She stood just ten feet away as a frail older lady was murdered.
True, she didn’t know it was happening at the time. True, she was duped by a master con man. None of that matters. Knowingly or not, she was complicit. And she’s not going to let it happen again.
Now, ten months and five thousand miles away, in the earthquake-ravaged, oil-rich Anchorage of the 1970s , 27-year-old reporter Tana Chenoweth focuses on hard news by day and studies psychopathy by night.
But murder stalks her again. Spurred by conscience, informed by her studies, and armed with her reporter’s skills, Tana tracks down the killer – and she does it using the psychopath’s own tricks, techniques gleaned from The Psychopath Companion.
The Psychopath Companion is the first in a series set in Anchorage in the 1970s and featuring amateur sleuth/reporter, Tana Chenoweth. Next in the series is The Nightmare Companion, in which Tana infiltrates a dream analysis group to catch a killer.
