Paul Bishop Has A New Fey Croaker Ebook Out

The third Detective Fey Croaker L.A.P.D. novel.

Paul Bishop is one of Los Angeles's most respected cops. For over thirty five years, he has played hardball on the streets for one of the toughest police departments in America. As a result, he brings the kind of authenticity to his Fey Croaker novels only an insider could achieve.

When Croaker: Tequila Mockingbird opens with a blistering start, the murder of a highly decorated detective assigned to the L.A.P.D.'s clandestine Anti-Terrorist Division appears to be an open-and-shut case of domestic violence turned deadly.

However, nothing is what it seems – as Fey Croaker discovers after the chief of police removes responsibility for the investigation from the department's elite Robbery-Homicide Division and assigns it to her. But the price of truth is high – maybe even higher than Fey can pay.

Struggling to overcome her personal demons, especially the death of her lover, Fey and her appealing crew – the dynamic Arch Hammersmith and Rhonda Lawless (a.k.a. Hammer and Nails), Brindle Jones, Abraham Benjamin Cohen (a.k.a. Alphabet), and Fey's second-in-command Monk Lawson – are turned into human targets as they race to stop a south-of-the-border terrorist from striking at the very heart of Los Angeles.

Riveting in its plausibility, Croaker: Tequila Mockingbird, confirms Paul Bishop's place among the best of the police thriller writers and shows Fey Croaker and her team at the top of their form.
