Sociopath?

Adult
Rated 4.82/5 based on 12 reviews
From the time he was a toddler, people said Rafe Vincennes reminded them of a black cat. Rafe's moral code is similar to a cat's as well in that he doesn't have one. In addition to adventuresome sex, Rafe has a penchant for visiting extreme retribution on those who wrong him. A champion race car driver, Rafe drives as daringly as he lives.

About Vicki Williams

I turned to novel-writing after writing non-fiction for many years, primarily as a columnist. I wrote a syndicated column (political and social commentary) for King Features Syndicate for 10 years. My work has appeared in Newsweek, McCalls, Sports Illustrated, USA Today and many others. A Newsweek essay won an Indiana Presswomen's award for Social Commentary, then won at the national level. Three of my columns have appeared in textbooks.

I currently write a weekly column for the Logansport (IN) Pharos-Tribune. I also write three blogs - one on writing, one on NASCAR and one on politics.

During my work years, I was a bartender, a factory worker, a secretary, an insurance underwriter, a real estate salesperson and a plan administrator. I finally retired and am now living my dream as a full-time writer.

I live in rural Indiana with my blond Pekinese, Channie, and my two cats, Paisley and Slate.

Rafe isn't a Sociopath (my opinion :D). Just an individual that no one else can understand. Also the other books based off the "Rafe" universe are pretty good with a little repetition between books. Best parts I think are when he surpasses other people's expectations.

I admit I was a little uncomfortable with the first chapter but I continued on and I even understood the relationship. This makes me even more uncomfortable but in reality I could totally understand Rafe. His accomplishments are a little much but I love his overall attitude of self-reliance and self-satisfaction. Very well done.

I have to say parts of this book are very disturbing and not fot the weak at heart. However, having said that I could not put this book down. This book is written so well you feel like you really can get inside Rafe's head and understand his way of thinking. As much as you want to hate him for the way he is you can't quite get there. After having read this book I had to get the others of this series so I could see what rafe was going to do next. I hope she keeps writing about him!

Dear Ms. Williams:
Your story was one of the best written, more compelling tales I have read in decades. Despite a difficult premise, (or may be because of it), the entire story held together from start to finish. THANK YOU. Please keep trying your hand at writing fiction. I will try to take a look at your other works as well. Please accept these very sincere 5 stars from a long-time prolific reader. Thanks to Smashwords for giving me the opportunity to "stumble" across Ms. Williams story.

I had a hard to time with some of the content but I couldn't put it down as I needed to know. Is Rafe a Sociopath? You have to draw your own conclusions. As much as I might want to hate him or even be a tad envious, I found myself falling in love with his deep dark eyes, white smile, and un-nevering maybe unsettling way he drew me in. Overall, very entertaining which then drew me to read the next book by Ms. Williams - To love or to be Loved. Rafe's story is one that I just need to either figure out or maybe find a way to "save" him.

Deeply Disturbing Look Into Sociopathic Behavior,

No-one will be ambivalent about this book. Many will start the first chapter, find the first disturbing scene, and stop reading. Then they may fuss and rant about "how could any author write that?" Don't stop reading. Keep reading. Keep reading to get inside the head of one of the cruelest, most sociopathic characters you will ever encounter. Keep reading to feel what he feels, when he feels it, and why he feels it. This book is written by someone who has "been there and done that." Her background in law enforcement has given her the insights into these types of sociopathic individuals. Her background in non-fiction brings a crisp, efficient style to the book. There are some scenes in the book (e.g., the bar fight scene, Rafe's first fast drive in his new car) where you are transported into the scene and into the psyche of Rafe Vincennes. I couldn't put this book down, even though morals or society or someone in the back of my head was telling me that the subject matter was verboten. Warning there is graphic sexual content in this book and this book is certainly not for anyone under the age of 21, or for anyone who is easily offended. However, if you can see the abundant and graphic sex for what it is, the author's vehicle for demonstrating Rafe's inability to connect on a spiritual or psychological level, then you may just be able to hitch on for a fast paced bumpy ride. I am anxiously awaiting the second book in this series.
