Well, what I originally envisaged as a small project has consistently proved me wrong! The Squad just keeps growing. I've been busy doing research over the holiday period and have a swag of new names to potentially add to our group. Here are 5 more for starters.
This now takes us to 145 in number, with our 5 new members.
That's 145 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. Susan Anderson - Anderson served as an officer with the Milton PD in Florida, and I found one crime fiction novel to date.
2. J. Todd Scott - Scott is still a serving Federal Agent with the DEA in the US, and now he has started writing crime fiction.
3. Denzil Meyrick - Meyrick served with the Strathclyde Police in Scotland and has now written a number of crime novels.
4. Omar Shahid Hamid - Hamid is our first Squad member from Pakistan. He served with the Karachi Police for many years and has so far written two crime novels.
5. Gerry O'Carroll - for another Squad first, O'Carroll is our first Irish cousin to join. He served in the Garda in Ireland before turning to writing crime fiction.
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!
