The festival for crime fiction writers and readers offers a unique insight into real-life criminal investigation.
With 20 experts in policing, forensic science, law, criminology, mental health, prisons, and more, we’ll guide you through the criminal investigation process, so that it can inform and inspire your crime writing and reading.
Experts include a Home Office pathologist; a DCI specialising in homicide, kidnap and extortion; and a forensic mental health nurse who has worked with some of the most dangerous offenders in the UK. Other experts specialise in the examination of textile fibre evidence and the use of mobile phone data for assisting police enquiries.
While providing money-can’t-buy access to a range of professionals, we’re also rooted in crime fiction and throughout the day we’ll work together to solve a crime written for the festival by Paula Hawkins, author of The Girl on the Train. See the full programme.
