Notes:
Originally published: 2021
Very little shocks criminologist David Wilson, who has interviewed some of the world's most notorious serial killers; and yet this extraordinary murder in his sleepy hometown of Buckingham astounded him. Like a modern-day Harold Shipman, Field had abused his position of power to target the elderly and fool an entire community. He almost got away with it. Using forensic analysis and fascinating personal insight, David takes us to the dark heart of middle England and discovers how Peter unwittingly supplied the blueprint for his own murder, how a tightknit community failed to intervene - and how an undetected psychopath could have easily become one of our most prolific serial killers.

Book:My life with murderers, behind bars with the world's most violent men:2020 Book
Author: Wilson, David
Year: 2020
Language: English
Type: Book
Content type: Bibliography
Publisher: Sphere
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Originally published: 2019 Professor David Wilson has spent his professional life working with violent men - especially men who have committed murder. Aged twenty-nine he became, at that time, the UK's youngest ever prison governor in charge of a jail and his career since then 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 that they are a psychopath. Some of these men became David's friends; others would still love to kill him. 'My Life with Murderers' tells the story of David's journey from idealistic prison governor to expert criminologist and professor.

Book:Signs of murder, a small town in Scotland, a miscarriage of justice and the search for the truth:2021 Book
Author: Wilson, David
Year: 2021
Language: English
Type: Book
Publisher: Sphere
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Originally published: 2020 Criminologist David Wilson returns to his home town of Carluke in Lanarkshire, to revisit a story of an unsolved murder that continues to haunt its past. It's a story that anyone growing up there had embedded in their DNA. Officially though, this isn't an 'unsolved murder'. A suspect was found guilty by a jury of his peers and so, as far as anyone official is concerned, this murder has been 'solved'. The 'murderer' has even now done his time, and been released from prison. But Carluke has always known that a young man was wrongly convicted. This book is a search for the truth.
