High Risk : Children Without a Conscience
Chilling and not so easy to read book, not because the words are hard, but because the book is about character disturbed children, sociopaths.

They are at risk of becoming "trust bandits," con-men, liars, dance-away lovers, backstabbers of the business world, and even psychopathic killers.
