David Wilson is one of the UK's best-known and most innovative criminologists. This thought-provoking book stems from the author's parallel experiences in the public eye - as a reporter for Sky News and contributor to BBC, ITV and both national and local newspapers and magazines, especially in relation to high profile cases and fast-moving events in the field of crime and punishment. 'Looking for Laura' provides a window through which to appreciate the media pressures that this can create even for a professor in this field and former prison governor with considerable experience of working with offenders who hit the headlines. The book also looks at the way in which crime is packaged and presented for consumption by a news-hungry public. By considering a range of media situations in which the author has been involved, it provides an absorbing context within which to understand the still relatively new field of public criminology. It has a Foreword by the award-winning investigative journalist Donal MacIntyre
