Publisher's Summary

An Iranian terrorist cell has gotten its hands on weaponized Ergot-B, a compound that causes violent hysteria, madness and death within 24 hours,and plan to unleash the weapon on major cities around the world. Successful deployment would begin a bloodbath, as those exposed would kill everyone they encountered before succumbing to the compound's lethal effects.
Erik Somers - Callsign: Bishop - is called in to investigate, but his first discovery shocks him to the core. Dawoud Abbasi, the terrorist leader planning to unleash Ergot-B, is his biological father.
Bishop, along with an undercover Delta operator known as Callsign: Joker, race across the unforgiving Iranian desert in search of the Ergot-B. Seeking answers, both professional and personal, Bishop must fight against a private army, Iranian Special Forces and men driven mad by Ergot-B. With the life of his biological mother in the balance, and countless more people in cities around the world, Bishop must call on all his strength to not only survive, but also stop the man revealed as his father - even if he has to kill him.
The Callsign Books: Callsign: Bishop is part of a series of Chess Team novellas released in 2011. Each of the audiobooks follows a single member of the team and is titled for them: Callsign: Queen, Callsign: Knight, etc. The novellas are co-authored by Jeremy Robinson and five other fantastic authors. The stories take place after the events of Threshold, the third Jack Sigler thriller, but are designed to introduce listeners to the series. If you haven't listened to the novels, no worries. Enjoy the ride!


What the Critics Say

"Rocket-boosted action, brilliant speculation, and the recreation of a horror out of the mythologic past, all seamlessly blend into a rollercoaster ride of suspense and adventure." (James Rollins, New York Times best-selling author of Jake Ransom and the Skull King's Shadow)
"With Threshold Jeremy Robinson goes pedal to the metal into very dark territory. Fast-paced, action-packed and wonderfully creepy! Highly recommended!" (Jonathan Maberry, New York Times best-selling author of Rot & Ruin)
"If you like thrillers original, unpredictable and chock-full of action, you are going to love Jeremy Robinson...." (Stephen Coonts, New York Times best-selling author of Deep Black: Arctic Gold)
"How do you find an original story idea in the crowded action-thriller genre? Two words: Jeremy Robinson." (Scott Sigler, New York Times best-selling author of Ancestor)
"There's nothing timid about Robinson as he drops his readers off the cliff without a parachute and somehow manages to catch us an inch or two from doom." (Jeff Long, New York Times bestselling author of The Descent)

Fantastically Good.

Bishop is one of my favourite Jeremy Robinson characters....ever. I have been hoping and waiting for the individual character novellas to become available on audio and finally it has happened. Erik Somers, Callsign: Bishop is heading to Iran on a mission to Investigate a potential 'Manifold' facility, but all is not what it seems. This time, if things go wrong, Bishop won't be able to heal. The odds are high but this is Bishop, no-one messes with him.
Jeffrey Kafer's performance was fantastic, he immerses the listener in the story and leaves them wanting more.
