Interview: John Leake
The American author John Leake lived in Vienna for ten years, working as a freelance writer and translator. His first book, Entering Hades, about the author and serial killer Jack Unterweger, was a Men's Vogue "Best Book of 2007" and the inspiration of The Infernal Comedy, starring John Malkovich.
In 2009, Lynda and Bob MacPherson asked Leake to join them in their ongoing search for the truth about what happened to their son Duncan. His book, Cold a Long Time: An Alpine Mystery recounts their tragic odyssey. It is a story about enduring love, perseverance, and the irrepressible desire to know. It is also the story of an incredibly elaborate and twisted deception.
In an interview with Linden MacIntyre, author John Leake discusses how he got involved with the Duncan MacPherson case.
