CRIME THRILLERS


Bob’s novels are divided into The Richard Geist Trilogy: Dicky, Richard, and IThe Signing – and The Triumvirate.

Bob’s four-book Justin Barnes series is comprised of The AuthorThe TeacherKnots – and The Good Samaritans.

NOTE: Each book in the trilogy and four-book series may be read independently of one another, but for a more enjoyable rendering, it is especially rewarding to follow the author in chronological order.

Trace Evidence is a novel inspired by the Robert Shulman serial killer trial here in Riverhead. Bob spent every day for fifteen months at the murderer’s trial.

Battered is a novel inspired by the trial of an abused woman (physically abused for twenty years) who murdered her husband. Bob corresponded with the woman while she was in prison for years before her release in 2015.

Professional reviewers and readers (like you) have compared Bob’s works to James Patterson, Jeffery Deaver, David Baldacci, John Grisham, and Thomas Harris.
