Washington, D.C., is a town full of powerful people hiding ugly secrets. The blackmailer, a renaissance man, keeps his promise: pay me, I’ll return the juicy evidence I have against you, and you’ll never hear from me again.

Jack McCall, a former operative for the U.S. intelligence community and now a private investigator hunts this wily and diabolical madman. His victims, having paid and not been further extorted, are reticent to admit ever having been blackmailed.

McCall’s efforts to solve the case are assisted by Nora Burke, his sexy assistant who also helps Jack recover from the loss of his wife, and Max Logan, a retired detective of Irish-Scottish parentage.

Chock full of colorful characters from the worlds of politics, art, and the media, The Blackmail Club is a cerebral, physical and sexy five-course gourmet meal of mystery. Sit back and fasten your seatbelt, relax, and be entertained while you try to fit together the final pieces before you turn the final pages.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

David Bishop’s “The Blackmail Club” is hard to put down from the very beginning. I had intended to savor it, but I couldn’t resist staying up until the wee hours to finish the book.

I am so hoping that there will be more of Jack McCall books coming our way. Great story, wonderful characterization…and it absolutely kept me guessing….wonderful book. Highly recommended.

*******

I can’t wait to start my next Bishop book and I advise you to get going as well. THE BLACKMAIL CLUB is a great place to start

*******

Has everything you need: a heroic detective with a beautiful partner, corrupt cops and PI’s, nasty villains and an unpredictable ending. Sex, violence, alcohol, tobacco and firearms complete the tapestry of pages. This one is a page turner.

*******

The texture of the writing is reminiscent of Sam Spade, clear, concise, and always twisting and turning forward. It kept me on my Kindle too long many mornings.

About The Author

David Bishop stuck his author nose under the edge of the mystery tent with his first novel in October 2011. Since then his mysteries have maintained a constant presence on Amazon Best Selling Lists in multiple categories of mystery novels. He has also been listed numerous times among the 100 best selling authors of mysteries, including appearances among the top 10.

He writes several series characters:

MATT KILE MYSTERIES (in the order of release): Who Murdered Garson Talmadge, The Original Alibi, and Money & Murder.

Some personal comments from David:

I was born in Washington, D.C. From there my life likely mirrored that of a lot of my readers. We moved around. I got some education. Played some sports, and got some more education. Prior to becoming a novelist, I worked as a financial analyst determining the value of companies. But let’s talk about my current and final career, writing mystery novels.

As a writer, I conjure up occurrences designed to quickly bring the story to a roiling boil. Along the way, I invent people. Victims and villains and heroes are needed, as well as a supporting cast. I make these people fun and interesting so you will welcome them and introduce them to your friends. Primary characters need habits and tics and talents, the qualities that bring them to life and make you love them or hate them. You’ll want to see them humiliated or hunted down, be sucessful or seduced.

My mysteries offer you the opportunity to be challenged to find the villain from among the suspects. Clues as large as a log or as tiny as a bump thereon are salted throughout the stories. There are distractions in the form of false clues, called red herrings, which point to someone other than the real villain.

Take a journey with me. Laugh. Hold your breath. Cheer. Boo. The characters are rich and the plots are grabbers. I promise that you’ll be glad you came along. Some people don’t like golf or chocolate or even a hearty laugh. But I’ll bet you like some of those things and I’ll bet you’ll like my mysteries. Yours very truly, David Bishop

Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – David Bishop and ENT appreciate it.
