Ex Army, retired cop and former Scenes Of Crime Officer. Colin Campbell is the author of British crime novels, Blue Knight White Cross, and Northern Ex, and the US thriller Jamaica Plain.
Campbell spent 3 years in the British Army and served 30 years in the West Yorkshire Police. He began writing while he was still a police officer, initially concentrating on horror fiction, which he loved. He soon realized however that his knowledge of police life gave him the perfect tools to enter the crime genre.
Campbell’s early crime novels were set in England, focusing on uniform police working the front line and the low level crime that blights everyday life. His Resurrection Man thrillers bring a rogue Yorkshire cop to America where culture clash and violence ensue. Jamaica Plain is the first in a series of novels featuring Jim Grant.
