"Come in, mother. It's open."
"My God, Paige. You're drinking wine. It's eight-thirty in the morning. What's wrong? On the phone you sounded all in a panic. By the way, your yard looks wonderful. Did you hire that gardener I told you about last month?"
"Yes, Mother. Yes. I hired your gardener. Damn it ... I didn't call you to talk about ... screw the friggin flowers, Mother."
"Relax, Paige. Relax. Nothing is worth getting in such a dither. Sit down. I'll get you some coffee. Oh, I see you've already made some. So, the bottle has not completely replaced the bean in your mornings. Whatever it is, dear, together we'll find a solution. We always do. I'm always here to do what must be done."
The author also likes awkwardly constructed sentences which contain supporting clauses not set off by commas. I was jolted completely out of the story time and again by having to reread a sentence to get the author's meaning. I read a lot and I easily get into a story so I'm not used to having to start and stop just to figure out how a sentence ought to be punctuated to make it understandable.
Lastly, I was not convinced by the love interest part of the story - I couldn't see what made the lovers attracted to one another, except that they said they were attracted.

My second book was Death of a Bankster... By this time I had decided to read ALL of Mr Bishop's books and I started with the Maddie Richards Mysteries. What a wonderful trip! "Bankster" is actually the second book in the Maddie Richards Mysteries. After finishing "Bankster", I purchased the first book in the series called "The Beholder", and I can't wait to get started. But I am getting ahead of myself.
The other reviewers did an excellent job of describing the plot lines of "Bankster", but I am more interested in describing why you will enjoy this book so much.
PLOT LINE .... The plot is different and exciting. We begin with a murder, and the FBI agents disappear, along with the victim.
Sergeant Maddie Richards, spends the plot line trying to discover what happened, by and to whom.
CHARACTERS... The characters are well established in the beginning chapters and the excitement builds from there. A character from "The Woman" is present in the "Bankster" and the transition is flawless. Ryan Testler is key to both stories. I agree with an earlier review, that the romance between Ryan and Maddie is totally believeable, and you want them to "get together", you will have to read the book to find out whether they do.
This book, just like Mr Bishop's other book is an absolute "page turner", leaving the reader so enthralled they will be reluntant to put the book down.
