A chance to grill police, forensic experts and crime authors at CSI Portsmouth

Five internationally acclaimed best-selling crime authors will be appearing alongside police and forensic experts at this year’s CSI Portsmouth on Saturday 2 November so it's a great opportunity to grill both on aspects of their work and get the inside gen.

Taking part in CSI Portsmouth 2013 are crime authors S. J Bolton, Natasha Cooper, M.R. Hall, Kerry Wilkinson and myself.  I will also be acting as a participating moderator so I'll have plenty of questions to put to the panels.

There will also be bags of time for the audience to interrogate the panelists so if there is a question you've always wanted to ask a drugs intelligence officer, a former DCI of Scotland Yard, a police marine officer, forensic toxicologist or a crime author then now is your chance to do so.  All you need to do is purchase a ticket and come along for the day.

This one day event discussing crime fiction and fact takes place at The Princess Royal Gallery at the National Museum of the Royal Navy in the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.

Also on hand will be the Hampshire Police Fingerprint Bureau Team,  a mock up crime scene provided by students from the forensic science course at South Downs College and a forensic display by the Institute of Criminal Justice Studies, Portsmouth University on Entomology (maggots, flies) finger mark development (chemical treatments), trace evidence, and DNA.

Visit the CSI Portsmouth page for the full programme and details of the crime authors and experts appearing. The doors open at 10am.

Tickets cost £15 for the day which includes a FREE paperback book from the mobile bookshop provided on the day by The Hayling Island Bookshop. 

Telephone the Box Office on 023 9268 8037, Monday to Friday 9am - 5pm
Or The Hayling Island Bookshop Monday to Saturday 9am - 5pm 023 9246 6620
