About Bob Moats

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.

Book titles: Classmate Murders; Vegas Showgirl Murders; Dominatrix Murders; Mistress Murders; Bridezilla Murders; Magic Murders; Strip Club Murders and Made-for-TV Murders.

Review by: Nora Lee on Aug. 10, 2014 :
This needs editing to clean up the sentence structure. The characters are likable, but all cops are presented as inept idiots. The story falls flat with the cop's ineptitude as the main reason for the bad guy to go unchecked. A 4.0 rating is being generous.

Appreciate a free book to read and find a new author. This series looks great and I will be buying the next ones. Good on the older protagonists -- they've been around the bend and make a better story.

Well, I'm hooked Mr. Moats!! I stumbled across "Classmate Murders" last week and have since read the first 4 "Murder" books. Such amazing stories! The recurring characters are so well rounded; Richards is funny, smart and likeable, Buck reminds me of Hulk Hogan, Penny and Lt. Trapper adds flavor to your books. I love the comedic tones in these stories and often have to pause reading as I'm laughing. The friendships and even romance are heartwarming. These are fast paced murder/mystery/suspense/humor books and are frigging addictive. Brilliant work Bob.... Ronnie Mercer

Classmate Murders by Bob Moats
He's sixty years old, unemployed, and living with his parents. Anything would be better than that, right?

Mr. Moats shared a free copy of this ebook with me (thank you). He pointed out it was his first book and, as such, might not be of the same quality of writing as his later books. I was perfectly happy with this one, so I'm sure I'd enjoy reading the others he's written also.

I'm the same age and probably in the same shape as Jim Richards, but at least I have my own home and my own business. He soon finds himself a new line of work, but not without some pain...

He's amazed to see a phone call from one of his classmates from 40 years ago. He hasn't talked to her since school, and he was a bit in love with her then. He calls to see why she thinks someone is trying to kill her and he ends up talking to a cop. Someone was successful in their murder attempt...

This story is a bit off the wall, and that's what makes it such fun to read. He decides he's going to investigate the murder. Especially after another classmate gets murdered. Who's killing them and why? Good thing he has a big biker buddy for a friend because he gets in lots of trouble along the way.

The story is plausible, fun to read, and the murderer is not obvious.

If you like a fun mystery story that moves fast, this is a good one for you to read. The best part? It's free now on Smashwords. Go get a copy!

And if you want more, here's a list of his books:

Though murder novels weren't my usual fare, once I started on Classmate Murders, I quickly found myself enjoying all of Bob Moats books. Well written, engaging, sweet and scary, they are must reads for anyone who loves a great mystery.
Knowing how much work is put into each paperback copy of the novels makes them that much more impressive. Be sure to check out Mr. Moats website to see how he does it!
