Talks@Willoughby presents Duncan McNab speaking about The Snapshot Killer

Thursday 11 April 2019, 12.30pm to 1.30pm
Chatswood Library on The Concourse
Lower Ground, 409 Victoria Ave, Chatswood
FREE event

Former police detective, Duncan McNab, will speak about his latest book The Snapshot Killer - a chilling journey into the life and mind of serial killer Christopher Wilder – at Chatswood Library next month.

Wilder was about as bad as they get. A serial killer and predator, he first came to the attention of police in Sydney in 1963 as a teenager when he was charged with rape. Later as a young adult he relocated to Florida, USA.

Wilder plied his vile and deadly trade on two continents and did so undetected for more than 20 years, continually refining his method. His final flourish was a six-week spree of abduction, sexual assault and murder criss-crossing the USA and earning him the top spot on the FBI's ten most wanted list.

The Snapshot Killer explores how a monster was able to hide in plain sight and tells the tragic story of the many victims - at least twelve, but likely more - whose lives Wilder destroyed, with consequences that continue to resonate to this day.

Duncan McNab is a former police detective, private investigator, investigative journalist and media adviser to government and the private sector. He is the author of 7 books, including the phenomenally bestselling Dead Man Running (with Ross Coulthart), Outlaw Bikers in Australia, and Waterfront. Duncan was a producer on the Kennedy and Clarion award-winning Murder Uncovered series (7 Network) and his book Getting Away with Murder won the Ned Kelly Award for Best True Crime.

Lindfield Bookshop will provide copies of the author’s book for sale on the day.
