Synopses & Reviews
"Pseudonymous author M.E. Thomas paints for the casual observer an illustration of the world of the sociopath. Bereft of the inborn empathic abilities that most people possess, Thomas used her considerable aptitudes to create a functional, albeit predatory, life for herself a life anchored in rules arrived at through applied reason rather than in morals. Narrator Bernadette Sullivan's coolly amused tone effectively conveys Thomas's charming, detached observations about her life. Calm and self-possessed, Sullivan leads us through Thomas's narrative as the sociopath speculates about the causes of sociopathy, its implications, and the impact it has had on her life. By turns a confession, an examination, and a self-justification, the veracity of Thomas's narrative is open to question she is a self-confessed liar and manipulator but however fictional or distorted the story may be, Sullivan's presentation of it is undeniably seductive.
