Shyster Murders by Bob Moats

A shyster is someone who acts in a disreputable, unethical, or unscrupulous way, especially in the practice of law or politics. Jim Richards wasn't fond of either lawyers or politicians. That's what Jim thought about Grisler as he sat in the courtroom, watching the shyster in a divorce case. Alphonse Grisler was a lowlife lawyer in Las Vegas. One day Grisler comes to Jim with a problem, someone wants to murder him. Jim doesn't like the shark, but agrees to take his case. What followed was more murder attempts on Grisler, then all hell breaks loose. Shyster lawyers are dropping dead around Sin City. Deacon is on his own trying to solve the case with Jim, since Lynn went into the hospital to finally have their baby, a beautiful girl. This adds to Deacon's stress as Jim tries to help track the killer down. Who is behind the attempts to murder lawyers and even a judge, and why? In this 24th Jim Richards Murder Novel.

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 seven 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.

Once again, this book was fairly well edited compared to his earlier books. Only a few typos, missing or incorrect usage of words and verb tense. I thought this story was a bit muddled compared with some of the others. Just didn't seem as well organized. Because of all the characters in his stories, Mr. Moats had more than one crime being investigated at the same time. It just got a bit jumbled in places. Overall, not bad.

Who wouldn't want to read this story? Bad lawyers, or shysters, give good lawyers a bad name. Bob does a wonderful job of keeping me glued to his books, I read his last three books in five days! Can't wait for the next one!
