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 a year ago, 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 twenty-one 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.

Jim and his crime fighters, continue in the other books, traveling to Las Vegas twice, back to Detroit and out to New York to solve murders involving dominatrix; mistresses; Bridezillas; magic and strip clubs.

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!

Excellent. The best one. The best twist right to the end.

The plot was fairly good although I was able to figure out who the murderer was about half way through the book. There were more editing and grammar errors in this one than the last book. However, not as bad as his earlier books. Once again, Bob really needs to do some research before putting things into print. The book takes place after the year 2000 and he has one of his characters singing at the Silver Slipper which closed in 1988. This type of error occurs throughout his Jim Richards series. Authors should be well versed on what they are writing about. I've said it before and I'll say it again, if his books were free, one couldn't complain, However, if an author charges for his works, they should be correct in content, spelling and grammar.

I'm not sure what's worse, the authors depiction of pregnant women, the editing of this book or the fact that the story is so over the top unbelievable. Ugh.
