Before being sentenced to three life terms for the murder of Bristol newlywed Shirley Banks in April 1989, John Cannan boasted of over a hundred one-night stands. He was charming, he was handsome and he wooed his conquests - among them professional women - with flowers and champagne.When Suzy Lamplugh disappeared in July 1986 following her meeting with 'Mr Kipper', Cannan had only been out of prison for three days following and eight-year sentence for rape. After Cannan was convicted for the murder of Shirley Banks, the Lamplugh case was closed. To this day, Cannan denies his involvement in the Lamplugh case and protests his innocence in the murder of Shirley Banks. His appeal has been dismissed.Drawing on the latest psychological profiling knowledge developed in America by the FBI and, most importantly, an intense three-year correspondence with Cannan, Christopher Berry-Dee provides a chillingly personal, comprehensive portrait of a complex, intelligent but highly disturbed man.
