Killer Instinct Book Launch at Annie's Books

Leading forensic psychiatrist Donald Grant was the first State Director of Forensic Psychiatry in Queensland and sat on the bench of the state's unique Mental Health Court for five years. His life's work has been understanding the murderous mind.
Grant asks what it is about murder that fascinates us. Is it a chill whisper of fear reminding us we too can kill? Grant describes ten true murder cases, each different, each complex, each with unique triggers. Fact leaves fiction for dead. For those directly affected, murder is a sombre and scarring event. For most of us, murder is an arm's length experience, close enough to frighten and fascinate yet far enough not to traumatise. Grant proposes that our restless chatter about it, our state of heightened alert, our endless viewing, may be play therapy, reassuring us that our own killer instinct is under control.

Bookings can be made here.
