Signs of Murder

The new book from the UK’s leading criminologist, David Wilson

Before David Wilson became the UK’s pre-eminent criminologist, he was just a young boy growing up in the Scottish town of Carluke. As a child, the brutal murder of a young woman rocked this small community, but very quickly a man was arrested for the crime, convicted and put behind bars. For most, life slowly carried on – case closed.

But the whispers in the town were that the wrong man was behind bars: whispers that grew and grew over the years to the point that any time David visited friends and acquaintances would ask, in hushed tones, ‘What are you going to do about The Carluke Case?’

Carluke believed that a young man had been wrongly convicted.

Forty years later, David realised it was time for him to find out if the whispers were correct. It was time for him to return home, and find out the truth.
