Editorial Reviews

This is a well written and truly riveting story presented in such a way that you felt you were intimately connected with everyone involved. I could not put this book down as Derhally tackled the most upsetting question of “Why?” in a factual account of what happened in the Chris Watts case.  She combined it with an enlightening exploration of the differences between narcissism, sociopaths and psychopaths in such a way, it left you with concrete information to base your own opinion on what drives people to do what they do.  The red flags are a must read in order to assist each of us in recognizing dysfunctional patterns of behaviors and how to protect ourselves from being a victim.

Susan Krebs, author of ES Thinking: Extraordinary Living Through Ego Spirit Thinking

“This is a True Crime book that’s extremely well written.”

MY DADDY IS A HERO is a well researched and compelling book.  I think readers who are intrigued by true crime stories will find the first portion especially captivating due to the extensive details of the story.  The analysis will appeal more to those who seek motivation and reasoning behind a seemingly baffling crime.  The book held my attention and interest all the way through, and I recommend it to those readers who were transfixed, as I was, by this horrific crime.
