Cover reveal of TRUTH WILL OUT - Truth Will Out
A mother and daughter are snatched on their drive home from a cinema. The crime has a number of chilling similarities to a cold case Professor Nick Fennimore had been lecturing on. Then Fennimore begins receiving taunting messages – is he being targeted by the kidnapper?

Meanwhile, a photograph emailed from Paris could bring Fennimore closer to discovering the fate of Suzie, his own daughter, now missing for six years. He seeks help from his old friend, DCI Kate Simms, recently returned from the US. But Kate is soon blocked from the investigation... A mother and child’s lives hang in the balance as Fennimore and Simms try to break through police bureaucracy to identify their abductor.

‘Simms and Fennimore are complex, compelling and just plain marvellous.’ Jeffery Deaver

Dr Simona Francese and her team at Sheffield Hallam University are trialling the use of matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI) technology to bring fingerprinting into the 21st century. The technology could provide crime investigators with additional – and in some cases even better – images of fingerprints, and also analyse the chemical information in the sweat to profile the gender of a suspect, what they have been eating, and even the presence of drugs.

Context is key in forensic science. Here I discuss the merits of visiting a crime scene, a real life case in which vital DNA evidence was found under layers of paint twelve years after a murder - and how it inspired a scene in Believe No One.

I love that even 4,200 years on manner of death can be determined. It's really cool to think that this giant of a man travelled a long way from home to end up in Sussex - and he was buried with a very rare bronze dagger.
