‘a fascinating and moving account of life working with people who too often society wants to forget’
Dr Amanda Brown, author of THE PRISON DOCTOR

‘excellent and enlightening’
Jonathan Levi and Emma French, authors of INSIDE BROADMOOR

thought provoking’
Gwen Adshead, author of THE DEVIL YOU KNOW

Shocking, eye-opening and grimly fascinating, these are the true stories, patients and cases that have characterised a career spent treating mentally disordered offenders.

As a forensic psychiatrist, it’s Dr Das’s job to treat and rehabilitate what the tabloids might call the ‘criminally insane’, many of whom assault, rob, rape, and even kill. His work takes him to high-security prisons and securely locked hospital wards across the country, as well as inside courtrooms, giving evidence as an expert witness.

From the young woman who smothered her two-year-old nephew in a flash of psychosis, to the teenager who set his house on fire with his mother locked inside, Dr Das must delve into the minds of these violent offenders to elicit their symptoms of mental illness, understand their actions and prevent future atrocities.

In this honest, revealing and at times humorous memoir, Dr Das shares stories from his fifteen years as a psychiatric doctor working with this dangerous clientele, detailing some of his most extreme, heart-breaking and bizarre cases – and how he’s learned to live with his mistakes when the worse happens.

Compelling, enlightening and candid, if you enjoyed Unnatural Causes, Dark Side of the Mind or The Prison Doctor, you’ll love IN TWO MINDS.

Reviews

'You will want to spend time with Dr Sohom Das - he's witty, insightful, humble and humane and above all he just makes you glad that there are still psychiatrists out there who work with and care about those unfortunate people who, if we are honest with ourselves, we would all prefer to ignore, or simply lock up'
David Wilson, author of MY LIFE WITH MURDERERS
In a binary world where it is tempting to think of people as either victims or perpetrators Dr Das eloquently explains how they can be both. In this excellent and enlightening book we enter the minds of people who have been classified as both mad and bad. We learn what it has been like to walk in Dr Das's shoes as he treats these mentally disordered violent offenders
Jonathan Levi and Emma French, authors of INSIDE BROADMOOR
'This is a thought provoking book which brings alive the work of psychiatrists in the criminal justice system. Dr Das writes with verve about a complex and difficult subject, and true crime readers are in for a treat. Very entertaining!'
Gwen Adshead, author of THE DEVIL YOU KNOW
In Two Minds is a fascinating and moving account of life working with people who too often society wants to forget. Dr Das writes with warmth about his experiences as a psychiatrist and provides important insight into an world that usually remains hidden
