About James McCrone, author

McCrone is the author, most recently, of FAITHLESS ELECTOR, a suspense-thriller about stealing the presidential election, which Publishers Weekly calls a “fast-moving topical thriller.” Its “surprising twists add up to a highly suspenseful read.” Faithless Elector is a timely, compelling novel for our turbulent times...

The second Imogen Trager novel, called DARK NETWORK is coming October 20! He is hard at work on the third, and final book in the series, working title: "Consent of the Governed."

Although not based on events now gripping the world, the Imogen Trager series offers a sharp critique of US politics and its dependence on a Constitution that did not anticipate the ruthlessness of the modern criminal-business complex.  Illuminating how fragile our protocols are, James McCrone shows how easily power can be stolen by a hidden network with a criminal agenda.

McCrone is also at work on a play set in a busy New York kitchen, called Culinati, and a historical piece, exploring the friendship between Andrew Marvel and John Milton, as yet untitled.

He is a member of the International Association of Crime writers
