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.

Awesome characters and plot.

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 normally like the "murder" books but the editing on this one was really awful.

Your emotions will be all over the place. Should I pull for the vigilante? Suspense to the end with a touch of good old fashion goodness... The author has Jim, our hero, reflect on some thought provoking questions. GOOD JOB!

Looks like Bob Moats got some help with editing on this one. Notation regarding the book being re-edited in 2013. It was really a pleasure to be able to read one of his stories without running into some type of typo, improperly constructed sentence, missing words, etc. on every other page. it was wonderful to be able to relax and enjoy the story. Only found 3 true editing errors in this one. The story was good and easy to follow with a bit of a twist at the end. Now that he has some editing help, I plan to continue with the series.
