DON'T JUDGE THE BOOK BY THE COVER,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Who Murdered Garson Talmadge (A Matt Kile Mystery Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
He did it AGAIN!!! Another dramatic hit written by the Murder, Mystery Master Mind, David Bishop. An exceptional read that will NOT disappoint you. Well written, with an extremely well thought out and intriguing plot, seasoned with a twist of humor and where GREED is right at the center of its core.
But, don't let the cover fool you. Let's face it, this book has all the characteristics of the old cliche. No one enjoys looking at the feet of a dead John Doe, tagged and ready for the autopsy table. And most dog lovers, that I know, are not too crazy about Chihuahuas. I have to admit it, I too shied away from reading this book, at first, because of its cover. It just didn't look interesting enough for me to read it. But since I had read two other books by David Bishop, and had enjoyed them very much, I decided to give it a shout. Besides, it was a new and unfamiliar character, Matt Kile; ex-cop and ex-con turned PI; witty and quick on his feet; smooth talker and big mouth, at the same time, with big cajones - something very much needed in today's society; a ladies man with a great sense of humor. So, what's not to like?
When a rich old man was topped off, it appeared to be an opened and closed case and the jury had reached its verdict - the victim's promiscuous trophy wife, young enough to be his daughter, was the perpetrator and guilty as charged for the premeditated murder of her husband, Garson Talmadge. However, when the Defense Attorney hired Matt Kile to conduct an investigation on the deceased, Matt quickly learned, that Garson was no "Saint" while living. With a rap sheet that stretched from France to Iraq, Garson had been a shrewd International Arms Dealer, who had acquired his wealth by selling French weapons to Saddam Hussein; Matt was poking at a Hornet's Nest and the road blocks began to appear to prevent him from digging any further. As Matt persists on finding the truth, the personal harassment conducted by the FBI escalated to a relentless all out assault by the French Secret Police, demanding he stop his investigation at once; well, stopping would prevent him from finding the real killer as well, and Matt wasn't about to do that.
You won't regret reading this book. Trust me!
