The Psychopath Within

A psychopath, a murderer and a judge.

Nobody wants to adopt a teenager.

But somebody has to. That’s what Cathy and Charles Dolan told themselves five years ago when they adopted troubled teen Sam. All it took to turn his life around were two loving, supportive parents, and look at him now: a first-class degree under his belt and a place at London’s most prestigious law school secured.

The shock suicide of Judge Margaret Hogarth, the woman who oversaw Sam’s adoption, showed that life isn’t always a bed of roses.

And it only got worse when her death proved to be a snippet of what was to come.

Sometimes, family court can be murder.
