About

Nemeth and Thompson. Don’t let the booze on the desks or the shoddy furniture in their office make you underestimate this firm.

– Scott Alderberg, author of Graveyard Love

Unlawful Acts is a blog about crime fiction books filled with news and reviews. Over at Do Some Damage, Sam Belacqua said that Unlawful Acts is “helping spread the word about other authors, and I give a shit about that.”

David Nemeth
I graduated years ago from Emerson College with a BFA in Creative Writing. After college, I spent several years writing poetry. Then a baby came. I took the next 20 years or so away from writing as my wife and I raised our son. He’s older now. So writing it is. You can reach David at david.nemeth@gmail.com, Facebook, Twitter.

Jim Thomsen
Jim is a writer and manuscript editor whose hardboiled crime fiction has appeared in Shotgun Honey and West Coast Crime Wave. A former newspaper reporter and editor, he lives a noir existence, living nowhere and everywhere as a house sitter and contract copywriter, but makes his home base in his hometown of Bainbridge Island, Washington. He’s at work on his first novel, SOMEBODY COULD GET KILLED, a non-YA tale of teens, bullying, drug smuggling and murder set in 1979. Look for him on Facebook and Twitter, and check out his noir photography on Instagramjimthomsencreative.com.
