R.H. Johnson books available from Hampton, Westbrook Publishing

Author Russ Johnson has written fifteen novels, including nine in the NYPD Detective Pete Nazareth crime series. The books are works of fiction, but they have a ring of authenticity derived in part from his military, private-sector, and consulting experiences.

In early 2019 he introduced a new character, Travis Delta, in the geopolitical thriller, Hollow-Point Diplomacy.  There are now three more novels in the series: The Jericho Option, The China Mandate, and Mountains Will Fall.

When not writing crime fiction, he writes humorous satire under the pen name Alastair Flythe.

Russ lives in Kennebunk, Maine, and Princeton Junction, NJ.
