Yes, my ongoing project to discover cops or ex-cops who have taken to writing crime fiction - The Squad as I've named us!
When I started this project, I didn't think we'd get past the 50 mark, and yet new members keep coming along! All I can say is, that for those who want to read the realistic crime fiction from those who've been out on those mean streets, then there is a very long reading list available to you! So get reading!
For today's additions, my many thanks to crime writer Pearce Hansen who got in touch with me to put another couple of names forward for the Squad.
Two more American ex-cops who have taken to writing crime fiction: (1) Kent Anderson, having served in both the Oakland PD and the Portland PD, and (2) Will Beall, having served in the LAPD, including as a detective.
So today Kent and Will join the Squad, now making us 55 in number!
30 American, 13 British, 7 Australian, 2 Canadian, 1 French, 1 Bahamian, and 1 New Zealander.
I'll keep adding more as I come across them, and if you know of any others please feel free to drop me a line.

And please remember, my list is only for CRIME FICTION - not all the true crime and/or memoir writing by cops and ex-cops that's out there (as good as so much of that is).
Bringing you hard-boiled and noir tales of crime and corruption. And various related opinions!
