Growing up, my reading time was divided between my love for science fiction (Robert Heinlein, Poul Anderson, Issac Asimov), comic books (Superman, Flash, Fantastic Four) and my mother's detective novels (Mickey Spillane, Rex Stout). Finally, the best of all my worlds have come together with Tom Andry's novel, Bob Moore: No Hero. Tom has merged what would be considered incompatible genres into a strong read and a great first effort. Yes, there are some cliches, but they add flavor and enhance the connections to the genres he has melded together. Characters and plot are well developed and entertaining, and the story moves along at a good pace. The main protagonists are all structured to move forward through a possible series of novels. I do know that Bob 2 (as Tom calls it) is well underway, and I for one am eagerly awaiting its release. This book has singlehandedly caused me to purchase both a dedicated e-book reader and a tablet. I'd like to thank Tom for giving me new reasons to buy geeky tech toys (not like I need reasons).
