Joseph D. McNamara Published Books

“We never tire of McNamara’s ingenuity, his eye for authentic detail, and his ability to make a wild and rip-roaring cop story sound to us like real life.”


As the only retired police chief in the United States to hold a Ph.D. from Harvard University, it’s no wonder that author Joseph D. McNamara has churned five bestselling and equally stunning cop stories in The First Directive, The Fatal Command, Code 211 Blue, The Blue Mirage, and Love and Death in Silicon Valley

Whisking readers off from Silicon City to New York with breakneck suspense, these five compelling pieces of hardboiled cop thriller couched in McNamara’s impressive prose and adept narrative skills.
