Summary, etc.:
"As a national expert and speaker on mass shootings and gun violence, Dr. Lynn Fenton knew it was impossible to "spot a killer." But when she embarked on treating troubled grad student James Holmes, the hair on her arms stood up. She knew she was dealing with evil. Yet she could find no legal means of locking him up. A decade ago, on July 20, 2012, Holmes struck: he entered a packed movie theater and opened fire, killing twelve people and wounding seventy; some were left brain damaged, several were paralyzed for life. Dr. Fenton's inability to thwart Holmes's mass murder made her a scapegoat and put her own life in danger. Her chilling account provides an intimate look at her life before, during, and after the Aurora massacre, as well as alarming insight into the sinister patient who described himself as "fear incarnate.""-- Provided by publisher.
