Pat Brown Biography
Pat Brown is a nationally known criminal profiler, television commentator, author, and founder and CEO of The Pat Brown Criminal Profiling Agency and CEO/co-developer of The Pat Brown Method of Investigative Criminal Profiling for Major Crimes Detectives.
Pat has profiled cold cases for law enforcement for over twenty years. Her experiences in providing deductive profiling in homicide cases led her to develop the first Criminal Profiling and Investigative Analysis Certificate Program in the United States for Excelsior College which is a major provider of continuing education for military members and law enforcement. Recognizing the importance of criminal profiling as a tool in fresh cases as well as cold cases, Pat joined forces with Police Chief Robert Lee to bring criminal profiling directly to the skill set of major crimes detectives and together they have developed a specific method of investigative criminal profiling to be offered as necessary training for police detectives.
During the last decade and a half, Pat has provided crime commentary and forensic analysis in over three thousand television and radio appearances in the United States and across the globe. She has been seen regularly on the cable television news programs, CNN, MSNBC and FOX, and as been a frequent guest of The Today Show, The CBS Early Show, Canada AM, Larry King, Inside Edition, Nancy Grace, Issues with Jane Velez-Mitchell, Joy Behar, and America's Most Wanted. For four seasons, Pat profiled crimes on the weekly Court TV crime show, I, Detective. Pat was the host of the 2004 Discovery Channel documentary, The Mysterious Death of Cleopatra and in the spring of 2006, Pat went inside one of Florida's maximum-security prisons to interview a child murderer for the Discovery Channel series, Evil Minds. In 2010 she profiled a new Jack the Ripper suspect for Investigation Discovery's Mystery Files. Pat contributed special feature content for the 2005 home DVD edition of Profiler: Season Two and the 15th Anniversary Edition, 2006 DVD release of Quentin Tarantino's crime classic, Reservoir Dogs.
Pat is the author of six books: The Murder of Cleopatra (Prometheus Books 2013), The Truth about Book Publishing and Book Publicity (Amazon 2013), How to Save Your Daughter's Life (HCI 2012), Only the Truth (Amazon 2012), The Profiler: My Life Hunting Serial Killers and Psychopaths (Hyperion Voice 2010) and Killing for Sport: Inside the Minds of Serial Killers (Phoenix Books 2003).
Through The Pat Brown Criminal Profiling Agency , Pat provides criminal profiling consultation, education, and training to law enforcement, media, attorneys, universities, corporations, and private individuals.
Pat specializes in crime scene analysis, behavioral profiling, threat analysis, psychopathy, serial rape and murder, victimology, terrorism, and homicide investigation.
Pat holds a Master's Degree in Criminal Justice from Boston University.

If this issue is fixed, then I can't wait to finish the book and I will update this review.
I am happy to report that the formatting issues are fixed (though not the many typos). Unfortunately, I don't have a glowing review for this book. Three stars is pushing it. I'd say I was leaning four stars in the first third of the book (it seemed to have a lot of promise), then was feeling three stars through the middle, and was a solid two by the end. I hate to say it, but the end was simply awful. It was wrapped up with such brevity and simplicty that it felt like watching the last five minutes of a cheap soap opera.
I only gave it three stars because the ending was wrapped up so abruptly it was almost as if she had become sick of writing the book, also one element of a subplot was left unresolved in a way that seemed like an oversight.
Only The Truth unspools very fluidly, with a sweet simplicity that seems to come straight from the mind and heart of her unlikely hero, Billy Ray Hutchins, a kind, trusting soul who finds his lonely life filled by a troubled young drifter. Pat Brown has found a comfortable first person style of narrative with a hint of the vernacular that makes you believe his uneducated nature without its being too disruptive to the tale. Quite a delicate walk in any novel. Also, it doesn't get too bogged down in techical details, as you'd expect from a criminal profiler. The relationship aspects of this untraditonal romance were obviously as important to her as making the procedural aspects convincing.
Ms. Brown takes what seems to be a straightforward who-done-it, and slowly ratchets up the tension with each revelation that Billy Ray discovers, making us more concerned with the "whys" than anything else. I found that I wanted to read right through the story, which I did in two sittings, just to find out where she took him in his hunt for answers. And also to see if I'd be satisfied with the resolution. She didn't disappoint me in either, except, perhaps, in leaving me wanting a bit more of their story.
Good for you, Pat...always leave them wanting more! And best of luck in finding for this charming first novel the audience that it deserves, even without a commercial advertising budget. It's certainly worth the price I spent, and more. Let us know when it comes out in print!

Ditto! I thought I had missed something too. I have thought about it and come up with, maybe Covey gave Kristen the name of a distant relative (Billy Ray) that she could go and stay with to escape from her parents but that doesn't really explain what Billy Ray's actual connection was to the...
