CSI Basingstoke a great success, fun and highly informative

CSI Basingstoke Audience CSI Basingstoke, where crime fiction meets crime fact, held on Saturday 6 July at the Basingstoke Discovery Centre in Hampshire, England, was a great success.
The event was modelled on the highly successful CSI Portsmouth, which I first organised in 2010. This year will be the fourth year of CSI Portsmouth, a one day event bringing crime authors and experts together for lively panel discussions on Saturday 2 November at the National Museum of the Royal Navy in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard. 

Pauline Rowson and Peter Lovesey with moderator Angela HickenCSI Basingstoke followed the same format as that of CSI Portsmouth except that the Basingstoke event was a morning only panel. On the panel on the crime fiction side along with myself was Peter Lovesey who has won many major awards for his crime novels. His latest in the Detective Peter Diamond series is 'The Tooth Tattoo'.

Pauline Rowson, Peter Lovesey, Angela Hicken, Jane Aston, Carolyn LovellWe were joined on the expert side by Carolyn Lovell, Senior Manager, Hampshire Police Crime Scene Investigations and Jane Aston, Fingerprint Supervisor/Acting Bureau Trainer at Hampshire Police who both gave the audience a fascinating insight into their work.  The panel was expertly chaired by Angela Hicken of Hampshire Library Service  and the event was hosted by Basingstoke Discovery Centre.

The Hayling Island Bookshop provided a mobile book shop. Jane Aston was joined by her colleague, Heather Foster, and offered to take the delegates fingerprint and to press  it into a keep sake key ring to take away - a very popular attraction.

My thanks to everyone for making the event so successful and enjoyable and to the audience for joining us.

Undercurrent - DI Andy Horton Crime NovelThe latest DI Andy Horton  the ninth in the series Undercurrent was published this year.

The crime authors and experts for CSI Portsmouth 2013 are to be announced shortly and the event takes place this year on Saturday 2 November at the The Museum of the Royal Navy in Portsmouth's Historic Dockyard.
