I'm not a forensic psychologist, but I am an LPC (Licensed Professional Counselor) who does a lot of court-ordered psychological testing for people in trouble with the law. So I saw quite a bit of myself in Jake Danser, both personally and professionally. That doesn't mean, of course, that I have murdered anyone, or kept souvenirs of the murders, or anything like that... :o)

  As the writer, I felt a lot my task in this particular book was trying to
  keep the reader interested in the narrator, even though he was vain,
  self-absorbed, a liar, and likely involved in several murders around him.
  I was interested in trying to create a character who,through his charm and
  intelligence, could keep the reader involved even though they didn't
  entirely trust him.

  And I was hoping the readers would see a bit of themselves in Jake Danser,
  and maybe reflect upon that similarity...
