Open Letter from Bob Moats

On April 4th, 2009, I wrote the first paragraph to my first book, Classmate Murders. I had no idea how this journey of writing books would go. I'm now up to 32 of that series, five in the Fatal series, and the new Doyle, P.I. series, and I can't seem to stop. The best aspects about my writing are the people who have sent me unsolicited email and online comments about how much they enjoy my books and even bought all of them to read. It honestly humbles me when I read the nice things they say about my characters. I put a lot of heart into my book characters and they are real to me. I believe they are my family and so are all the fans of the books. They share the same feelings I have for Jim and Penny and the gang. I hope the next number of years, if I live, will be as good as the last have been. Thank you from my heart to all the people who have read and enjoyed my books, Bob.

Art Doyle, private eye, having solved his first case after opening up his business, is now hot after a serial killer. Along with his partner, Oscar Drew, they have to keep ahead of the killer since he's been dropping bodies at Doyle's cabin in the woods. What is the reason the killer is targeting Doyle to receive the bodies is still to be determined and the case takes Doyle and Oscar to the woods and then down to the back streets of Detroit. Is the killer someone from Doyle's past who he did wrong? While Doyle works to catch the killer, he's being a little distracted by women, coming and going in his life. Will the hot female bartender end up dead or in Doyle's bed? Plenty of chases involving cops, street gangs, and an explosive ending that changes everything.

Bob Moats
Writer of Murder Novels

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. He also wrote the short fantasy novella "Crystal Prison of Kyr" and is a published playwright with his three act comedy "Happily Ever After".

Moats became one of the victims of unemployment early 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".

What followed was a series of thirty-two murder novels starting with "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 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 fellow 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; strip clubs and an ocean cruise. Previews and comments are available on this site.

Book titles in order: Classmate Murders, Vegas Showgirl Murders, Dominatrix Murders, Mistress Murders, Bridezilla Murders, Magic Murders, Strip Club Murders, Made-for-TV Murders, Mystery Cruise Murders, Talk Show Murders, Sin City Murders, Black Widow Murders, Vegas Vigilante Murders, Area 51 Murders, Mortuary Murders, Hypnotic Murders, Sunshine State Murders, Blue Suede Murders, Honky Tonk Murders, Dark Carnival Murders, Lipstick Murders, Pasta Murders, Talent Show Murders, Shyster Murders, Campground Murders, Network Murders, Reunion Murders, Big Apple Murders, Kennel Murders, Trick or Treat Murders, Santa Murders, and WiseGuy Murders. READ about Jim Richards as a young man in the novella - Marriage Can Be Murder.

The Fatal Series - Fatal Rejection * Fatal Departure * Fatal Romance * Fatal Outbreak * Fatal Abduction

New! The Doyle, P.I. series - Doyle's Law * Doyle's Justice and coming soon, Doyle's Quest.
