Meet the Author

Detroit area resident, Bob Moats, has been writing short stories and plays for as long as he can remember. He has lost most of his original stories, typed or handwritten, in the numerous moves he has made from his hometown of Fraser, Michigan to Northern Michigan, to Las Vegas and back to Fraser, where he now lives. Moats became one of the causalities of unemployment in 2009, and had time on his hands to finally pursue a life long dream of writing a full blown crime novel. Thus was born the first book, "Classmate Murders".

What followed was a series of books starting with "The Classmate Murders" which introduces the main character, Jim Richards, who has to admit he has become a senior citizen, reluctantly. Richards, one day, receives an email from a childhood sweetheart asking for his help, but by the time he reaches her, she has been murdered. His life turns around and he is pulled into numerous murders of women from his high school who he hasn't seen in forty years. Along with a friend of his, Buck, a big, mustached biker, they go off to track down the killer before he can get to one former classmate, Penny Wickens, a TV talk show host who Jim has just fallen for while protecting her. The killer is also murdering the women right out from under police protection, driving homicide detective Will Trapper crazy, and he slowly depends on Jim to help. There's humor, suspense, wild chases across suburban Detroit with cops, classic cars and motorcycle clubs; murder, mayhem, a good amount of romance and a twist ending.

    Well, this one was just plain stupid. No way would the military

    Well, this one was just plain stupid. No way would the military personnel of Area 51 allow a civilian P.I. to just have access to the base! Honestly. The editing in this one was once again HORRIBLE. Guess his new editor isn't much better than he is. Glaring typos, missing words, transposed words, poorly constructed sentences and on and on.......... Bob, if you're going to quote Mr. Spock from Star Trek II, be sure you did some research and got the quote right. This is the worst of any of his books that I've read. The multiple story lines in this one just seemed jumbled and poorly structured. The real mystery here is how Bob Moats continues to sell books.

    Mr. Moats does it again!

    I'm working my way through the Jim Richard's books. Even though there seems to be a lack of editing, LOVE them all! Comparable to Stephanie Plum reads. THANK YOU, Bob Moats, for a great series!

    X-Files Revisited...

    Bob Moats must of had fun writing this one. Excitement to the end. Humorous 1950's conclusion.
