Cheryl Akle spoke with Campbell about his harrowing discovery that his drinking buddy Lindsey Rose is an Australian contract killer, who was sentenced in January 1998 to five consecutive terms of life imprisonment without the possibility of parole.
In his book The Fatalist, Campbell is informed by the science of criminal psychology, court documents and transcripts, correspondence and many interviews with Lindsey Rose in the notorious Goulburn Supermax prison.
His account is a fascinating journey into the life and mind of a multiple murderer.
