Florence, A seemingly inexplicable attack on a church fresco of Adam and Eve brings together an unlikely Published Oct. 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 was in all a great experience! Why did I start with this particular one?

Many times, Matt Kile stories have achieved the coveted 1 spot on the bestselling lists for mystery-series, historical-mysteries, and private investigator mysteries, as well as numerous times among the top bestselling novels of all genres.
Talmadge, has built himself a comfortable career writing mysteries. Garson Talmadge sold weapons to Saddam Hussein before retiring to America and marrying Clarice, a promiscuous woman half his age. When Clarice is arrested for murdering her husband, Matt becomes the investigator for her defense attorney. The novels are written in an interesting technique as they shift time to a historical era and star historical figures. Set in the s era, they are what could be referred to as noir film narratives with their tongue-in-cheek and fun tones. Bishop writes the Matt Kile series of novels in an unpretentious manner, giving excellent descriptions of place and people and a likable lead character full of zany humor.
His thoughts take him from his violent past, his life in prison, and the characters he has been involved with in the past. In his life as a private investigator, he moves from the US, to the UK, the Middle East, and continental Europe, and works with criminal defenders, business lawyers, ex-convicts, thugs, and police officers in trying to solve a range of mysteries. Kile is painted as a person vulnerable to his passions, which mainly involve women, though he is overall a knowledgeable and charming man.
In his past life, Kile had been married and had children who are mentioned from time to time. In his current life, the closest thing to a family that he has is his relationship with the Fidgery family, who are his best friends. The novels have the usual twists and turns that often leaves the reader wondering and trying to find clues about not only the mystery, but also trying to understand what Matt Kile will unearth from his investigations.
The Matt Kile series are masterful mysteries that provide engagement by looking into the life of a former detective and ex-convict who turns his life around to become a skillful writer.
Through Matt Kile, we understand the morality of a man who has been on both side of the crime divide and still manage to come out on top. What makes the Matt Kile series of novels so great is the lead character Matt Kile. Kile is very much unlike your ordinary detective as he laughs, smiles and overall does not take life too seriously. His thoughts can be hilarious, as he revels in the choice on who to sleep with, what to drink, and what to eat.
When we are first introduced to Kile, he is coming from prison where he had served a few years for his role in a much-publicized homicide. He is a refreshing and surprising private investigator with his non-conventional ways of investigation that often involve characters from his police and prison days. He is involved in many absurd and hilarious situations in his professional and love life, though Bishop does his best to keep everything clean. Through Matt Kile, the author writes a story full of twists and turns and authentic and witty dialogue.
While Kile is a madcap character whose rambling thoughts may make one believe that he would let the cat out of the bag, he always just gives enough just to keep one engaged until the explosive resolution of the mystery at the end of the story.
