The ongoing project to discover cops or ex-cops who have taken to writing crime fiction - The Squad as I've named us!
Just today I came across a Canadian crime writer, Garry Rodgers, who is a former member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, including as a homicide investigator.
To digress slightly...
I actually saw Garry mentioned doing a blog piece for Rachel Thompson's blog - Rachel does a tremendous job providing supportive resources for survivors of sexual abuse.
Here's her link: www.rachelintheoc.com
And given my own professional past as a child abuse detective, a subject close to my heart as well.
So today Garry joins the Squad, now making us 53 in number!
28 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!
