The event, which is touring the UK, is coming to the Mercure Hotel in Norwich on May 13 and 14 and the chilling evening will be hosted by forensic expert Jennifer Rees.

She will use case studies to explore the different categories of killers and will also look at the difference between male and female murderers.

Another part of the show explores the phenomenon of killer couples and shared psychosis, known as folie à deux syndrome, which will include examples of infamous pairs such as Fred and Rose West and the Moors murderers, Ian Brady and Myra Hindley.

She will also debunk common myths about serial killers and explore the clinical knowledge surrounding why they gain admirers, fan mail and even spouses in light of their atrocious crimes.
