'Hugely insightful and thought provoking . . . I read it from cover to cover in one go' - Emilia Fox

'With characteristic brilliance and admirable sensitivity, Wilson illuminates the complex causes of their often horrific crimes' - Professor Simon Winlow, Vice President of the British Society of Criminology

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. With experience unlike any other, David's story is a fascinating and compelling study of human nature.

“Disappointing”

I found this book disappointing. It felt like I had read it all before, many times! Doesn't really add anything new to the crime genre that is so popular at the moment. If you are a true crime novice you will... More

“Highly recommended- a welcome addition to the genre”

The niche memoir of the professional is a burgeoning market, as the books by Adam Kay, Sue Black and Richard Shepherd demonstrate. There aren’t many examples from British forensic psychologist and those that exist... More

“Hoping for more”

This did give an insight Into the life of a murderer but at times I felt it went of topic, which didn’t seem relevant.
