Duncan Harding

The Criminal Mind

The Criminal Mind


A likeable young girl burns her family home to the ground

A man has no memory of the night he killed his wife

A teenager’s visions have murderous effect

One question binds the cases of Dr Duncan Harding, Britain’s top forensic psychiatrist: Why?

Growing up in a violent home, Harding became a doctor to be good and kind. His journey brought him to psychopaths, to the limits of his compassion and to the darkest corners of his own troubled past.

But he’s never turned away nor given up hope. Mesmerising, insightful and redemptive, The Criminal Mind is his unforgettable story.
