About this event

Event info

Enter the fascinating world of crime scene investigation with this chilling memoir from JoWard of BBC’s Forensics the Real CSI.

For most people, dead bodies are horrifying. They are the physical representation of everything we’re afraid of: our own mortality, the unknown, the inevitability and lack of dignity of the end. But for Jo, a dead body is absolutely fascinating, as she finds the clues that will lead police to their killers. Every scene teaches her something new.

Jo is part of a generation of pioneering women who lead forensic investigation in the UK. Her investigations into high-profile crimes have been the subject of a BBC Two documentary, Forensics – the Real CSI.
