The Woman


Excerpt

Preface:
The woman marked for death was prettier than most, but otherwise, in many ways, an ordinary woman living an ordinary life in a quiet let-the-world-go-by beach town on the coast of Oregon. For Linda Darby, Sea Crest is a retreat, an escape, a place to hide. She had grown up knowing only that she did not want to become her mother: housedresses, housecleaning, and a butt too wide. That mindset had led to her present state, an ex-husband and enough one-night stands to have stopped counting.
Linda jogged on the beach most mornings. There was nothing better for maintaining trim legs and a tight tush. She dined alone most evenings before returning to her computer to enter any day trades she wanted executed upon the next opening of the financial markets. She had positioned the desk in her oceanfront condo so she could watch the comings and goings of her neighbors, whose lives seemed more exciting than her own. She was good enough at day trading to have bought her condo with cash, and several jumbo CDs that provided a steady living income. Day trading was flexible work and Linda appreciated the insulation from the questions of coworkers: Do you have children? What happened to your marriage? She just wanted to be left alone.
Then Linda Darby went out the door to go for a walk, and nothing for her would ever again be the same.



Professional Reviews

Believable
This is the first novel I read from David Bishop but will not be the last. I enjoyed it because it was believable. How many mysteries do you read that you ask yourself, "What a stupid thing for the victim to do" Like go after the trained killer alone or purposely place themselves in a situation where there is little chance to escape. No, the story line here is stong enough to provide suspence without relying on the ridiculas. The characters are well drawn out and the author ties everything up nicely and sensibly at the end. Cudos to David Bishop!

Complete Surprise
Being relatively new to Kindle books, I have to say that this book was probably the best that I have read so far. I was thinking that it would be a romance novel and it turned out to be a thriller. I would highly recommend this book and I will definitely read more books by David Bishop.

The Woman
The first book I read written by David Bishop and I finished it in 2 days. Good story line that keeps you wanting to turn the page.
