Would you recognise a child molester standing in a supermarket queue? And if you did, would you understand what went on in his - or her - mind?
Nigel Latta is a forensic psychologist. He spends his working life with the sort of people most of us would prefer to pretend didn't exist. In this new edition of his ground-breaking book, which is the inspiration for the tVNZ series Beyond the Darklands, Nigel takes us inside the minds of some of the most chilling characters to walk our streets. As writer and presenter of Beyond the Darklands, Nigel has updated his book to include new material on significant recent cases since it was last released in 2005. Now a respected media commentator and recognised expert in sexual abuse, sexual crimes and for his work with severely disturbed children and young people, Nigel is a regular columnist with Littlies Magazine and has a parenting slot on National Radio. the television series Beyond the Darklands will be screening post July 2007 and will be marketed and publicised by tVNZ as a major local documentary series, further increasing Nigel's profile.
