As I guess you already know, I never write the same book twice. I’ve written crime and historical, fiction and non-fiction, comedy and noir. Now I’ve really gone and done it – as Maggie King would say. You’ve heard of Maggie King, I take it? Well, now’s your chance to hear what no one else has yet heard – the stories, in fact, she won’t even tell me.
Full details are on the Maggie King book page – shown as “Stories I Can’t Tell”
My previous book,‘The Newly Discovered Diary of Doctor Kristal’ is still available – very much so, and in one of the early critical responses, the estimable CRIME TIME magazine said, “Russell James is a crime writer (and historian of the genre) who absolutely refuses to be categorised; he is as adept at a kind of unsparing British hard-boiled writing as he is at black comedy.”
This was the start to their positive review for ‘The Newly Discovered Diary of Doctor Kristal’, a dark comedy set in the early Sixties about a doctor (35 years old and still a virgin) whose obsessions lead him to start murdering his patients.

- and as there are now several writers called Russell James (how dare they?) you might like to know that the relevant Author’s Page on Amazon is at Russell James

And a final mention for my one-year-old
EXIT 39, an iPhone novel
What’s so unusual about it – and why did I launch it exclusively in eBook format?
It was a breakaway book. Not a crime novel (I’d written a dozen), nor a historical (I’d written four), nor non-fiction (four again) but an up-to-the-minute tragicomedy . . . romantic comedy . . . modern-day satire? You tell me. But here’s the twist: the entire story was narrated into an iPhone! That was the only way the narrator could find the time.
Pity he could not find time to live.
