Overview

Headlines scream across the nation as a country in near panic pleads for the capture of the killers. With little progress, U.S. President Samuel Schroeder asks Jack McCall, a veteran of the CIA and Defense Intelligence, to head up a special multi-agency task force to find the killers. A frustrated and unhappy FBI designates, as its representative, Rachel Johnstone, an agent with whom Jack has had some personal history. The Third Coincidence unfolds amidst continued assassinations, accusations that the president is attempting to form his own secret police, and confirmation hearings for reluctant nominees to fill the vacant positions while the Supreme Court struggles to sustain a quorum. Will a terrorist group or a mad assassin succeed in destroying these revered intuitions? In the spirit of The Day of the Jackal and The Manchurian Candidate, this story is juxta-posed through the eyes of both the hunter and the hunted as the devious plot to change America hurdles forward.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
What works on the big screen doesn’t necessarily work on the page, as shown by this crude political thriller from Bishop (The Beholder). An inventive killer takes his grudge against the Supreme Court and the Federal Reserve Board to deadly extremes: he poisons Justice Adam Monroe; cuts Justice Herbert Clarkson Montgomery’s throat; and ensures Federal Reserve governor J.T. Santee suffers a fatal accident while driving too fast in the Poconos. President Samuel Schroeder calls on Jack McCall, a special assistant to the CIA director, to head a special task force. More killings follow, along with demands from someone identifying himself as Commander LW of the American Militia to Restore Representative Government. McCall’s team works feverishly to identify the killer, while LW continues his one-man, cross-country crusade to eliminate a growing list of targets. Pedestrian prose, stock characters, and a repetitive plot doom this cinematic effort. (Feb.)

    Someone is killing those at the top of our government with impun

    Someone is killing those at the top of our government with impunity. Supreme Court Justices. Federal Reserve Board Governors. No amount of security seems to be enough. The President has taken an unprecedented step by asking Jack McCall, formerly of the CIA, to lead a task force to find and stop the killer or killers before they strike again. They get their first lead when a letter arrives from a group calling itself “American Militia to Restore Representative Government” and signed by “Commander LW.” Their demands appear to be straightforward: abolish the Federal Reserve and have the entire Supreme Court stand down. With there being Supreme Court vacancies to fill and nominees reluctant to serve, McCall is put under tremendous pressure from the President, Congress and the public to find this group and put an end to their efforts. Can McCall catch the killers or will our government be forced to give in to their demands? Only time will tell and time is in short supply.

    The Third Coincidence by David Bishop is the most timely political thriller I believe I have ever read. There is a great deal of discontent in America right now. Americans are divided like never before over religious, economic and social issues. Militia groups have grown at an alarming rate. Bishop has woven all these facts together to create a thriller like no other. The characters are real in a way rarely found in fiction. The plot could easily be prophetic. This is without a doubt a 5 star adventure.-Reviewed by Jud Hanson

    Jack McCall has a great love for his country as he has proved ma

    Jack McCall has a great love for his country as he has proved many times before and will prove one more time, as he accepts a special assignment form the President to find out who is killing the Supreme Court justices. Jack puts together a team of agents he trust, which includes Rachael Johnstone, a former love interest. This is a story of mystery, murder and investigations, it makes you think you are involved in a real special ops investigation. This author has done a superb job of making the characters life-like and the story almost real. Congratulations on a wonderful book Mr. Bishop!
    Thanks to Net Galley and Oceanview Publishing for giving me the chance to read a great book.
