The ongoing project to discover cops or ex-cops who have taken to writing crime fiction - The Squad as I've named us!
After yesterday adding British ex-cop Rebecca Bradley to the Squad, Rebecca joined me on Twitter last night and introduced me to Ian Patrick, also British, who served 27 years in the Metropolitan Police. His debut crime novel, Rubicon, came out last year.
So today Ian joins the Squad, now making us 52 in number!
28 American, 13 British, 7 Australian, 1 French, 1 Canadian, 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).
