Paul Bishop Has New Releases

Paul's actually a highly decorated L. A. P. D. police officer and has been on the beat for over 30 years.  He knows his stuff, and he's a great writer.  If you like police drama and action, you'll enjoy his books.

Calico Jack Walker and Tina Tamiko are back.

1978. Now retired from the L.A.P.D. and captain of his own fishing charter business, Calico Jack Walker pays for ignoring his instincts when he hires out to two shady characters who try to hijack his boat and almost murder his son.

Walker's ex-partner and lover, Tina Tamiko, has promoted to detective. She's deep into an investigation leading to a plot to hijack an L.A.P.D. property barge loaded with confiscated drugs and weapons slated for ocean dumping.

With another ex-partner framed for murder, somebody playing Robin Hood with stolen drug money, and a gang of dirty cops desperate for redemption, Walker and Tamiko know they're in deep water and it's time to gun up and throw down . . .

"A lively, bloody adventure from a first-class writer." - The New York Times

"Lusty, complex, always authentic . . . With this book Paul Bishop joins the ranks of great novelists." - Jonathan Kellerman

"A bonaroo cop book, and a bonaroo L.A. book most of all. It is well plotted, dark, funny, and grounded in a great love story. Bishop's evocaton of the LAPD is uniquely his own." - James Ellroy

The covers are done by Keith Birdsong.

It's 1977 and veteran L.A.P.D. cop Calico Jack Walker and his rookie partner, Tina Tamiko, are planning to make Calico's last shift on the job something special - but plans, as they do, come apart because Walker and Tamiko are good cops no matter what the cost . . . even if they're L.A. cops, in uniform, in their patrol car, on duty, and way out of their jurisdiction on the Las Vegas Strip.

When a major crime is going down, good cops never hesitate.


"The closest equivelent to Joe Wambaugh yet . . . Hot Pursuit could hardly be better." - The Los Angeles Times

"A full-throttle reading experience that sweeps you aboard with its opening sentences, speed shifts into high gear, and doesn't give you a chance to catch your breath until you've reached The End . . . the most exciting caper you're likely to find in print this year." - Hardboiled
