A Parasite in the Mind is the second volume in the acclaimed Eat the Evidence trilogy by John C. Espy, which follows the story of a violent serial pedophile and murderer, Nathaneal Bar Jonah, from birth to death on a torrent of pedophilic and homicidal mayhem. It does not attempt to take the reader inside the mind of a serial killer, rather it attempts to take the serial perpetrator into the psyche of the reader. This allows the reader to experience a portion of the psychic primitiveness that a serial perpetrator uses to ensnare his victims. The books were compiled from hundreds of hours of interviews and more than a hundred thousand pages of court documents.
Part I: Eat the Evidence
Part III: There is No Body

John C. Espy has been practicing psychotherapy and psychoanalysis for the past thirty-five years. He was supervised by R.D. Laing for many years and conducted a weekly supervision group with Sheldon Kopp. He has worked extensively in the area of primitive and psychotic personalities and has interviewed more than twenty serial murderers and pedophiles in the United States and Europe as part of his research on the manifestation of malignant projective-identification. His current practice primarily focuses on clinical and forensic consultation and long term treatment. He was previously a neurotoxicologist with NASA and has taught at numerous universities throughout the United States. Dr Espy is also a long standing member of the American Academy of Psychotherapists, the American Association for Psychoanalysis in Clinical Social Work and northwestern United States group moderator for the International Neuropsychoanalysis Society.Review:
“I first met John Espy a few years ago when we worked together on a homicide case in northern Montana. I’ve worked on hundreds of cases and I’ve met a lot of investigators, scientists, and experts who have spent their lives researching the heights, and deep, deep depths, of the human psyche. But I never met an expert who impressed me more than John: tough, compassionate, experiences, literate, and clearly brilliant. Just the qualities a writer needs to be able to research, and understand, and explain to the reader the unbelievable journey through the mind of the subject of this amazing book. As terrifying as the voyage may be, you couldn’t have a better guide than John Espy. You know he’ll have your back. And you’ll need it." (Robert A. Leonard, Professor of Linguistics; Director, Institute for Forensic Linguistics, Threat Assessment and Strategic analysis)
“This journey through a pedophilic cannibal’s mind is at once a story for us all and blueprint for professional psychologists of a human so evil as to cause us all to rethink what our species is capable of. Dr. Espy, displaying here superb sharp-eyed empirical research and expressing his findings in a literally graceful manner, brings out the essence of Nathanael Bar Jonah in so real and immediate a way that I found it at times difficult even approaching the pages of this masterly work." (John Herrmann, former Director of Creative Writing)
“John Espy’s commitment to telling the truth about Nathaneal Bar Jonah and his associations is a testament to his search for justice in a world where all too often law enforcement acts as if the death of a criminal predicates the ability to find answers for his victims. His research is horrifyingly accurate. This book is a must-read for those who aren’t afraid of the truth, especially if the truth results in justice for all.” (Melanie Perkins, Emmy Award-Winning Filmmaker for Have You Seen Andy?)
