My Life with Murderers – written and read by David Wilson

My Life with Murderers tells the story of David’s journey from idealistic prison governor to expert criminologist and professor. He has spent his entire life working with violent men – especially men who have committed murder. His career so far has seen him sat across a table with all sorts of killers: sometimes in a tense interview; sometimes sharing a cup of tea (or something a little stronger); sometimes looking them in the eye to tell them they are a psychopath. Some of these men became David’s friends; others would still love to kill him. With experience unlike any other, David’s story is a fascinating and compelling study of human nature.
