Who is Ed James?

Ed James is a Scottish author who writes crime fiction novels across multiple series and in multiple areas.

His Scott Cullen series follows the career of a young Edinburgh Detective investigating crimes from the bottom rung of the career ladder he’s desperate to climb.

The spin-off Craig Hunter series focuses on an Edinburgh detective shoved back into uniform, while overcoming his PTSD from his time in the army. 

Putting Dundee on the tartan noir map, the DS Vicky Dodds books star a driven female detective struggling to combine her complex home life with a heavy caseload.

Set four hundred miles south on the gritty streets of East London, his DI Fenchurch series features a detective with little to lose and a daughter to find..

Thousands of miles west, his three Max Carter thrillers star an FBI Special Agent hunting Seattle and the Pacific Northwest for missing children, while dealing with his own tragic past as a parental abductee.

Formerly an IT project manager, Ed began writing on planes, trains and automobiles to fill his weekly commute to London. He now writes full-time and lives in the Scottish Borders with a menagerie of rescued animals.
