Overview

New revision/edits of this book as of August 2013.

Someone is murdering women from the class of '67 and it's up to Jim Richards, who has reluctantly just turned sixty, to stop him. Jim's life is in the dumps and then late one might he receives an email from a childhood sweetheart he hasn't seen in over 40 years, pleading for help but he doesn't get to her in time, she's been murdered. A killer is now stalking and killing his former female classmates for unknown reasons and Jim, along with his only friend Buck, a big, mustachioed biker, 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, and a good amount of romance.

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.

    Dominatrix murders

    Your books are fun to read. However, they need to be proofed better as there are lots of incoerect tenses, missing words or wrong words being used. Keep on writing!

    Really enjoyed --Don't judge a book by its cover!

    Really enjoyed characters close to my own age (56)could relate to the humor. Not at all what I expected from the cover picture. Have read the second book in the series and plan to read them all!

    Hey Bob, I loveeeee these storiesssss!:) They are super fantabul

    Hey Bob, I loveeeee these storiesssss!:) They are super fantabulous! My mom read them to make sure I could first. She told me they were for adults and that she didn't think I was big enough to read them. When I told her that I didn't care because I like reading murder books. I read all kinds of them. My mommy thought that reading older kinda stories would expand my vocabulary...your books definentally didl. I learned lots of new things!:) btw...are these real life things.... THAT WOULD BE SO COOLIATED! BD

    A quick, lighthearted page-turner

    This book really kept my attention. It's a nice short read, but once I started I couldn't put it down.

    I'm reading the rest of the series now. Defintely worth reading, especially for free!

    Not bad but a little predictable

    This was a nice short read with a pretty good story arch. It needed more descriptions because it was a little hard to follow or it dropped in consistency. For example I totally forgot the main characters name because it was mentioned only a few times in the begining and once in the last one hundred pages. All in all it was worth the read but i will not be re reading it.
