By the latter stage of the story what was your impression of Seagraves, and particularly his need to have momentos of those he killed?

Mar 25, 9:10pm Top

I said it before - the more we got to know him, the less I liked him (really the more I despised him). He was arrogant, greedy and I was glad that he was dealt with. I just wish he'd had to stand trial after the authorities connected him to all of the "mementos"

I am an obsessive devotee of Criminal Minds and all Ann Rule books. Only a psychopath likes to collect mementos.

>3 Olivermagnus: Me too! I own all the Criminal Minds series DVD's...and Ann Rule..rules. He was a psychopath with a capital "P". He got just punishment. If he had gone to trial he may have walked out under a mental deficiency defense...just can't trust those lawyers...or have gotten a Club Med vacation in a cushy Federal prison. Killing was exactly what he deserved.

I would say that Seagraves was a psychopath too.

A very cold and focused individual. The term 'psychopath' fits him like a glove. His collecting was a real obsession for him.

His job made it so easy for him to be a psychopath. Had he not make the one comment about saving a memento from those his killed as a way to respect them, I would have thought he was a sociopath. What a creep I'm glad Stone shot him.

That's how I like my villains. Villainous not simply the misunderstood but good guy deep underneath. I love to hate my villains and wish them unspeakable horrors. Fun times in reading.
