"Vuelva a intentarlo"
A husband. A father. A killer.
Chris Watts was a family man. Everybody, including his family, believed that. Yet, on August 13, 2018, he murdered Shanann, his pregnant wife, and two young daughters.
As terrible as his story is, it is also a warning because to this day, living behind bars, Watts is still acting out the character traits that made him kill in the first place.
In this, the first and only psychological exploration of the Watts family murders, psychotherapist Lena Derhally has pieced together the crime, the events leading to it, and most of all, her beliefs about the "why". She explores the childhoods, families of origin, meeting, and early relationship of Shanann and Chris Watts. She also examines Watts's double life and duplicity regarding his well-publicized affair with a coworker.
The audiobook includes an in-depth look at community psychopaths, the different subtypes of narcissism, how to prevent this type of violence, and interviews with a neuroscientist, a criminal psychologist, and a journalist. Using her knowledge of attachment theory, Imago relationship theory, and psychopathology, Derhally draws a profile of the real Chris Watts and - just as important - she warns listeners that he is still a danger today.

Like so many, I could not understand how such a handsome, devoted, loving father and husband could suddenly switch like this. There are so many different theories out there waiting to be explored by armchair detectives online and people on YouTube but it still didn’t make sense to me.
Until this book.
Of course the author makes it known that she is not able to provide a definitive answer. She has not met Chris and so far he’s not underwent any psychological evaluations or examinations so all she had to go on was his actions, behaviour, the decisions he made before and after the murders as well as her significant expertise in psychology, relationships, human behaviour and her own experiences as well as interviewing so many experts in varying fields. This was another part of the book I found fascinating.
I personally believe the theories she discusses in this book are correct. I couldn’t put the book down and kept limiting myself to reading two chapters at a time so I didn’t race through the book too quickly. I wanted to savour every page and that’s when you know you’ve found a good author.
I have now found closure from this case because of this book. I no longer feel that I need to speculate, ruminate or dissect what may have happened to Chris to cause him to commit such heinous crimes anymore because . I found the answers in this here. Everything the author said made reasonable sense to me. Chris didn’t just change overnight. He didn’t simply snap. He didn’t have a psychotic episode or experience demonic possession.
He was always who he was. He was born the same person he became but his outward behaviour was extremely covert and difficult for anyone to spot. His “nice guy” persona and his easy going, laid back, quietly introverted gentleman was what everyone in his life perceived him to be, failing to understand or recognise the self-serving, self-gratification that was really going on beneath the surface from him behaving in such a way.
Please read the book to understand fully and then you can make your own judgements. All I can say is this book helped me find my own conclusion. I can’t say I’ll never read or watch anything again regarding this case, it’s far too compelling to simply forget all about it and I truly believe that so much can be learnt from this horrific tragedy which the author explores as well.
However, I found my answers and for that I want to thank the author. I’ll always cherish this book and it was a beautiful and respectful honour in memory of Shanann, Bella, CeCe and Nico.
I hope the Rzucek’s find the strength to read this one day. Of course it will not erase their pain but it might be able to provide them with certain answers they might need and more insight into the man they trusted to take care of their daughter.
A man who was in fact a complete stranger to them.
Superb piece of writing. Please buy it.
It was shocking to read that those close to them would've had Shannan down as being unfaithful before the thought of Chris playing away.....I was highly irritated to read it was Tammy Lee, the polygraph expert, that first suggested to Chris that Shannan might've killed the babies so he killed her, because he went right from an interview with HER into the meeting with his father that was recorded, where he fed him just that load of old guff !! I was shocked to learn the actual truth of the murders. I'd always had it in my head he killed Shannan and then the girls at home.....the truth was far, far worse.
Turns out Nikki, Chris' affair was a liar, too. She was caught out by her internet searches......they never learn, do they ? She made me smile when she stated how much she and he had in common cos' after looking up her photo, the biggest thing in common I could see was how much like Shannan she looked !! Nitwit.
I was fascinated to hear what the police said to Chris regarding his Alexa device being trained to pick up distress !! I Googled this and it seems another chap online was intrigued at the same sentence he overheard in the actual recording and he did some in-depth investigation too ! I didn't understand how Chris was charged with 5 counts of first-degree murder and it wasn't explained, either.
Some of the psychobabble in this goes on a bit too much and I just didn't see most of it pertaining that much to Chris myself.....he did make one remark nobody ever much picked up on.....about hanging pictures. Now THAT I found fascinating myself ! So how does this feature in among all the differing diagnoses featured ?? He didn't give many reasons at all for what he did so I'd have expected more to be made of that little comment. Yet we're told a lot about psychopaths and narcissists and he didn't really fall into any of those pigeon-holes, I didn't find. Let's face it, at the end of the day, he was a bloke following his dick. That's the basest reason for the whole sorry saga as far as I can understand it, nothing more, nothing less.
I think this is cobblers, too, "If we are sexually attracted to someone, and then we become obsessed with them, we have a desire to procreate". Bollocks was what I wrote in my highlight.
I spotted an error right away at the beginning when poured was written and not pored and feared the worst but that was almost it for errors, surprisingly. One pops up so soon, you can usually guarantee the whole book will be littered but not so, thankfully !! The only other thing I spotted was l being written twice instead of I.
I Googled Dieter after I finished this and was delighted to read Frankie, Shannan's brother now has him.....poor little poppet......how he must've missed his little family. Just heartbreaking all round.
All in all, it is a really interesting book and I enjoyed it as I have been wondering about this case for a long old time and haven't spotted a book about it till now.
When she gave her diagnosis of the people involved, she failed to examine too closely Shanann's culpability and only focussed on the husband. That description of the wife as 100% blameless was at odds with the task of a certified psychotherapist. 'Experts' like to put us in boxes, so we are told Chris Watts was a psychopath, living under a cloak of normalcy most of his life. And his unfortunate wife was the blameless victim all her life.
Lena Derhally gives us some explanations by as far as possible tracking back through Chris's history alongside that of his wife. The friends of the family that she has spoken to adds to the context that this horrific tale.
My only reservations is because while the author has come up with an explanation for the seeming about face in Chris's personality, it can only be that and I felt that perhaps the book touches on the purient as there are precious few lessons to be learnt in this particular instance.
