FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
Toronto, ON, September 29, 2011 - (Straight Line PR) – David A. Gibb Launches Book Website for Camouflaged Killer: The Shocking Double Life of Canadian Air Force Colonel Russell Williams
In advance of the book launch for Camouflaged Killer, to be published in the U.S. by Berkley Books and distributed in Canada by Penguin Group on October 4, 2011, author David A. Gibb has unveiled a multi-page website devoted to the 372-page book that includes an interactive feature to address concerns about women’s safety.
The website (www.camouflagedkiller.com) provides comprehensive information on the soon-to-be-released book, introduces the author, and details the book’s genesis.
Chris Roberts, CEO of SAFE International, will answer questions pertaining to personal safety and defense issues on the site’s Ask the Expert page (under Safety Tips).
Canadian Air Force Colonel Russell Williams once commanded the largest air force base in the country, and was one of the most respected and trusted soldiers in the military. Never forgetting a name, face, or the birthdays of those who worked under him, he was the poster boy of the Canadian military, and the speed at which he rose through the ranks reflected this. No one had the slightest clue that behind this façade a sexual sadist was quickly escalating from breaking and entering to sexually deviant acts of rape and murder.
In Camouflaged Killer, Gibb, a career investigator, presents new information about the man who personally piloted dignitaries, prime ministers, and members of the British royal family. Offering a fresh perspective, with extensive details on Williams’s background and the crimes that led to his capture, confession, and conviction, Gibb delves deep into the psychology behind the serial killer. Thoroughly researched, and with the support of well-respected psychologists, profilers, and forensic investigators, Camouflaged Killer documents the disturbing account of how one of Canada’s highest-ranking military officers – a seemingly normal and responsible man – became one of the country’s most notorious criminals.
Film rights to the book have already been acquired by Richard Lowry Productions Inc. of Montreal. Lowry is best known for his Emmy-nominated mini-series, To Catch a Killer, which starred Brian Dennehy as serial killer John Wayne Gacy. Development on the screen adaptation is set to begin immediately with production expected to follow next year.
