In the tradition of Ann Rule and the international best seller Women Who Kill comes the first book that chronicles the psychological profiles of spouses who kill, from Scott Peterson to Rabbi Fred Neulander, told by a renowned psychotherapist who specializes in spousal behavior and the criminal mind.
Every day six people are murdered in the U.S. by a spouse or intimate partner. The stories of killer spouses capture the attention of readers, who wonder how such normal and seemingly happy people can go over the edge. In every relationship there are “extreme moments” where scary feelings surface. But what happens when those feelings turn to action?
In ‘Till Death Do Us Part, noted psychotherapist Robi Ludwig, along with journalist Matt Birkbeck, answers these troubling questions by identifying ten killer personality types. In Ludwig’s practice she has found that within nearly every relationship there are extreme moments where scary and dangerous feelings surface. These are deep feelings and disturbing thoughts we all have, yet for the most part never act upon. But when that line crosses over into murder something has gone terribly wrong, and we all ask the same question, how could this have happened?
