LIE CATCHERS – 2015 Whitney Awards Finalist
With her special abilities, top LAPD Robbery-Homicide detective “Calamity” Jane Randall thought she knew all about interrogation until she met detective Ray Pagan. Wielding a suspect’s vocal intonations, emotions, and physical gestures like a scalpel, Pagan’s empathetic lie catching abilities are legendary. Both detectives are scarred by past tragedies, but when paired together, they threaten to tear the city apart searching for a duo of missing children – a search where the right answer to the wrong question can mean sudden death.
Ripped from the experiences of thirty-five year veteran LAPD detective and nationally recognized interrogator, Paul Bishop, Lie Catchers takes the reader inside the dark and dangerous mind games of the men and women for whom truth is an obsession.
A thirty-five year veteran of the Los Angeles Police Department, Paul Bishop’s career has included a three year tour with his department’s Anti-Terrorist Division and over twenty-five years’ experience in the investigation of sex crimes. His Special Assaults Units regularly produced the highest number of detective initiated arrests and highest crime clearance rates in the city. Twice honored as Detective of the Year, Paul has also received the Quality and Productivity Commission Award from the City of Los Angeles.
As a nationally recognized interrogator, Paul starred as the lead interrogator and driving force behind the ABC TV reality show Take the Money and Run from producer Jerry Bruckheimer.
Based on his expertise in deception detection, he currently conducts interrogation seminars for law enforcement, military, and arson investigators.
Paul has published fifteen novels, including five in his L.A.P.D. Homicide Detective Fey Croaker series. He has also written numerous scripts for episodic television and feature films.
He is the creator and editor of the new pulp noir boxing series, Fight Card, which includes over forty titles published under the pseudonym Jack Tunney. Paul’s own entries in the series are Felony Fists and Swamp Walloper, both featuring the two-fisted cop turned fighter, Patrick Felony Flynn. Paul is also co-creator and editor of Bishop and Hancock’s Pulse Fiction published by Pro Se Productions.
His latest novel, Lie Catchers, is set in the world of interrogation. He is currently working on the sequel, Lie Killers, as well as another cop novel,Gunhawks.
