True Crime – In Charge Of Murder – How a real murder case is worked

Former Detective Superintendent Bob Bridgestock, and now a crime writer with his wife Carol, is appearing at CSI Portsmouth 2011 on Saturday 5 November at the John Pounds Centre, Portsea. Bob is giving a talk on true crime, how a real murder case is worked and it promises to be an entertaining and very informative talk.  

Bob Bridgestock worked in the CID at every rank, retiring as a Detective Superintendent. In his last three years alone as a Senior Investigative Officer (SIO) he took charge of twenty-six murder investigations, twenty-three major incidents including shootings and attempted murders and over fifty suspicious deaths and numerous sexual assaults. He was a Force Hostage Negotiator and was involved in a protracted high profile investigation of police corruption in another police force. He was commended twenty four times for his work.

With his wife, Carol, who also worked with the police as a support worker for seventeen years, they are now joint authors of the crime novels featuring Jack Dylan. Deadly Focus was published in 2009 and hailed as, ‘A cracking story.’ The second in the series Consequences is published next spring.

Join Bob Bridgestock for this fascinating and entertaining talk to discover how a murder case is really worked from the inside and hear about the many diverse characters Bob has dealt with during his vast career.

Having a real unsolved murder in my own family, and one I have tried to get the answers to without success perhaps I'll be consulting Bob and asking him for his advice on getting the cold case reviewed!
