My Life with murderers by David Wilson, The UK’s leading criminologist.
Behind bars with the worlds most violent men.
Shortlisted for the Saltire non-fiction Book Of The year.
From prison governor to expert criminologist, David Wilson has had many encounters with all sorts of violent murderers. Some he has been able to sit down and have open discussions with over a cup of tea, whilst others have wanted to kill him as he has looked them in the eye and told them that they are psychopaths.
There is often a deep complexity to explain why some have these killers have turned out the way they are. Wilson gets under the skin and gives a warts and all account of his encounters and life’s work.
