Malcolm John Webster is currently serving 30 years in a Scottish prison - a longer sentence than the Lockerbie Bomber was handed – after a life of crime that spanned the globe and raked in hundreds of thousands of pounds.
He had the cars, the yachts and the status symbols of the rich but the “accident” that claimed the life of his first wife Claire was coming back to haunt him. Cutting edge science and dogged police and forensic work was piecing together the true story of Malcolm’s life.
It involved murder, fire, fraud, theft and poisoning. He was a Black Widower who had already tried to kill a second wife on the other side of the world as well as plot the death of a third fiancee.
I broke the original world exclusive about Webster in the Sunday Mail newspaper and have followed it ever since. In The Black Widower I speak to the experts, the scientists and police officers responsible for putting Malcolm Webster behind bars for the rest of his life.
