Christopher Wilder was about as bad as they get.
A predator and serial killer, he first came to the attention of police in Sydney when, as a teenager in 1963, he was charged with rape. A good behaviour bond was not a deterrent, and over the years his crimes escalated.
After moving to the USA in his early 20s, Wilder continued to perfect his vile and deadly trade. He was a chameleon with a modus operandi refined over the decades, luring young teenage girls with the promise of a career as a photographic model. His final depravity was a six-week spree of abduction, sexual assault and murder, crisscrossing the USA and putting him at number one on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted list.
Wilder’s horrors are still being uncovered. He is now a prime suspect for the infamous 1965 Wanda Beach murders, one of Australia’s most notorious unsolved crimes. The Snapshot Killer is a masterful and shocking account, by the best-selling author of Roger Rogerson, of how this monster was able to hide in plain sight. And how he was finally caught.
