Another 9 colleagues join The Squad today, swelling its numbers to 164.
That's 164 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!
We have joining us today:
1. Dennis Banahan - served over 30 years with the Chicago PD, and has written two crime novels so far.
2. Wayne Zurl - served with the Suffolk County PD. He has written several crime novels.
3. George D. Shuman - served as an officer in Washington DC, and has written several crime novels.
4. Jason E. Fort - still a serving officer, I believe in South Carolina. A number of novels to his name.
5. Gerald Petievich - one of our "related cop" cousins, he served in the US Secret Service. He has written several crime novels, and has had some turned into movies.
6. Marc Goodman - served as a police officer (unsure where in the US) and with the FBI. I found one crime novel by him, but he writes in other genres as well.
7. Merle Temple - served as a deputy sheriff (not sure where) and with the Bureau of Narcotics in the US. He has written several crime novels, and he writes in other genres.
8. Micki Browning - served with the Durango PD in Colorado. She has written several crime novels.
9. Peter Ritchie - our only non-American cousin in this Squad update, he served with the police in Scotland and in London, as well as Europol. He has written a number of crime novels.

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!
