The Makings of a Murderer Book Now

Join the Scottish detective, David Swindle, who brought serial killer Peter Tobin to justice, for a chilling, thrilling night at the theatre. True crime fans, and those with a curious mind, can explore the cases, the circumstances and the detective’s perspective on what really went on, the early warning signs and the clues behind The Makings of a Murderer.

What makes a serial killer tick? What are the tell-tale signs? What really goes on behind the scenes?

Learn about the biggest British serial killers of all time including Jack the Ripper, Peter Tobin, Harold Shipman, Peter Sutcliffe and “Killer Couples” Fred and Rose West and The Moors Murderers Ian Brady and Myra Hindley.

With more than 34 years as a senior detective, David shares his unique insight into the minds of the murderers, the famous cases that were never solved, and how the murderer got away with it… from someone on the inside.

David – whose ground-breaking Operation Anagram uncovered the activities of Tobin – paints an often-dark picture of how these monsters come to be in this gripping, fully-interactive, audio-visual first.

‘Serial Killers are cunning, conniving, controlling, careful and – I hate to say it – clever,’ says David. ‘They live apparently normal lives and get away with their crimes for years… until eventually detected.’

David also looks at the connections to the local area of the most famous murder cases.

The Makings of a Murderer – a chilling, thrilling, night at the theatre not to be missed.

‘The Makings of a Murderer is the most gripping criminology lecture you’re ever likely to attend – it had the audience on the edge of their seats’ (Lizzie McAllister, Daily Star)
