A veteran cop and private detective, Scott Thrall, says: "I have been in law enforcement for over 32 years. During my career, I have investigated crimes and worked with victims both as a patrol officer and detective. I found the insights into the investigation, research and police procedure shared in ‘The Easy Way to Write Crime Fiction For PROFIT to be spot on."

Rob Parnell's brand new master-class on writing crime fiction shows you how.
Have you ever dreamed of writing a sensational bestseller? On Amazon Kindle? Or with a traditional publisher?
If you have, then there's no better place to start than by writing an exciting and page-turning crime thriller. Because, being a crime fiction author means you get respect - and book sales - even Hollywood film deals.
We all love a great detective!
From Sherlock Holmes to Alex Cross, there's something hugely compelling about characters that are driven to solve crimes.
And what better way to become wealthy than by following the clues left by all the great crime fiction authors like James Patterson, Kathy Reichs, Lee Child, Dennis Lehane, Agatha Christie and many others.
Rob Parnell says: "My theory is that investigative detection is really a metaphor for the writer's life."
During the 1930s, when the first crime fiction boom began, writers like Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett wrote about hard-boiled private detectives pursuing clients - and payment - from small grubby offices using nothing but their grit and determination - a clear analogy to the writer's life!
These struggling writers became overnight successes - and their names live on to this day.
In these more sophisticated times, crime detection has become a serious technology based enterprise. We have computers, forensics, and FBI profilers. Instead of petty thugs and roving husbands, we have serial killers, professional hit men and drug lords that confound the best efforts of law enforcement.
But there's one thing that hasn't changed.
And that's the humanity of the detective - and the writer.
Rob says: Recently I was at a publishing seminar with some of the biggest publishers on the planet - and here's what they were saying: "Crime Fiction is the Next Big Thing".My guess is that this conclusion has a lot to do with the release of "The Cuckoo's Calling" by Robert Galbraith (AKA JK Rowling). Publishers were inundated with fantasy manuscripts when Harry Potter was hot. Now, Joanne Rowling is expected to introduce millions of new readers to the crime fiction genre with her latest direction.
Which means crime fiction writers everywhere will benefit!
