Getting stuck into the new bunch of names I've collected for consideration to join The Squad.
Here is 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!
Today's new members are 3 from Britain, and our first Dutch cousin!
I really do love adding new countries to The Squad - love that truly international flavour.
We have joining us today:
1. Paul Finch - served with the Greater Manchester Police in the UK.
2. Graham Ison - served with the Metropolitan Police in the UK.
3. Sir Basil Thomson (deceased) - an historical addition, Thomson served as an Assistant Commissioner with Scotland Yard.
4. A.C.Baantjer (deceased) - served with the Dutch Police.
So, today our 4 new members above join the Squad, now making us 76 in number!
36 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!
