Page-turning Thriller With Just the Right Amount of Humor
By J. Murray
Bobby Cole’s “Moon Underfoot” (Thomas &Mercer 2012) is a light-hearted crime novel with lots of drama always softened by quirky characters, unbelievable circumstances, and humorous asides. Tom Clancy won’t worry about the competition, but readers who want a page-turning story that keeps them off the edge of their chair and and up at night until the last page will be thrilled with this story.
It starts as a typical mystery/thriller: Jake Crosby and his daughter Katie narrowly escaped death at the hands of an all-round bad guy named Ethan ‘Moon Pie’ Daniels–Moon Pie to his friends. To survive, he had to kill two friends of Moon Pie’s, an action Jake fears will demand retribution. After a year, he begins to believe this part of his life is in his rear view mirror, strange things start happening that make it clear Moon Pie has neither forgiven nor forgotten. Just as the drama ratchets up, Cole throws in the secondary plot line: A geriatric foursome rob a Kroger grocery story to get money they can give to those who need it. It seemed so easy, they try a jewelry store, but this time, the owner is Moon Pie and the stolen money belongs to a drug kingpin. Moon Pie isn’t going to use a court of law to get his money back.
Cole shows the seeds of becoming an excellent writer. His characters are appealing and likeable. His plot is quick-moving and twisty enough to keep readers guessing. His sense of humor will be the voice that brings readers back to his books time and time again. I can’t wait for him to release his next.

A little rough around the edges
By A. Reader
This is a promising entry for his second novel. Its a little rough from a literary perspective. The characters arent fleshed out like you’d hope for, and the story suffers from a pacing issue at points. More than once I was left feeling a little disoriented at some of the switching story lines. And its pretty straightforward, no real surprises. Also fair warning, there are some things that happen in this story that you’ll just shake your head at. Whether that will make it more or less believable to the reader depends on the type of fiction you enjoy. For instance, at one point a minor character that a task force has been hunting for months gets out of jail by switching prison jumpsuits…
All that being said though by the end I was rooting for Jake and his family. The story was engaging, even without having read the first book. Also while I had issues with the jumping around of the story, it all gets tied together nicely at the end. As a reader you get a pay off for having stuck with it. But at the end of the day the story was just enjoyable. And the hero has a nice everyman quality about him. No background in the CIA, no past in JSOC, just a guy who loves his family and likes to hunt. (oddly theres not much hunting in the book.)
This book wont win any awards, but its a nice fun no thought read.
