Garrick History


David Suchet

Geoffrey Wansell

Bus Stop Killer



LifersIn 2016 Geoffrey finished work on a book for Michael Joseph and Penguin about the sixty or so men, and two women, who are subject to ‘whole life terms’ of imprisonment - which means they are almost certain to end their lives behind bars.

Geoffrey Wansell's Lifers is a chilling and fascinating look inside the minds of some of the world's most notorious criminals and serial killers.
In this ground-breaking book Wansell brings together interviews and original first-hand accounts from some of the most feared and dangerous criminals on the planet. Lifers offers a glimpse inside the minds of murderers as well as a chance to understand what it really means when 'life means life'.
By gradually gaining the trust of these prisoners, Geoffrey Wansell's Lifers reveals more of the criminal mind than has ever before been seen.

'Lifers' was published in June 2016, and is now due to be published in paperback in May 2018 with the new title 'Pure Evil'.

There is huge consumer demand for criminal exposés. Comparative titles 'Monster', based on the crimes of Josef Fritzl, sold 90,000 copies and
'Beyond Evil', an account of the Soham murders, sold 65,000 copies.
