    1. David Bishop has written a masterful mystery, engaging his reader in conversation that offers both a story and an inside glimpse at how a former detective turned imprisoned murder turned skillful writer views life. Matthew Kile has come to grips with his own code of morality, and he lives comfortably within his own limits.A continuing friendship with his former partner Fidgery places Matt back on the job, albeit in a different role as a private investigator. Matt's luscious neighbor and friend i [...]

    2. This is a great standalone series opener and Kindle Unlimited library read. Matt Kile is a former cop who murdered a man on the court house steps, served time and became a successful author. His wife divorced him and his two girls are grown. He has become friends with a May-December couple from down the hall in his apartment building and is surprised by a call one morning asking him to come to their apartment. Grayson Talmadge has been shot and his wife, Clarice, is looking like a good candidate [...]

    3. I have just now "discovered" David Bishop, and finished reading Who Murdered Garson Talmadge half an hour ago. I rushed to write a review, only to find that others have already said almost all that needs to be said. I agree with all the reviews praising this unconventional mystery.I want to add that what also struck me was that the protagonist, Matt Kile, an ex-cop and ex-con, has a constant dialogue with the reader. At times, I felt like answering him! It's a great device, and it adds a persona [...]

    4. If you’re looking for a good mystery for a post-holiday read, I’d recommend David Bishop’s WHO MURDERED GARSON TALMADGE. I recently read the novel and thoroughly enjoyed it. This well-written tale of murder in California introduces us to Matt Kile, a former detective turned P.I. and mystery novelist. Kile’s a wise-cracking, quick-witted hero women can’t help but fall for, especially his neighbor and one-time lover, Clarice Talmadge, who’s been accused of murdering her husband. As Kil [...]

    5. My Kindle Prime Lending library book for this month.Maybe a 3-. Bishop is a good writer, and I enjoyed his prose style. His protagonist is an interesting guy. In the minus column, there is stereotyped sex and "action" that I found to be disappointing and rather spoiled my enjoyment. I do not think I will be interested in reading any more in the series. Given his writing, though, I might read another if he were to write in a different crime subgenre.

    6. David Bishop's Who Murdered Garson Talmadge is a lot like dinner at a good chain restaurant. The meal is well prepared, looks good on the plate, is reasonably tasty and rather filling. In fact, you'll probably want to go back from time to time. But, by the time you get home, you'll probably forget what you ordered and, no matter how many times you go back, you'll never find that signature dish. Unlike the chain restaurant though, Who Murdered Garson Talmadge is the first novel in a series featur [...]

    7. Perfectly PacedThis Matt Kyle Mystery is a rich and broad introduction to a writer of mysteries (like Jessica Fletcher in Murder She Wrote) who had been a cop, then murdered a felon when he was walking out of the courthouse acquitted, and was sent to jail. He started selling novels, but when someone he knows is accused of murder, he just has to solve it. And it is not an easy one to solve. Like Colombo, this cop studies people, character, propensity, and probability. Matt Kyle is a man on the wa [...]

    8. An enjoyable readThe book kept moving and kept my interest. It had some nice plot twists that kept me guessing. I had to get the second in the series.

    9. In a 2001 article on writing fiction, Elmore Leonard, the legendary author of Get Shorty and many other books, quoted John Steinbeck saying that authors should skip the "hooptedoodle." He meant get to the point. Tell the story. Cut out the garbage and verbiage. David Bishop's book, Who Murdered Garson Talmadge is a perfect example of skipping the hooptedoodle. It's a masterpiece of fine writing, cutting humor and zany characters.Matt Kile is a mystery writer and sometime private investigator, ha [...]

    10. Moral DilemmasA study in characters with flaws, "Who Murdered Garson Talmadge," entertains while it requires the reader to suspend disbelief. The flaws trip the characters regularly, as they are supposed to do, both in fiction and in life. Sometimes the author allows a character to slip out of his assigned role, with dialogue that doesn't suit. I'd skip that, if I were you, Mr. Bishop, as it adds nothing but corniness to the story. Let the characters speak in their own consistent voices. And don [...]

    11. I like this unpretentious author. His mechanics of good writing were excellent. I especially liked his descriptions of people and places. This book had no explicit sex scenes unless him peddling her bicycle one or two times makes a reader uncomfortable. A bare minimum of vulgarity was used. I thank the author for that consideration. An octogenarian arms dealer was found shot to death in his bedroom. A slew of characters were suspected, but his thirty-something wife was charged and arrested for t [...]

    12. This is a fast read and I enjoyed it because I couldn't figure out who the murderer was half way through the book. That being said, the characters are uneven. Garson Talmadge, the victim, is bad to the bone and has few redeeming qualities. His daughter, Susan, is a little unbelievable. She a smart, seductress who is goodhearted and works as a pole dancer on the side and has graduated with her law degree with honors. Charles, the brother is also one dimensional like his father. I did, however, li [...]

    13. Purchase this story. You won't be disappointed.What can I say? When I finished this book, I immediately purchased another book by the author. Why? Writing Style: Told in the 1st person, a feat difficult to pull off but Bishop succeeds in pulling you heart and soul into the mind of the protagonist. 5 starsPlot: Twists, turns, humor, good character development. It's all there. 5 starsEntertainment: Not once did I feel as if the story dragged. There were a couple of minor editing errors but not sev [...]

    14. One of the reasons I read this book was I liked "The Woman" by this same author very much. I think in some ways this may be an even better crafted mystery than "The Woman", more involved plot with more twists and turns and side issues. However, I am definitely a character-driven reader and I simply did not connect with this protagonist.I've been involved in law enforcement myself and I just don't connect well to the good-cop-gone-bad (regardless of the reason). This wasn't something I could work [...]

    15. One indication for me of a good book is how hard it is to put down, and this book is one of those. Matt Kile is (as with many protagonists in murder mysteries) an ex-detective who is hired to prove that Garson Talmadge's wife did not kill him. As you might expect with a divorced thirty-something guy, there are some titillating adventures with the wife and her step-daughter, but it's not too graphic. The plot is good, but it seemed to me that some of the things that happened are not fully explain [...]

    16. 22 of 75 for 2015. Take one ex-cop/ex-con (ok, he took justice into his own hands when the courts threw out a murder case), set him up as a very successful mystery writer, and put him in a condo down the hall from a younger nympho and her elderly, arms dealing, husband, then kill the old coot. What's an investigator supposed to do? Great characters. non-stop action, and lots of questions raised (and ultimately answered). This is one of the best reads in the genre I've come across and I look forw [...]

    17. Loved the characters. Interested in how Matt Kile is going to fall into solving another mystery as he is "only" a writer. Thought the book was smoothly written. Not too wordy. Twists and turns and I didn't figure out who done it til it was revealed. Just the way I like it. Spoils it for me to know before the end. Will definetely buy the #2 in this series and am looking forward to reading more of David Bishop

    18. I really liked this book. Great story line, great characters. Especially the main character Matt Kile. Unusual storyline for a main character, but one that makes the book. Actually like his euphemisms for sex. Very funny, even though the story is'nt. We're talking murder. If you want to read a murder mystery without a lot of foul language, lots of blood, guts and gore, then this is it. I know you will enjoy it.

    19. Matt Kyle gets sucked into a murder investigation when his neighbor is murdered and the wife is arrested. The guy was a gun dealer in the Middle East so there are no shortage of suspects, including the wife (who Matt slept with previously) and his kids who he used during his arms sales days. Some pretty juvenile stuff with the hot wife and step-daughter. Obviously written by a man. Some language.

    20. Who Murdered Garson Talmadge is an enjoyable read. I like the main character Matt Kile, so it makes you want to read on about him. Matt is the kind of guy that seems to get caught up in all kinds of things. After reading this book I found other books in the Matt Kile Series and started on The Original Alibi.

    21. What magnificent book.I read this book in three days, I couldn't help myself. Mr. Bishop (the author) had me hooked from the first page, the mix of humor,legal suspense,and masculinity will have you wandering who did it and just when you think you've figured it out the murderer turns out to be the one you would least expect. This book is a real page turner.

    22. Well done LA noirIn the best tradition of the PI genre, Matt Kile, former cop, ex-con, writer and part-time PI is drawn into helping solve the murder of a neighbor by the sexy dame. It all moves smoothly without resorting to graphic violence or sex to tell a solid story. Read it over two days. Looking forward to adding David Bishop as one of my go to authors!

    23. Good mysteryThis is a pretty good who-done-it. I like the authors take on life and the practicality he assigns his protagonist. There's nothing raunchy, but he tells you straight out what's going on in the characters thoughts. I found his euphemisms entertaining. Overall a good read and I would read more from the author.

    24. I like this character. Reminds me a bit of the old film noir goodies. He's straight forward in his writing while maintaining humor and suspense. I love his off the wall descriptions of some of the events and characters.

    25. entertainingFour and a half stars! The book - the plot and the story - was rather slow, but the author's humor and color and story telling ability were what kept me hooked. All in all a good book and a good read.

    26. The style of writing reminded me very much of Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich. Just like her books, it had some good jokes, fast pacing events, and was an easy read It was entertaining, but it will be one of those books I forget in a few months.

    27. Who killed the old man?There are so many good suspects and possible suspects that you'll be guessing until the end. Some you hope are the bad guy that gets caught. Some you hope get away with it even if they're guilty as sin. All in all a very enjoyable read.

    28. I like a good mystery that I can't guess too far in advance anyway, and this one has the extra benefit of being totally believable as well. Fans of the 'hard boiled detective' genre should especially like David Bishop's style.

    29. I enjoyed this Matthew Kile mystery by David Bishop. I wasn't so sure I would like it when starting the book, but as time passed and I read further, the book grabbed my attention and kept me interested. I'm looking forward to my next Matthew Kile book!
