Big Apple Murders by Bob Moats

An invitation to speak at a big book convention in New York City entices Jim to cross the country and appear. He and Penny, along with Buck, travel to the Big Apple and they fall into a murder of one of the authors promoting his books. It's not the only murder, Jim's curse seems to be working over-time and there is a second author murdered. Jim is pulled into the crimes along with an old acquaintance from his last trip to the city, Captain Lou Brege, and finds more than what he expected. Are the murders being committed by a serial killer called the Hangman? Or are the murders being set-up by Jim's own publisher? Jim, along with Buck and a mob wise-guy hunt down killer as Penny backs them up with her handy .38 Smith & Wesson. The police and the mob join forces to bring justice to the convention before Jim gives his speech, but will the killer get to Jim before he can perform?

About 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.

Not as good as some of the others. It's as if the plots are beginning to repeat themselves from earlier books. I found this one rather dull. I'm tired of hearing about Penney's shopping trips. The books seem to be getting shorter in length and more expensive as the series goes on. As with all the others, this one still had some editing errors.

Jim, Penny, and Buck are back again for a good time in New York City. As usual with Jim, they land in the middle of a murder. When you think you know who is behind the murders, Bob throws a plot twist at you, and you are back to square one. I have read every one of Bob Moats books, and each one is a true winner. He draws you in with his characters, with their quirks and everyday problems. It is so nice to read about characters who are older but with a great lust for life. Give yourself a great gift and read Bob's books.

Bob Moats can weave a story that keeps you thoroughly entertained and unwilling to put the book down. His characters are believable, the plot plausible and it leaves the reader looking forward to the next adventure. Thank you, Bob, for your most enjoyable myriad motley mob of mostly mature members in your made-up menagerie of cast Members!
