Book Title: Fatal Rejection
Author: Bob Moats
Publisher: Magic 1 Productions
Reviewed by Michele Tater For The Couch Tater Review

A rejection is nothing more than a necessary step in the pursuit of success. ~Bo Bennett

Derek Harcourt is an author of a book that tells of the horrible crimes committed by a killer known as the NY Slasher. Liking the notoriety of the first book, Derek decides to write another one as he walks in the footsteps of the Slasher. As he moves from state to state he writes chapters that are sent to his editor Sarah Keller to edit and where his journey will end. As Derek travels from the East coast to the West coast, it seems that there are killings being committed with a eerie similarity to the murders that the NY Slasher was known for. The disappearance of this murderer many years ago may have just been a break for him and now he is back.

This book made me say “What?” “Really?” “No Way!” quite a few times. It puts the reader in the middle of a cat and mouse game where you are not sure who the cat and mouse are. With an unusual and unpredictable plot the reader must keep reading. I would dare to call it a first rate thriller from an author that has found another way to pleasantly shock me. Especially with the mentioning of Buffalo, New York, which I have lived in at one time, very cool. Looking for a good mystery to pass the time, this one will not disappoint. The reader is rewarded with the greatest of endings. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

From the East coast to the West coast the NY Slasher carved his murderous spree on thirty women, and then just disappeared. Derek Harcourt wrote about the Slasher's crimes in his first book. Now writing a second book, Harcourt has ulterior motives for this novel and is following the Slasher's journey all the way from New York to Washington state. Sarah Keller is Harcourt's editor and the unsuspecting victim of horrible crimes in her past and maybe her future. Will there be more murders when Harcourt and Keller finally meet? Could an author hate an editor so much that he would want to murder her? A new thriller about stalking a victim across the country and a serial killer bent on making his last murder his ultimate goal, the person he hates the most. This is not part of the Jim Richards series books by Bob Moats, this is an all new book about an author, editors and serial murders. Bob Moats is the author of 20 novels about a senior citizen sleuth named Jim Richards. He wrote the short fantasy novella "Crystal Prison of Kyr" and is a published playwright with his three act comedy "Happily Ever After". This book takes him to a new genre, serial killings and it views from two different perspectives, the killer and the victim. ~~*~~ Advanced reviews: Bob Moats, the author of over 20 continuous "Murder" books, outdid himself in "Fatal Rejection." This fiction book is in a word, "intense". Derek Harcourt has written and had published a true crime book about the NY Slasher, a serial killer who was never caught. Before having his book published, he was rejected many times by publishing companies. Enter, Sarah Keller, an editor of a major publishing company in New York whose husband was murdered several months ago. She decided to start over and moved across country to Washington state. But, Harcourt has other plans for Sarah and commences to drive out to her. The book is full of heart stopping suspense with likeable characters and at times a little humor. Will Sarah find happiness away from her haunted past, or will her refusal letter to publish a mad man's book be a Fatal Rejection? I would give this book 5 stars. Reviewed by Ronnie Mercer Author of "Unsolved Serial Killers - True Crimes" and "Women who Kill - True Crimes" ---- Bob Moats once again amazes me with his brilliant storytelling ability. In "Fatal Rejection", he writes from the point of view of not only the victim but the murderer as well and he was able to pull it off wonderfully. The parts of the story told through the eyes of the victim, Sarah, were soft and light with a hint of sadness while the parts told through the murderer's eyes, Derek, were brash and hard. It was easy to get caught up in the characters. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and found it difficult to put down. Great ending! Boni J. Rychener ---- All finished. I enjoyed it. I liked that the ending was out of the blue as well. Very enjoyable and the ending was a good twist. David Wilkinson, from England.… (more)
