Reviews

A Fishy Tale is another triumph by John J Jessop. It is a laugh out loud story of the exploits of the private investigation firm run by Dr Jason Longfellow and his wife Chelsea as they try to solve a series of murders of prize-winning fishermen in rural Virginia. In addition to the swashbuckling action A Fishy Tale sparkles with the interactions between Dr. Longfellow and his nurse wife. The humorous comments and actions between these two are fun of love and very relatable to anyone that has been married. Rick Spees, Author, Capitol Gains


When a couple of brothers pull a ninety-pound fish out of a Virginia lake, they know that something strange is 'goin' on.' Jason and Chelsea Longfellow, amateur PIs, dive into the mystery of what might connect the soggy body of a businessman, several missing fishermen, and a medical biotech company. John J. Jessop propels 'A Fishy Tale' with the speed of a Nitro Z21 Bass Boat toward its shocking conclusion. Henry G. Brinton, author of the environmental mystery "Windows of the Heavens".


John J Jessop has weaved a tall (fish) tale with unbelievable characters that are as relatable as if they were real...the reader becomes part of the story...You'll take the bait and more in Jessop's newest and best work yet. Ben Berkley, Author, The Selfish Giant
