Book Launch of Everyone Lies by A.D. Garrett
A.D. Garrett is actually the new partnership between crime writer Margaret Murphy and Professor Dave Barclay who is a forensic scientist. It was an entertaining evening. Margaret read two gripping passages from the book (one a piece of authentic-sounding dialogue and the other a description of forensics) which was neatly followed by a session by the professor who described how this last passage related to real -life. This was lively - and featured shoe-throwing in best Middle Eastern style (indicating how footwear can provide essential evidence, rather than to inflict injury!) .
The first chapter starts with a lecture, and it is here I think I can see the influence of the other half of A.D. Garrett, with some interesting and funny information on bodily fluids...well, one fluid in particular. I am looking forward to the rest with relish.
