Amazon Bestselling Author

Matt Kile, ex-cop and ex-con, current smart-aleck, and a neighbor of Mr. and Mrs. Talmadge has built himself a comfortable career writing mysteries. Garson Talmadge sold weapons to Saddam Hussein, then moved out of France, came to America and married Clarice, a woman half his age. When Clarice is arrested for murdering her husband, Matt becomes the investigator for her defense attorney, and quickly learns there is a line of suspects stretching from the U.S. into Europe and the Middle East.

Not long after getting involved in the case Matt learns that Garson Talmadge’s weapons deals meant the FBI had an interest as well as the French Prefecture of Police. While Matt is simply trying to establish that Clarice is innocent, the FBI is trying to learn how Hussein got some of his weaponry, and powerful members of the French government and armaments industry wants to keep Matt from following the trail far enough to expose them.

Told in the first person, Matt shares his thoughts and wise remarks as he weaves his way through a mass of plot twists and turns to its conclusion, and learns Who Murdered Garson Talmadge.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

Just finished reading “Who Murdered Garson Talmadge?” and it was awesome! If you enjoy mystery and intrigue than you will totally enjoy the book! Matt Kile is one interesting ex-cop and ex-con and what he see’s, hears and discovers along the way keeps you alert and on your toes!


Who Murdered Garson Talmadge was a lighter read, a quick read, but still full of life. Or death, depending on your view. If you are looking for a mystery read that keeps you turning the pages, then in MY opinion, this is it.


David Bishop knows how to tell a great tale and to hook the reader into staying up late in the process. I loved Matt Kile. He has his faults, his humor, and his sex appeal. He also has his principles. He is a well developed character that I will look forward getting to know better in future works. Very well written.


This is a new author for me and it won’t be the last book I read by David Bishop! Great mystery, fun characters, nice writing style with humor, good dialog, and a good “who done it”! Keep up the good work.


It looks like David Bishop has done it again. This book is absolutely spectacular. I love the mystery and how the story plays out from start to finish.

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 Bestselling Lists in multiple categories of mystery novels. He has also been listed numerous times among the 100 bestselling authors of mysteries, including appearances in the top 10.

He writes several series characters:

MATT KILE MYSTERIES (in the order of release): Who Murdered Garson Talmadge, The Original Alibi, Money and Murder, and his newest release (Feb 1, 2014) Find My Little Sister.
MADDIE RICHARDS MYSTERIES (in order of release): The Beholder, and Death of a Bankster.
JACK McCALL MYSTERIES (in order of release): The Third Coincidence, and The Blackmail Club.
The stories within these series are independent, not continuing. They can be read in any order.

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 successful 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
