Another two members, both American, from the new bunch of names I've collected recently for consideration to join The Squad.
For my next instalment in my ongoing project to discover cops or ex-cops (and some PIs) who have taken to writing crime fiction - The Squad as I've named us - we have one former LAPD veteran and a PI.
We have joining us today:
1. Paul Bishop - served 35 years with the LAPD - a true veteran of law enforcement.
2. Carol Lea Benjamin - worked a number of jobs, but worked as a PI and that's what she writes (amongst other things).
So, today our 2 new members above join The Squad, now making us 78 in number!
38 American, 19 British, 8 Australian, 3 Finnish, 2 Canadian, 2 New Zealanders, 1 French, 1 Bahamian, 1 Norwegian, 1 Italian, 1 Czech, and 1 Dutch.
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!
