Part Two of the Eat The Evidence trilogy, A Parasite In The Mind, ended with law enforcement delving deeper into Nathan Bar Jonah's tainted past, his heinous crimes against children and discovering how Bar Jonah came to change his name from David Brown. Part Three, There Is No Body, examines Bar Jonah's relationship with pedophile Wayne Chapman, suspected of being complicit in the disappearance of Andy Puglisi and the notorious serial murderer, cannibal and necrophile, Charles Pierce. It looks at psychologists Ober and Sweitzer, in their relentless attempts to free Wayne Chapman from prison. There Is No Body takes the reader into the tension of the courtroom drama of Bar Jonah's trial and its aftermath, and delves deeper into Bar Jonah and Doc Bauman's deeply perverse relationship.

Reviews and Endorsements

‘This is the third volume of John Espy’s study of Nathan Bar Jonah (David Brown), a serial pedophile and murderer. Not only does Dr Espy give a picture of Bar Jonah’s life, but he also attempts to give the reader experience of how this man entered the being of his victims, a kind of “nematocyst that adroitly threads a barb into the body of its prey to inject their toxin and paralyze its victim.” Bar Jonah (his made-up Biblical name) wrote in jail, “I am the force, the me that lives inside you.” Dr Espy brings Bar Jonah’s trial to life. A grisly, chilling, saddening tale of corners of human horror writ large, enabling us to see threads of our being often working in undetected, subtle ways.’
— Michael Eigen, PhD, author of Madness and Murder, Rage, and The Psychotic Core

‘John Espy’s commitment to telling the truth about Nathan 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 (Best Investigative Journalism category) for Have You Seen Andy?

‘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 depths of the human psyche. But I never met an expert who impressed me more than John: tough, compassionate, experienced, 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.’
