Appearing at CSI Portsmouth with Pauline Rowson is best selling crime author Michael Ridpath

Over the last few weeks I've been featuring the speakers who are appearing with me at CSI Portsmouth on Saturday 5 November at the John Pounds Centre, Portsmouth, UK. This week I'm featuring best selling crime author Michael Ridpath who joins me, and crime authors Mark Billingham and John Harvey for the afternoon between 2pm - 5pm along with police from Hampshire's Major Crime Team, forensic psychologist Dr Claire Nee,  and crime scene expert, Dr Paul Smith for a lively panel debate.

The audience will have the chance to put their questions to any of the crime experts or crime authors, but if you can't be there and you'd like to ask a question then please post one here and I will ensure it is put to the panel, and post their reply here.

CSI Portsmouth on 5 November where crime fiction meets crime fact.

Michael Ridpath shot to fame with his first novel, a financial thriller, Free to Trade, which was published in the spring of 1995 and reached number two in the best seller lists for eight weeks and has subsequently been published in 32 languages. He went on to write eight more highly successful financial thrillers before switching genres to create his Icelandic detective, Magnus, in the first of the Fire and Ice Series, Where the Shadows Lie, which was published in June 2010.

Highly acclaimed in the UK and abroad, Michael Ridpath’s crime novels have been hailed as ‘International thriller writing at its best, fine characters, page turning suspense and a great, fresh location.”

Where the Shadows Lie is published in over 20 countries. The second book in the series, 66 North, was published in May 2011.
