Are you an aspiring crime writer keen to bump off your baddies with scrupulous accuracy? Wondering how poisons work? The damage a knife does? Or what’s really detectable from viewing a crime scene or corpse? If so, don’t miss this informative hour! Science communicator Dr Kathryn Harkup is a chemist, author of A is for Arsenic, and host of Granite Noir’s popular Poisoned High Tea. Vaseem Khan, author of the Mumbai-set Ashwin Chopra series, works at University College London for the department of Security and Crime Science, and knows all about how science is used to tackle crime. Bring your notebooks and your curiosity—and remember, don’t try any of this at home, except in your imagination!
