling her story in her first book, The Bigamist. Now, in The Psychopath, she delves deeper into Will's betrayal, telling an entirely new story of how she moved on, and helped others do the same.

Fantastic Insights

This psychopathy book is a delightful combination of genres, both self-help and memoir/autobiography. I happen to enjoy both the genres, so I found this book an enjoyable and a powerful listen. The author's insights are helping me see through the façade of manipulative people; there treachery and deceit, and there narcissistic cores. I find myself finally able to avoid there devastating aftermath, and am able to to improve my life situation as a result. The personal accounts of a fellow survivor of a cluster b personality disorder is striking. People need to read up on these topics because there's millions of people out there who lack empathy, compassion and remorse. Spoiler alert: its not just the Ted Bundy's that are psychopaths, they are seemingly normal people, and we cross paths with them daily. We need to learn how to protect ourselves. We are not fast food for psychopaths.

What a creep

I read Mary’s first book and thought I learned how a man could pull off having more than one family, complete with kids... but that just scratched the surface. By speaking out and sharing her story, Mary not only helped others in the same situation, but unearthed more with same guy. This serial bigamist kept seducing and impregnating women, forced only to pause when he’d be locked up... then he’d begin again.

Lost for words, amazing book.

Pretty sure the chapter opposites attract explains my life. Glad I'm not the only one to experience that.

Amazing and enlightening

I loved how the author told the story and although it is non-fiction it grabbed my attention and held it like reading a suspenseful novel. Entertaining and educational. A must read for any single person interested in doing online dating.

Full of great information

I enjoyed the reality in this book and it helped me recognize some ex brother-in-laws. It was enjoyable for the most part…up until the author began trashing our president.

Very interesting until it became political

I found that this was very interesting, and then it became political and it turned me completely off.

Brilliant

It's wonderful to hear a story of a person overcoming abuse and using her story to explore the inner workings of a psychopathic mind.
The book is well written, the story is engaging and highly informative.

Personally, I don't think I was ever affected by a highly psychopathic person but I believe that educating oneself on the subject is crucial.

I believe that anyone who is currently out on the dating scene should read this book.

Big thank you to the author for writing this book.
I especially enjoyed the appendix. Thank you so much highlighting the issue and giving us the tools we can arm ourselves with 🙏

Did we need a follow up?

I cannot help but wonder why this follow-up was written. "The Bigamist" was entertaining but this is repetitive, lacks insight (Mary is retelling the experiences of others for huge chunks) and it takes on a clinical diagnosis feel that really became dull. The writing just does not have the spark the first book did. Mary Turner Thomson is quite a good narrator. However, I did not need separate narrators for Will and Michelle's dialog. It was not necessary and distracted a bit from the story. (imho)
