Fatalist book cover'The Fatalist' is the unique, fascinating true story of a Sydney bloke who discovered that his drinking buddy at the pub was a multiple murderer. 

Campbell McConachie was drinking and playing pool at the Burwood Hotel in 1988 when he first met Lindsay Rose. By that stage, Lindsay had already killed 3 people. 

'I drank at The Burwood on and off for six years. The last time I saw Lindsey as a free man was in early 1994 when he came to a poker game at my home. By then he'd committed two more murders — on Valentine's Day 1994 — and that made five.'

Campbell McConachie grew up in Sydney, Bahrain and Papua New Guinea. He has worked in the finance industry for twenty years. He studied Post-Graduate English at the University of Sydney and completed a Master of Arts (Creative Writing) at Western Sydney University. He interviewed Lindsey Rose in prison more than twenty-five times for 'The Fatalist', his first book.
