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.

    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.

    Another good one!

    I enjoyed this novel as I do the rest of this series. It was just pretty obvious to me when the part about the mistaken identity came into play. Jim gives me hope about baby boomers still being "active" in the bedroom!!! Keep up this story line but get a proof reader. I"ll volunteer.

    Ugh

    I have read all of the "murder" books. They're a fast, light read. This was my least favorite. The typos were wince inducing. The thing about the books that I don't like is that the character (and maybe the author) are outdated and it really comes through in this book. Jim says things in this book that makes him sound older than he is. The author makes Jim come across as 80 more than 60 but then he throws in sex to make the book edgy. Super disappointed.
