James Munro was the pseudonym of British writer James William Mitchell (born 1926) who, in the late 1960s, wrote four superior spy thrillers under this byline. The hero is a British agent named John Craig, who works, mostly reluctantly, for Department K. The books, The Man Who Sold Death; Die Rich, Die Happy; The Money That Money Can't Buy; and The Innocent Bystanders were exceptionally tough-minded, well-written, and well-plotted. They had a genuinely heroic (and intelligent) protagonist, a brilliantly drawn eccentric M-type boss, and truly menacing villains.

Mitchell also wrote under the pseudonym Patrick O. McGuire.
