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".

Deacon comes in to investigate and Jim discovers the victim is a cousin of one of his friends. Why was the man murdered and what did the warning that was left mean. The mob is suddenly everywhere as a search for one man starts rolling and more bodies are found.

Pretty good. This was very well edited unlike the earlier books in the series. It was very short and more like a novella than a novel. Only 79 pages of actual text and the spacing between paragraphs was doubled and tripled what it should be. Also, between chapters, there were some spaces that were half of a page. This really made the book look longer than it actually was. This is a trend I've seen in the last few books. Seems like the books in this series are getting shorter and costing more. Still like the characters and plan to read the rest of the series.
Another great addition to the Jim and Penny Richards saga. Highly recomend this series by Bob Moats.
Another great book from Bob about the adventures of Jim Richards and friends! If you haven't read his books you're missing an exciting ride. Start with Classmate Murders and begin an interesting journey
