An Evil Mind

Chris Carter ( was born in Brasilia where he spent his childhood. After graduating from high school, he moved to the USA where he studied psychology with a specialization in criminal behaviour. His sixth crime novel in as many years, An Evil Mind, came out in 2014. The summary is as follows. A freak accident in rural Wyoming leads the Sheriff’s Department to arrest a man for a possible double homicide, but further investigations suggest a much more horrifying discovery – a serial killer who has been kidnapping, torturing and mutilating victims all over the United States for at least twenty-five years. The suspect claims he is a pawn in a huge labyrinth of lies and deception. Can he be believed? The case is handed over to the FBI, but this time even they are forced to ask for outside help. Ex-criminal behaviour psychologist and lead Detective with the Ultra Violent Crime Unit of the LAPD, Robert Hunter, is asked to run a series of interviews with the apprehended man. These interviews begin to reveal terrifying secrets that no one could have foreseen, including the real identity of a killer so elusive that no one, not even the FBI, had any idea he existed. Can you bear the tension?
