    Another great addition to the Chess Team stories. Bishop has always been an interesting character and it was nice to read more about him. I hope that a 'book 2' is in the works for this character.

    Another fantastic novella from Jeremy Robinson (author of the best selling Chess Team series).
    You will love reading about this mountain of a man cracking down an Iranian terrorist cell on their home turf.
    Bish is brutal and just fun to read about.
    You find out a lot about his past and get some background into his mindset (angry, always angry).

    such a great read.

    An incredible hulk.

    Bishop, Eric Somers, is adopted. His heritage is Iranian. He’s a big dude who allows his anger to build and boil, which it does with incredible speed. He’s just been sent a picture with names of his biological parents. They are in Iran. Bishop starts planning a trip to go meet them. 

    His plans are waylaid, however, when terrorists steal an old unattended Manifold experiment. The Manifold lab is buried in the desert. Deep Blue finds out that Bishop was already planning to go to Iran, so Bishop is sent to investigate the terrorists and find out exactly what it is they took. Turns out it was a mutated form of a fungal poison. And, it just happens that it is his biological father who has it now. 

    Bishop is not happy about the thought of his father being a terrorist leader. Nor is he happy to learn his contact turns out to be untrustworthy. He gets captured and taken straight to his biological father. But wait, what’s this? You will have to read the book to find out what happens. 

    Not much is shown of Bishop in this tale except that he is incredibly smart, like all Chess Team members. He’s very resourceful, and, maybe I mentioned this already, he gets very angry, very quickly. This is a very fast story. It was over before I knew it.

    Call Sign: Bishop features a solo tale about the Chess Teams Bis

    Call Sign: Bishop features a solo tale about the Chess Teams Bishop as he goes home to Iran.  Solid action with a few good plot twists, a little predictable but still good.  Bishop is a fun character and it was nice to read about him without the rest of the team.  Read this one too, after Prime, Pulse, Instinct, Threshold, and Call Sign novellas King book 1, Queen, and Rook.  Enjoy!

    The Chess Team books are a blast to read and I loved each of the Callsign books.  Get to know each character a little better with a great story.  You can't go wrong with Jeremy Robinson's books, check them out!
