More About This Book

Overview

That Jolly old head elf from the North Pole is getting ready to be a naughty boy. He has murder on his mind. Luckily it's not the real Santa Claus, but a person with a motive to murder. Las Vegas Homicide Detective Deacon DeAngelo goes after a street preacher who loves to play Santa for the homeless shelters. Evidence ties this Santa to the murder of a mob figure and now Will Trapper is called on to prove his Santa friend didn't do it. Trapper manages to talk Jim Richards into helping to find the real killer while they hide the fake Santa which doesn't make Deacon happy. He threatens them to find the real killer or go to jail for obstruction of justice. It's like the twelve days of Christmas around the preacher's church with police, mob figures, a fortune in hidden money and one scheming black widow female who traps the Santa into marriage to get at his wealth since he owns a choice property that every one wants for building casinos on. It's a Vegas Christmas in this 31st book of the Jim Richards series.

    Highly recommended

    In the true fashion of Mr. Moats writing, the book is really entertaining and keeps you reading it until you're done. It made me get to sleep MUCH later than planned, as his books usually do. It was also true to all of his characters personalities, which can really keep you amused. My congratulations to Bob on another good book. His fans should also start to read his "Fatal" series which takes you in similar journeys with a different set of characters.

    When Christmas Turns Deadly. Mystery author/private investigator

    When Christmas Turns Deadly. Mystery author/private investigator Jim Richards is asked by one of the detectives in the agency he owns to look into death threats being received by a local mall Santa and eccentric preacher Harold Renford. He’s reluctant, but finally convinced to do it. What looked like a relatively routine surveillance operation turns ugly and complicated when a Vegas mobster is gunned down in a local hotel by a man dressed in a Santa costume, and the finger of suspicion is pointed at Renford.
    In Santa Murders, the 31st Jim Richards’ family of mysteries by Bob Moats, you’re taken on a roller coaster ride of thrills and suspense as Richards finds himself caught up in mob machinations, greedy business deals, and marital infidelities. I’m tempted to say that Moats writes like Robert B. Parker, but that’s not fair to either, as both have singularly unique styles. No, Bob Moats writes like, well, Bob Moats – which is to say, extremely well.
    I received a free review copy of Moat’s latest Richards family mystery offering, and I dearly hope that he’ll decide to end the series on an even number, rather than stop at 31.

    Another Hit

    The 31st entry in the Jim Richards series is as great as the previous 30. Bob is a master of twists and turns. His "Family" of quirky characters are as familar to us as our owm families. He has taught us to really care about them and their lives. Keep writing Bob, we love your books!
