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 Resides. He also wrote the short fantasy novella "Crystal Prison of Kyr" and is a published playwright with his three act comedy "Happily Ever After".

Moats became one of the causalities of unemployment early 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 20 books starting with "The Classmate Murders" which introduces the main character, Jim Richards

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!

I started with the first book Classmate Murders and didn't stop until I had read the entire series. I love the books. Funny, exciting, mysterious, you just never know wh did it! I love the humor good clean reading that keeps you on the edge, and you learn to like all the main characters. Will read them again and again.

Warning: Jim Richards mysteries are a trap, but a good one. Once you read the first book, you read them all.

This series is becoming downright boring. All the plots are becoming repetitive as if Bob Moats is running out of ideas. Even the characters that were so endearing during the first books have lost their luster. All through the first 3/4 of this book, Penny can't do enough for her beloved cousin and then all of a sudden remembers that she hated her when they were children. As if you wouldn't remember that you hated someone. The cousin then drops out of the story. Also, is it really necessary for Bob to tell us about each and every time the characters go to Sonic's for a burger or Penny goes for a swim in their pool?! Honestly, it's as if he's just trying to fill up the pages. Then there's the totally poor editing issue running through the entire series. Since Bob Moats is self published, the editing should be his responsibility. If you are unable to find your own mistakes, then please hire someone who can. There is nothing more frustrating than to have your reading disrupted by words or sentences that don't make sense due to lack of punctuation, improper verb tense, missing or misspelled words, etc. The real crime of this series is how Bob Moats murders the English language.

This was awful. Totally unbelievable characters. Choppy writing. Penny is so nice to her cousin and then she all of a sudden remembers she doesn't like her? Lame.
