Meet the Author

Born and raised in Randolph, Massachusetts, Ron Adams loves a good story. Tended to by an extended family, he learned to appreciate the tales told by his great grandfather of "the old days" in Boston, of the family histories related by his grandparents, aunts, uncles, and parents. An assortment of characters flocked his parent's home; priests, cops, bar owners, bikers, Marines, cross country hitchhiking cousins, and international animal rescue workers all provided a writing base for his imagination.

A fan of mystery and crime fiction, Adams graduated from Daemen College in Amherst, New York in 1983, and published his first novel, Lake Effect, in 2003. He is active in online writing communities, and has written a collection of short stories, as well as articles on topics from rehabilitation to fitness and health to poker basics.

Adams has lived in the Buffalo area for a quarter century. He currently resides in Hamburg, New York with his wife and two children where he is at work on his next Joe Banks novel.

    A strong first effort from promising writer

    Lake Effect tells the story of a Buffalo private investigator, Joe Banks, and his investigation of the carjacking and drowning of the grandchildren of one of the areas largest developers. The writing is solid, and the main character is both likeable and believable. According to the author it is the first of a series featuring Banks and his family, so I am looking forward to more from this new kid on the PI genre block.

    This is an excellent book. They say reading calms you down, well this book didn't do that. The writer keeps you on your toes the whole time. 'Lake Effect' is a very descriptive piece of writing that puts the reader into the plot. I look forward to the next installment. I give this book two thumbs up.
