Crime Fiction Author Gregory James

The first time I met Gregory James, I felt as though I had been reunited with an old friend. We had a pint together while attending Thrillerfest in New York City (2019); what turned out to be a highlight for both of us.

Now, a year later, and with a novel under both of our belts, we reconnect to talk about the joy of producing a story, the hard work and drive that’s required to be successful, and perhaps most importantly, the passionate craft of writing that keeps us “creatives” going!

Today, I welcome Gregory James to Naked Monday to talk about his past life as a Cop, and his current career as both a Private Detective and an Author. Bordertown is his first novel.


A Broken Man’s Odyssey.
A Broken Community’s Only Hope.

Promising young detective Robert “Bo” Campbell is in a stack of trouble.

After accidentally shooting and killing his best friend and partner during a bungled inner city drug raid, he faces the sack or, even worse, jail. With his career and freedom hanging by a thread, he’s outcast to a remote posting on the border.

But something isn’t quite right in this frontier country. When he’s asked to cover up yet another murder on his very first day, he suspects he’s been set up to fail. But by whom?

Bo will battle for his own survival, but is he prepared to risk everything to save a community that’s already broken?

Bordertown, a debut novel set in the Australian bush, is a story of redemption, survival and determination by one man to rise against the odds and do what’s right. And a journey that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
