Swindles 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.

He said: “Serial Killers are cunning, conniving, controlling, careful and I hate to say it, clever.

“They live apparently normal lives and get away with their crimes for years, until eventually detected.”

He will also look at the connections to the local area of the most famous murder cases.
