A Different Kind of Killer  by Bob Cook

 
Description: 
This is a compilation of stories that centers loosely around the theme of men who would be boys, that conflicting combination of behaviors that often mystifies both significant others and themselves. Enter the secret world of close friends free of wives and children, free to their own devices to play or to take up more serious matters.

Joe was being stalked by a different kind of killer, but with the help of long-life friends, he formulated a plan to end the threat. At the poker table, Joe dropped a bomb right in the middle of the cards and chips, which would prove to test him and his buddies beyond their imagination. Their plans would take them into Gulf Coast casinos, cross the open waters of Escambia Bay, into the swamps of Louisiana, and on through rugged western country to meet the monster head on. But, as they struggle together, they came up with a different sort of solution.

Some People Need Killing by Bob Cook

 
Description: 
Working out of Pensacola, Florida, Beth Jacoby, a child abuse and neglect investigator, and her coworkers fly about town in and out of the living rooms of folks accused of hurting children. Her path into the private domains of rich and poor alike crosses that of her once teen lover, Jack, a California cool cop and his partner, a thunderous loose cannon who dearly loves the war on crime. Beth begins to realize that she and the homicide detectives are intertwined in the web of a particularly violent marauder who is hunting down salacious creeps who prey on children. Beth and the lawmen are tossed about like crash dummies as they careen down a twisted trail leading to a startling collision of good vs. evil.

This is a work of fiction and a little over the top to keep the pages turning.  Both male and female adults who are looking for a good read, a rollicking thriller laced with serious social issues, cops, murder, and sex should enjoy this book.  But, I sincerely hope that the reader comes away with a better appreciation for these hard working people and the extremely important job they do out there every day to help protect children.

Some Boys Never Become Men by Bob Cook

 
Description: 
Working out of Pensacola, Florida, Beth Jacoby, a child abuse and neglect investigator, and her coworkers fly about town in and out of the living rooms of folks accused of hurting children. Her path into the private domains of rich and poor alike crosses that of her once teen lover, Jack, a California cool cop and his partner, a thunderous loose cannon who dearly loves the war on crime. Beth begins to realize that she and the homicide detectives are intertwined in the web of a particularly violent marauder who is hunting down salacious creeps who prey on children. Beth and the lawmen are tossed about like crash dummies as they careen down a twisted trail leading to a startling collision of good vs. evil.

NOTE: This work is a sequel to Some People Need Killing. It is recommended that it be read first although it is not necessary as this sequel does stand alone as a complete story.

This book will follow the same group of characters, cops and social workers. Once more they end up working together as they cross paths on the trail of creeps that define their masculinity with abuse and exploitation of women and children.

Ill Prepared
 by Bob Cook

 
Description: 
In 1967 Rob Hanks, a recent college grad, accepts a counselor position in an isolated work camp for serious delinquent offenders. Within a few days he is personally challenged like he had never been before, as there was little in college that had prepared him for direct, in-your-face, confrontation. Rob learns that he is replacing another guy who had been broken down both physically and mentally by thugs who truly enjoyed watching the man cry. Luckily he is partnered with Jack, a cross eyed, ex-paratrooper, who knows the ropes. Together they wade into the circus, dealing with suicide, pheasants, sex, trout, violence and bears. As Rob struggles to find his footing, he takes a few missteps along the way which threaten his marriage and his traditional values.
