Crime scene fire investigations feature in crime novels and at CSI Portsmouth

The Hampshire Police Fire Investigations Officer DC Terry Fitzjohn and Watch Manager Andy Earl of the Arson Task Force will be appearing at CSI Portsmouth 2012 on the morning panel along with Crime Scene Manager Carolyn Lovell from Hampshire Police and crime authors, Matt Hilton and Stephen Booth and myself.

One of my early thrillers, In Cold Daylight, is dedicated to fire fighters and in particular Red Watch at Southsea Fire Station, Portsmouth (England), my husband's former watch. The inspiration for In Cold Daylight came from a conversation I overheard while at the fire station one day when the watch were talking about the high number of their colleagues on one watch who had contracted cancer and some had sadly died. This gave me the idea of a story about a cover up over their deaths.

In Cold Daylight- thriller-Pauline RowsonIn Cold Daylight  was voted third in an online poll as the most popular novel for World Book Day 2008. An award winning thriller about one man's quest to discover the truth behind the deaths of fire fighters

Before fire-fighter Jack Bartholomew can reveal the cause of his own – and his colleagues’ cancer- he is murdered and silenced forever. But in a cryptic message he orchestrated before his untimely death, he has left a trail of clues that will lead his best friend, Marine Artist, Adam Greene, into a labyrinth of lies, secrets and government conspiracy.

In Cold Daylight by Pauline Rowson is available in paperback and as an e book on Kindle, Nook and Kobo. Available from all bookshops and on line, also on loan from libraries.
