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:

Who Murdered Garson Talmadge was a great read for anyone looking to read a different detective novel. Mr. Matthew Kile gives this novel humor,intrigue and realism who does not let the reader know his line of thought until the last minute. You will love all the characters, especially the ones you are suppose to hate. Great job David Bishop, I will definitely be reading more of you in the near future.


David Bishop’s protagonist, Matt Kile, is fabulous. The book is wel written with enough plot twists to keep me wondering. This is the second David Bishop book I’ve read- excuse me while i go purchase more! Great reading, right up with and equal to Harlan Coben, etc.


Another Bishop novel is sitting proudly on my top shelf, besides three of his others. Yep, I was not disappointed. This Matt Kile story contains all of the ingredients needed to create a page turner. I highly recommend Bishop’s works for those of you who enjoy a well-written, suspense-filled mystery with the perfect amount of humor.


This is my second Bishop book and I am already an addict! The plotting is intricate; the characterizations, deep; the storyline, riveting. It is obvious that he has the mind of a story teller. If he writes it, I will read it!


Author David Bishop was recommended to me by a trusted friend and I am glad she did. While I don’t normally read mysteries, I decided to read Who Murdered Garson Talmadge? I was thoroughly drawn into the story and the life of the main character, Matthew Kile, and can’t wait to read more. I highly recommend this story to those who enjoy murder-mysteries as well as those who used to, but maybe turned away from them because so many of them seem like cookie-cutter plots and characters. Matthew Kile is definitely not cookie-cutter and I will definitely read more of his adventures and other novels by David Bishop.

About The Author

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.
