A great line up for the Crime and the City – CSI Portsmouth event on 6 November, where fiction in the form of a group of renowned crime writers meet fact, the experts from CSI, fingerprinting and forensic psychology

Portsmouth Central Library will be hosting the first ever Crime and the City (CSI Portsmouth) event on Saturday 6 November. Four of my fellow crime writers will join me and experts from Hampshire Constabulary and The International Centre for Research in Forensic Psychology to discuss crime fiction and fact in a unique event, as part of the Portsmouth Book fest.

More to follow but I can annouce that joining me, Pauline Rowson will be Simon Brett, June Hampson, Peter Lovesey and Graham Hurley.

On the expert side will be DS Martin Chudley, in charge of the Crime Scene Investigation team for Hampshire Constabulary and Jane Aston and her team from the Fingerprinting Bureau. With them will be Dr Claire Nee, Director of the International Centre for Research in Forensic Psychology at Portsmouth University, an expert in forensic psychology, and Paul Smith, an expert in Crime Scenes.

A mobile bookshop will be provided by the Hayling Island Bookshop.

It looks like being great value and great fun. Tickets go on sale from 11 September.  So for now the date is 6 November 2010 and the venue is Portsmouth Central Library.

More details and information on tickets to come over the next few weeks.
