Living With Murderers
with Professor David Wilson
Saturday 6 April, 3.30pm - 4.30pm
CMK Library, 555 Silbury Boulevard,
Milton Keynes MK9 3HL
Home may be where the heart is but – whether you are a man or a woman – it is also the place that you are most likely to be murdered.
Join award-winning criminologist Professor David Wilson with his latest book, Murder at Home, to explore how, for so many victims, their safest space is the place where they are most in danger. Delving into infamous as well as lesser-known cases, he takes us through different parts of the house, examining how each room’s use and purpose has changed over time, the normally unconsidered weapons that they contain and, ultimately, how these things combine into murder.
In the course of his professional life, David has met all kinds of killers. His knowledge of murder is unparalleled, and his unique experience brings a fascinating and compelling insight into human nature.
