Item description for Into the Deep: The Hidden Confession of Natalee's Killer by Andrew G. Hodges...
"He tried so hard to hide the truth!"
He is Deepak Kalpoe, one of three prime suspects in the May 30, 2005 disappearance of American teenager Natalee Holloway on the tiny Caribbean island of Aruba.
Five days after the attractive blonde vanished, Kalpoe wrote a lengthy and ultimately revealing email to a friend. That email--between the lines-- tells the whole sordid story of Natelee Holoway's last night on earth.
Forensic psychiatrist Andrew Hodges utilizes a pioneering method of "thoughtprint decoding" based on the unconscious mind's universal urge to tell the truth. In Kalpoe's email Hodges found a greatly detailed and graphic unconscious confession--the real story of what transpired that dark night on the white, sandy beaches of Aruba.
Decoding Deepak's hidden messages scene by scene, he unlocks a Pandora's Box of sexual seduction, deceit and depravity.
Prepare yourself for shock after shock as you delve Into the Deep to learn what really happened to Natalee Holloway on that awful night in Aruba -- a paradise that suddenly turned into her own personal hell.

Reviews - What do customers think about Into the Deep: The Hidden Confession of Natalee's Killer?
Interesting Book but Thoughtprints Seem Iffy Apr 21, 2008
I enjoyed reading the book, but some of the things that the author hinged his analysis on, could be interpreted many ways. Another reviewer mentioned that English not being his native tongue, slips/verbiage could be attributed to that. That's true, but I guess one could also argue that maybe slips would be more readily apparent in someone not writing in their native tongue making his conduct more apparent in his words since he's not able to "weasel word" his explanations. But to me, the endorsements of the book/science were few and unknown. Perhaps this forensic science is still so new that we are just learning about it, or its a "junk science." Not sure, but I suggest the reader make his/her opinion. Certainly, profilers do look at writings for hints in a perp's psychological makeup, but whether it paints such a graphic and clear story is doubtful. Finally with the release of VanderSloot's covertly videotaped "confession" which I put more stake in, there was no mention of the K. brothers which makes one wonder.
Keeoing Hope Alive--Still! Apr 19, 2008
With "Into the Deep", we return to the Natalee case, that horrible abduction and murder that won't go away. Author Hodges describes himself as "an experienced psychiatrist" and "forensic psychologist". ID is based entirely an email sent by Deepak Kalpoe to an American woman he had befriended. Hodges parses, picks, peruses and pores over the email from every conceivable investigative angle. ID is absolutely thought provoking and challenging. It demands the utmost in reader concentration. Also required is a basic familiarity with the Natalee case. Hodges' premise is that Deepak, in his rambling, ungrammatical, free flowing, and bizarrely punctuated message, "confesses" to the abduction, gang rape and dumping of Natalee Holloway's body into the sea off the black island of Aruba. The author draws a clear distinction between the conscious (Left) brain and the unconscious (Right) brain. The Left may deny guilt and cover up bad deeds-but the Right always wants to come clean. The email, according to Hodges, is Deepak's Right-influenced "confession". Strenuous attention is paid to use and placement-of periods, capitals, colons, quotes, parenthesis and spacing between words. Hidden meanings are also examined: "Holiday Inn" means "Holloway End" and "dropping Natalee off at the Holiday Inn" means she is "buried in the waters off the Holiday Inn". Besides the concentration mentioned above, ID requires an act of faith by the reader in the professional competence of the author. Fair Warning: Some of the findings here are very graphic and disturbing. Natalee must have suffered a gruesome death after she was gang raped. Those looking for light reading or basic true crime should stay away from "Into the Deep". The scenes depicted here may be uncorroborated but this reader had that sinking feeling that they are all too true to life. This reviewer has always wondered how these 3 quiffs can live with themselves. According to ID, Deepak cannot. Are their lives the living Hell that Beth predicted? How do they sleep at night? Are they seeing shadows in the dark? The bottom line is that "Into the Deep" is highly recommended. We true believers can only keep hope alive in this sad case. Will justice ever be done?
Captivating Feb 7, 2008
I recently read Dr. Hodges' book and in my humble opinion I believe it solves this horrific case. It is far more complex and ugly than most realize. Another writer wrote that perhaps it was God's saving grace that allowed Natalee to die because emotional recovery after such an experience would be next to impossible. If you truly want to know what happened that night in May I recommend this book because I believe it tells the whole shocking story. It brings to life aspects of the case that never crossed my mind but after reading this book it became so logical. There are so many factors that went into this crime from the time Natalee met Joran until her body was disposed of. I highly recommend this book. Judy from PA
Not so sure about this Jan 11, 2008
The analysis of Deepak's email message is thought provoking and makes sense in many ways. I certainly do think that he and his two cohorts are guilty of a heinous crime involving Natalee. However, when analyzing the email, what should be taken into consideration is the fact that English is not Deepak's native language, and it is obvious that he does not properly speak or write it. Because this was a typed email message, some of the the misspellings and "slips" might be attributed to those factors rather subconscious indicators of crime specifics. Indeed, the case for the analysis of thoughtprints in the message is definitely intriguing, but I think it may have taken in too much where improper use of English and spelling were obvious.
If you want to know . . . Dec 30, 2007
. . . This guy tells you, based on Deepak's email to an older, female Amercian friend of Deepak's. Hodges dissects the email, line by line, to disclose the methods of means, opportunity and motive in the disappearance of Natalee Holloway. As well as the panic that ensued afterward. The book utilizes three typefaces to distinguish between Deepak's email, what Deepak's thoughtprint is REALLY revealing and what Hodges interprets as having happened. Do I believe. YES. I always thought that this was a simple crime, perpetrated on an unassuming, conscious and hence, UNWILLING victim.
