Where do I start? For starters, Lawrence Crook is a full blown sociopath, coke addict (and possibly an alcoholic), who physically, emotionally and verbally abuses the woman he is with. As a narcissist, he will seem charming, caring, and loving at first. He will play you like a fiddle until you fall head over heals in love with him. Do not be fooled one bit or become another vicitim.
