CSI Winchester with crime authors Pauline Rowson and Natasha Cooper and Crime Experts from Hampshire Police
Best selling crime authors Pauline Rowson and Natasha Cooper will be appearing at CSI Winchester at the Winchester Discovery Centre, Hampshire on Saturday 8 March between 10am and 12 noon along side crime experts from Hampshire Police, Jane Aston and Carolyn Lovell.
Crime writers NJ Cooper and Pauline Rowson are joined by crime experts, Head of Operations for Hampshire Police Crime Scene Investigations, Carolyn Lovell and fingerprints expert Jane Aston.
Pauline Rowson writes contemporary crime novels featuring the flawed and rugged DI Andy Horton. She has been hailed as "redefining the genre of police drama” by setting it against the atmospheric backdrop of the ever changing sea. Her cops are tough yet fallible.
The DI Andy Horton series of crime novels has been acclaimed as having everything: compelling crimes, complex past history, a tough work environment, romantic entanglements and political intrigue played out against the dramatic and powerfully evocative British marine landscape of Portsmouth and the Solent.
The tenth in the series Death Surge was published in hardback and as an ebook in January 2014 and Death Lies Beneath the eighth in the series is published in paperback in February 2014.
NJ (Natasha) Cooper's most recent title Vengeance in Mind was shortlisted for the 2012 Gold Dagger. She has written three series: the first featuring part-time civil servant Willow King, who moonlights as a romantic novelist; a second led by barrister Trish Maguire; and most recently the Isle of Wight sequence about forensic psychologist Dr Karen Taylor.
Carolyn Lovell has worked for Hampshire Constabulary for over 17 years, starting as a Crime Scene Investigator. Now she is the senior manager in charge of CSI and provides wider forensic consultancy advice and training. Jane Aston is a Supervisor with the Hampshire Police Fingerprint Bureau. She will be on hand to talk about and demonstrate the methods used in this fascinating area of crime detection.
Questions will be put to the panel which will be followed by a book signing and the chance for the audience to chat to the authors and experts.
The fingerprint bureau will also be present. Tickets cost £5 and are available from the Winchester Discovery Centre on 01962 873603 or can be booked on line.
