Today I have the pleasure of sharing my review for The Dark Side of the Mind by Kerry Daynes as part of the blog tour. Many thanks to Anne of Random Things Tours for the invite and to the publishers for the copy of the book.
About the book
The Dark Side of the Mind is available to pre-order now andavailable to purchase 20/02/2020 –Amazon
When I first read the description for this book I was totally intrigued. I have absolutely no experience and only a basic understanding of what being a Forensic Psychologist entails so I couldn’t wait to get reading.
I have to say that this book isn’t quite what I was expecting, I thought the author would take more of a blunt approach to the subject but no, we get a very honest telling of what is involved and it’s shocking, sad, scary and quite an eye opener at times.
From her first work placement in a men’s prison and right throughout her career, Kerry Daynes has encountered many different people and I just found it so fascinating, some are really sick and make you’re skin crawl but i found I just couldn’t put this book down.
I enjoyed the honesty in this book and how her career and personal life intermingled and how frustrating and inadequate the prison and medical system can be when dealing with her clients.
Perfectly written The Dark Side of the Mind is an unputdownable read, it’s harrowing at times but the authors humour and compassion really shine through. Even if you don’t have an interest in Forensic Phycology this book will have you totally gripped from beginning to end. I can imagine that Kerry Daynes has many more stories to tell and I’d definitely be first in line to read more.
My names Dee-Cee, I’m a mum in my 30’s and I’m obsessed with reading. From an early age reading became a passion, but after a family tragedy back in 2014 my love of books has grown and it gives me an escape from grief and takes me into another world. I love Crime, Psychological thrillers, anything with a murder really. I leave reviews on my blog, Amazon UK, .com, Goodreads and Netgalley.
