How our safest space is where we’re most in danger.
A new title from the author of My Life with Murderers and A Plot to Kill, in this book David will be exploring the tragic prevalence of domestic murder by walking the reader through each room of the house, and discussing how, for so many victims, their own home is the place they are most in danger.
David Wilson is the UK’s leading criminologist, and his knowledge of murder is unparalleled. In this book he is taking a step back and look at the tragic, ordinary nature of murder – in the hope that we can do more to help victims in spotting the signs of risk sooner. By tracking through the rooms we live in David will uncover the everyday impact of violence and how it can touch us all.
David Wilson is Emeritus Professor of Criminology and the founding Director of the Centre for Applied Criminology at Birmingham City University. Prior to taking up an academic appointment in 1997, David was a prison governor working at a variety of establishments in a number of different roles.
Professor Wilson appears in the print and broadcast media as a commentator and presenter. His publishing includes Hunting Evil, A History of British Serial Killing, Signs of Murder, A Plot to Kill and his professional memoir, My Life with Murderers, which was shortlisted for the Saltire Prize for Non-Fiction.
Copies of the book will be for sale and Professor Wilson will be signing copies after his talk.
