Top critical review
Ok, but not as solid or convincing as the author might like to believe
on July 24, 2016
An ok read though I often found myself not entirely on board with his analysis. He says things like 'I've interviewed thousands of people, I think I know when someone is lying' and this hurts his credibility. He also does not site his sources. For example, he says there were 20 keys to the Ramsey house floating around and not in their possession- how does he know that? How can we trust that as fact? He tends to remind the reader that he's an 'expert' and that even other 'experts' aren't as good as him. He implies that others should trust his analysis when often it was just his interpretation of what he perceives to be normal behaviour rather than something tangible. It's all very flaky. He says things like 'people don't just change, they don't just start killing, there's always lead up,' but we have cases that belie this idea such as Susan Smith, Darly Routier... All things considered, I only take his opinion as just that, an opinion to be weighed against others.
