Brian Drake, man about town and author of the STEVE DANE THRILLERS, threw some questions at me for an interview on his blog, BRIAN DRAKE AT LARGE…
PAUL BISHOP’S LIE CATCHERS
Here's a good one for those of you tired of the same-old-same with your police stories. Paul Bishop's LIE CATCHERS is a corker of a book, and a big plus are the bonus features. Paul includes two personal essays from his amazing law enforcement career: his first interrogation, and his last. They are terrific insights into what makes cops tick. There's more that I can say about them, but that takes us into spoiler territory. You simply have to read this one for yourself.
I slapped the cuffs on Paul and tossed him into my own holding tank for this interview:
Brian Drake: What inspired Lie Catchers?
Paul Bishop: I was looking for a new twist on an established genre. While pulling my hair out watching an interrogation conducted by real world detectives on an episode of 48 Hours, I realized I’d never come across a novel, movie, or TV show portraying the successful interrogation techniques I’d developed over thirty plus years with the LAPD dealing with uncountable suspects. I now teach interrogation to numerous law enforcement agencies – not just the techniques, but the psychological and physical sciences behind them. Finally, I took the hint my subconscious had been using to batter me and realized I was in a unique position to write an interrogation based novel and make it as realistic as fiction would allow. Lie Catchers is the result.
