LYNDA LA PLANTE - MURDER ROOM

DUBLIN MURDER ONE FEST

THE BRIEF

Create a workshop based on a Lynda La Plante crime novel on behalf of sponsers Bonnier Zaffre and Lynda La Plante.

THE SOLUTION

Lynda La Plante’s newest novel Murder Mile was chosen for maximum publicity. The book, set in the sixties and part of the Jane Tennison series, was introduced with a reading from one of the chapters. This set the background to the crime scene which in itself contained various evidence to help solve the crime.

Visitors were then talked through, (via a question and answer session) gathering and processing the evidence by one of Think Forensics’ CSI’s.

The session was interrupted by an ex Senior Police Officer who informed the group of a development in the crime and spoke about the logistics of spearheading serious cases and major incidents.

It was then the turn of the visitors to piece together the clues. Under the guidance of our forensic experts they analysed fingerprints, blood spatter patterns, hair and footwear marks prior to applying their results to the profiles of several suspects before identifying the perpetrator. 

THE RESULT

The “Lynda La Plante Murder Room” was one of the highlights of the festival. Over 300 visitors were targeted during the course of two days and the profile of the author, Lynda La Plante, the series of books and the publishers Bonnier Zaffre were also raised with readers and new budding authors.
