The Suspect And Other Tales By K Morris: Book Review

On checking the reviews of my book, “The Suspect And Other Tales” I noticed that a new review was posted on 4 February, (http://www.amazon.com/review/RM3GJSO629L91/ref=cm_cr_rdp_perm?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B00PKPTQ0U).

Many of the stories in “The Suspect And Other Tales are in the crime genre and have an unexpected twist in the tale. Other stories concern ghostly happenings. In “Something Wicked” a young boy is subjected to a haunting in an ancient mansion. Are his terrifying experiences the product of an overactive imagination or does something truly wicked lurk in the dark shadows of his chamber?

The Suspect And Other Tales By K Morris: Book Review

I was pleased to receive the following review of my collection of short stories, “The Suspect And Other Tales”,

 

“These eleven very short stories showcase life’s ironies and pitfalls. The author introduces a variety of characters, from cops to scoundrels to ordinary

folks struggling with bad luck or observing their fellow human beings. Most of the stories end with a twist that makes us gasp or laugh (or both). On the

minus side, I noticed a few spelling errors and some spots where commas would have been helpful. But on the whole, these stories would be perfect quick

reads for commuters or readers looking for an interlude of fiction in a busy day”. For the review please visit (http://www.amazon.com/review/R1CNF9L0SDIYFC/ref=cm_cr_rdp_perm?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B00PKPTQ0U).

Many thanks to the reviewer for taking the time to read and review “The Suspect And Other Tales”.

Sociopaths

A fascinating post on how to identify a sociopath, (http://paularenee.wordpress.com/identifying-a-narcissistic-sociopath/). Sociopaths can be superficially charming and may appear to be wholly sincere. However they are, in reality totally self-obsessed with no (or very) little empathy for others. Sociopaths will lie, cheat and, in short do anything which enhances their own position with no concern for the wellbeing of others.

In my story, “Samantha”, Sam’s brutal pimp, Barry exhibits many of the traits which imbue the sociopath. Indeed Barry verges on the psychopathic end of sociopathy. His aim is the making of money. The wellbing of Sam and the other girls he forces into prostitution does not figure in Barry’s world view. They are, for him merely a means to the greater enrichment of Barry O’Connor.

Are sociopaths born or made? I don’t know the answer to that question. I am, however sceptical of reductionist approaches which ascribe simple causes to what are (often) highly complex problems. Consequently my admittedly unscientific view is that sociopaths and psychopaths are the products of many and varied factors including both environmental and, perhaps genetic factors.
