I'm working my way through the swag of new potential members for The Squad, so here's another 5 colleagues joining us today - 4 Americans and 1 Australian.
This now takes us to 150 in number, with our 5 new members.
That's 150 cops and ex-cops (and some PIs) who have taken to writing crime fiction. You won't get more realistic crime tales than those from this Squad!
So, we have joining us today:
1. Art Adkins - served a long career with the LAPD and then the Gainesville PD in the US. Two crime novels I could find, plus non-fiction works.
2. Theresa Handrahan - a serving Federal Law Officer/Customs Officer with Homeland Security in the US. One crime novel I could find reference to.
3. Nelson Andreu - serving as the Chief of Police in the West Miami PD, following a long career with the Miami PD. One crime novel I could find.
4. Roger Bray - British-born and ex-Royal Navy, but emigrated to Australia and served with both the Australian Federal Police and the Queensland Police. Three crime novels so far.
5. John M. Coyle - served a long career with the LAPD and the FBI is the US. One crime novel I could find.
Our Squad now consists of:
4 New Zealanders
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!
