David Bishop's Two Latest Releases : The Twists & Turns of Matrimony and Murder and Scandalous Behavior
The Twists & Turns of Matrimony and Murder
Released December 2017
The Twists & Turns of Matrimony and Murder sets somewhere between the stories of Prince Charming and War of the Roses. Constance Merriweather remembered the part of her wedding vows about for better or for worse. During and after the ceremony she smiled and played kissy-face while steeling herself for the expected worse. Frank Merriweather thought he was getting the better, but soon learned he was mistaken. The two of them settled in to co-exist in their matrimonial forest. Then came the murder. Everyone knew who was dead, but no one knew for certain who was supposed to be dead. And, of course, who committed the murder was complicated by whether the actual victim was the intended victim.

America has a new president, Robert Wellington. Like several presidents before him, President Wellington inherits an old problem—the Middle East, but he has a new solution: The Wellington Doctrine. He selects a man outside diplomatic channels, Ryan Testler, to quietly carry the draft of that doctrine to the leaders of Europe and the Middle East. Accompanied by Linda Darby, Ryan travels as a tourist seeing the sights and powerful leaders of foreign governments. As word of his mission leaks, he and Linda are followed, accosted, and threatened. The fate of The Wellington Doctrine and, perhaps, the resolution of America’s entanglement in the Middle East hangs on Ryan and Linda surviving and succeeding.
