How To Spot A Psychopath by M Q Webb @marswebb1 @randomttours #blogtour #bookreview #HowToSpotAPsychopath #DrOscarDeLaNuit

Happy Tuesday everyone! I’m delighted to be hosting the blog tour for M Q Webb’s How To Spot A Psychopath.

Massive thank you Anne Cater of Random Things Tours for inviting me on the tour and for my e-copy of How To Spot A Psychopath.

The Blurb

When four-year-old Mia Edwards goes missing on a play date, everyone suspects that Jessica Green knows what happened to her, especially Mia’s mother, Holly, but Jessica isn’t talking, and time is running out to find Mia alive.

What isn’t Jess saying?

Forensic Psychiatrist Dr. Oscar de la Nuit knows he can help Jessica, but first he must face his tragic past and confront his own demons to uncover a truth no one expected.

What Did I Think?

Psychopath – a person suffering from a serious mental illness that causes them to behave in a violent way toward other people” (Oxford English Dictionary)

Is Jess a psychopath? Well a young girl did disappear without a trace whilst in Jess’s care and Jess is taking medication for a mental illness…

Despite the lack of evidence, Jess has been incarcerated. Kept from those she loves. Unable to defend the narrative that’s surrounding the fateful day when Mia disappeared from Jess’s back garden. But Oscar de la Nuit wants to help. Can he find out what happened to Mia?!

Webb drip feeds parts of the start of Jess’s and Holly’s friendship in between chapters of her therapy with Oscar. This did make me question both of these mothers and their motives. The change in her relationship dynamic with the arrival of Holly into the group is not what Jess needs when she’s struggling.

I really liked Oscar; being a psychiatrist at the centre of the story, effectively trying to solve the case made for a different sort of read. His own personal conflicts add that bit of humanity to him that is sometimes lacking with fictional psychiatrists. I’m hoping this is the start of a series I can follow from the start!

I found How To Spot A Psychopath a very addictive read. I devoured the book in a few hours. I really didn’t want to let go of my kindle. Cracking crime thriller to kick off the series!

PS – I love this cover – it’s so simple and yet so striking!
