Book Description

10 May 2012 James Bishop (Book 1)

The fantastic debut novel from Headline's latest thriller talent.

Nine hundred and seventy three days.

Thinking. Planning. Waiting for the perfect moment.

Former Marine James Bishop will only have one opportunity to make his prison break. And one chance to prove that he isn't responsible for the murders that put him inside.

Three years ago Bishop was the leader of an elite close protection team hired to protect a millionaire and his daughter. After being attacked, Bishop regained consciousness to find seven bodies strewn throughout the millionaire's Long Island mansion - including those of his two charges - and a mountain of evidence guaranteed to send him down for murder.

But to find out who set him up and why, Bishop needs to be free. And now the time has come to make his move.

Prepare yourself for the most exciting debut thriller of the year...

More About the Author

Jason Dean was born in South London and grew up in the south-east of England. During his formative years, his father - an avid reader - made a habit of stopping off at the local library on his way back from work, bringing home novels from a wide variety of genres and instilling in Jason a love for the written word from a very early age.

After finishing art college, Jason spent many years as a graphic designer before deciding what he really wanted to do was work for himself. He soon realised the best and most satisfying way to achieve this would be by writing the kind of American thrillers he's always loved reading. So for the next twelve months Jason spent his days working at his regular job, while his evenings and weekends were spent plotting and writing his first novel, 'The Wrong Man'.

He now lives in the Far East with his wife and dog, occasionally making trips to England or the States whenever the need arises. He is currently at work on his fourth James Bishop novel.

3.0 out of 5 stars fast paced debut 21 May 2012
By Nick Brett TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover
Bishop is an ex-marine turned close protection bodyguard. Trouble is, he's in prison, framed for the murder of his employer and he has spent months on planning an escape and getting some answers....

This is a thriller with pace and a nice debut. Bishop makes his escape and avoids detection as he starts to track down the people behind his frame up and to find out why. The bad guys are a little over the top, and the sub plot is not quite as clever as it first seems but there is still plenty here to enjoy. Bishop is the kind of stoic loner we have become accustomed to and there is a satisfying blend of action and mission impossible type cleverness.

As I said, a pretty good debut novel and an author worth keeping an eye on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 1st Thriller 13 May 2012
Format:Hardcover
After picking this book up at TESCO yesterday it turned out to be one of those brilliant books that was very well thought out and very easy to read. Some of the situations that his hero got into were a bit over the top but on the whole the book is well worth the money to read as once it starts on page 1 the action is never ending.
The kicker is at the end of the book when you get a snapshot of the next book but we will all have to wait until 2013 to read it. Hopefully, the wait will have been worth it and of course, that James Bishop isn't relegated to the (could have been better pile) as readers are very quick to give accolades on a book but without a follow up quicker than a year, tend to forget all about his hero. Hopefully his publishers have thought this out but we can never tell.

4.0 out of 5 stars The right man for the job 24 Jan 2013
By Michael Watson TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
I bought this book because I'd also obtained the second novel in this series - purely on recommendation - so it seemed worthwhile to start at the beginning.

This is the debut novel to introduce ex-Marine, nearly all action man hero, James Bishop. In this book, he's on the run, determined to find out why he was set up for multiple murders. Spending three years in gaol before managing to escape, he's had time to think and, although I coudn't always follow his train of thought, it does provide for a very quick-paced story.

Fortunately, and this where it confirms it is a work of fiction if confirmation were needed, he finds friends who just happen to be experts in various lines of somewhat criminal computer activities and, even better, one just happens to be young, beautiful and finds James very attractice. Hey-ho. So we're off on the hunt for answers.

It's well written, it flows well, too and Bishop soon has to put his knowledge, both physical and mental, to the test. In true American style, the criminals are at the top of the tree and Jack has a torrid climb to deal out his line of justice.

I am looking forward to 'Backtrack'. This debut novel also confirms that James Bishop is a good enough character to want to follow. Who he picks up and who he leaves behind on his journeys are well worth the read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Out for revenge. 26 Oct 2012
By Mrs. C. A. Troops VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
James Bishop is wrongly jailed for murder and after 3 years in prison has just one chance to escape and prove that he is innocent of the charges.
He had been in charge of a protection team hired to protect a millionaire and his daughter, both murdered, and obviously one of his team set him up.
Back at his parents old house he retrieves some belongings, money a gun. With help from Aleron and his sister Jenna he sets out to clear his name.
This is a fast moving, often tense, story with a fair bit of violence, the characters are well drawn and believable and you end up regarding them as friends.This book gripped me till the very end.
Can't wait for Jason Dean's next novel scheduled for 2013

By Sussman TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
When I first looked at this book I minded to think of David Janssen, aka Richard Kimble, in the classic 1960s drama American drama series' the fugitive'. While the narrative and plot differ, both Kimble and Bishop are looking to clear their name(s). In the case of James Bishop, he was, before jail, ex-marine who found work as a close protection bodyguard. He is imprisoned for a crime he did not commit. As time passes he plans to escape and find the truth. In Bishops mind his main driving force is pure revenge for the wrongs done to him.

Bishop waits for the right opportunity, and he then instigates his escape plan. Once he is on the outside, he must become a sleuth, in so far as he needs to back to the beginning of events and try and discover any `leads'. Bishops character and general operating parameters meant that he was somewhat of a loner in the past, but as a fugitive he needs to change the way he does things. He now finds that he has to rely on other people will they be a help, be a hindrance or just hand him over to the police?

This novel at times felt like `mixed bag', the narrative was placed within a frame work of Short chapters that seemed to move at pace, with the author injecting a thrills and spills. This style in places worked rather well especially in the middle and towards the end. However, the beginning of the book was confusing at best. It was hard to understand who was who and where they came into the plot. The plot play was further stretched by sections in the early chapters where elements slightly over the top and beggared believe. Bishop seems to suffer numerous injuries and body blows that would send anyone, even an ex-marine, straight to the hospital rather than `getting up and moving on with the narrative. That said as the narrative moved on, the pace and twists in plot play were highly enjoyable and was on the whole good read, a rather good start to the beginning of a series?
