Summary

In 2006, Mary Turner Thomson’s world shattered when she discovered her husband Will was a bigamist, con man and convicted sex offender. Unbeknownst to her, this would be the start of a bold new chapter in her life, fighting to protect other women from his heartless gaslighting campaigns - and putting a stop to his endless deception.

Mary thought her story would end with the revelation that Will in fact had several families - and numerous children. But when she discovered that he had continued to prey on new victims, she vowed to turn his betrayal into a force for good. On her mission to protect these women and others, Mary also learned more about the psychopathy behind Will’s duplicitous behaviour.

Teaming up with his newest fiancée in the US, Mary attempts to put an end to Will’s devastating activities. But will she and her fellow victims succeed in their ultimate goal: to bring down Will Jordan forever?

Mary Turner Thomson began telling her story in her first book, The Bigamist. Now, in The Psychopath, she delves deeper into Will's betrayal, telling an entirely new story of how she moved on, and helped others do the same.

Do not waste your time

This is a book about the fact that the author wrote a book. It’s repetitive, badly written and boring. I thought I would be able to learn something from this book, instead I’m annoyed I wasted a credit on this rubbish.

What an amazing courageous woman!

You should be so proud Mary Turner Thomson. You have achieved so much and your book is full of inspiring examples of how you worked all this out for the good of all women who find themselves in this situation.

And what a fine role model you are for your children and all who have helped themselves heal because of you sharing your story and being the listener they needed.

Thank you.

A stronger woman

This is really the second part to 'The Bigamist' that confirms that the experience Mary had was not because she was a victim, but just one woman amongst many abused over a huge period of time by one man. As you listen you will be shocked at how prolific Will is,and how he is able to move from person to person over decades without conscience .But really this story is Mary's story now. He has underestimated the strength of the women he used, like Mary, who support and protect each other and also inevitably, as shown,future victims.It is a more complex book than I expected. I really enjoyed it more because I think you can hear the difference in tone from her first book, with Mary now .It's uplifting that a woman and her family ,after everything she has gone through, has come out of the other side of this in all her glory.This is a well balanced story and her research is balanced and informative,I actually feel like I've learnt something today thankyou 🙂

Really interesting listen

I have never thankfully been close to this kind of scenario. I am so glad I never met this kind of man because I think I would defiantly have been tricked. Great to hear so many women have stood fought and won against such unfairness and cruelty. Great book, good performance well worth listening.

A Book I Couldn't Put Down...

I first came across "The Bigamist "by accident last week and was compelled to quickly catch up with "The Psychopath". Your story is shocking but you can see how strong you have become and it's great to see your strength coming through when reading your new book. Well done and looking forward to reading more of your work.

It’s all about me

Having heard an interview on radio 5, I thought this would be an interesting listen. After a short while I was getting increasingly irritated by the author. Whilst of course she has been a victim of a very unpleasant man, I found her constant bragging unpalatable. I’m a black belt, I am a great mother, I’m a global author etc etc. I stuck with it but ended up disliking her as much as Will Jordan. Really don’t think someone with a music degree is qualified to be diagnosing a psychopath.

Loved both of your books.

Thank you for telling your story. I have loved listening to both of them. I realise that sounds a bit morbid but it is fascinating, scary and also inspirational.

Beware of Love Bombing

The Author is an intelligent, sensitive and thoughtful Narrator. Her story is quite intriguing. There are Psychopaths like Will Jordan who walk amongst us who have no conscience and take no responsibility of the dreadful suffering they cause others. They simply take from women and men and move on when the logistics no longer work for them, leaving a trail of financial and emotional destruction behind them. This man has fathered 13 children or more with different women.

The Author fought back to not only reclaim her life but go on to to live a wonderful life. She goes beyond her call of duty to support women who have also fallen pray to the Will Jordan she once married and had two children with. Will Jordan is so damaged and dangerous that he will never stop hurting other people while he is free to do so. This book has stayed with me.

Brilliant

It's wonderful to hear a story of a person overcoming abuse and using her story to explore the inner workings of a psychopathic mind.
The book is well written, the story is engaging and highly informative.

Personally, I don't think I was ever affected by a highly psychopathic person but I believe that educating oneself on the subject is crucial.

I believe that anyone who is currently out on the dating scene should read this book.

Big thank you to the author for writing this book.
I especially enjoyed the appendix. Thank you so much highlighting the issue and giving us the tools we can arm ourselves with 🙏

Did we need a follow up?

I cannot help but wonder why this follow-up was written. "The Bigamist" was entertaining but this is repetitive, lacks insight (Mary is retelling the experiences of others for huge chunks) and it takes on a clinical diagnosis feel that really became dull. The writing just does not have the spark the first book did. Mary Turner Thomson is quite a good narrator. However, I did not need separate narrators for Will and Michelle's dialog. It was not necessary and distracted a bit from the story. (imho)
