The Work of a Detective
Sherlock Holmes said, “There is nothing like first-hand evidence.” Every case is different, but the kinds of clues a good detective seeks are often very similar from one case to another. In this Research for Writers Seminar led by a noted police officer, you will be led through a real case, following the detectives as they uncover leads and find a path to justice. Through an examination of how detectives do their work, you’ll be able to better understand and write your own characters and plotlines, whether you are writing detective stories, mysteries, or crime thrillers, or simply need a better understanding of police procedures and investigation to make a character or story-line ring true. Topics to be covered include: detective work, crime scene investigation, interrogation, witnesses and suspects, robberies, homicides, and violent crime. After a presentation, ample time will be available for questions and answers.
