Put-in-Bay Author Bob Adamov to Release 3 Novels in 2022
As award-winning, island author Bob Adamov prepares to celebrate his 20th year of writing Put-in-Bay-based, mystery adventure novels on October 19, 2022, he will follow up on his exceptionally-rated Memory Layne, set on Catawba Island, with the release of three novels in 2022.
“My boyhood dream was to write a novel one day and I didn’t realize that dream until I wrote Rainbow’s End, which was released on October 19, 2002 at the Park Hotel. I was stunned by selling 76 books that day as the South Bass Island residents supported my efforts. My dream was to write one book, but as I was encouraged to write another by my readers and the awards started coming in, I thought I’d do one more. I had no idea that I would have written 14 novels by now and have two more in the works,” Adamov commented. “I can’t thank the region enough for the support and encouragement I’ve been given. Thank you.”
His string of island best-sellers in the popular Emerson Moore series includes Rainbow’s End, Pierce the Veil, When Rainbows Walk, Promised Land, The Other Side of Hell, Tan Lines, Sandustee, Zenobia,Missing,Golden Torpedo, Chincoteague Calm, Flight and Assateague Darkplus Memory Layne. His writing style has been compared to bestselling authors Clive Cussler and Tom Clancy.
Sunset Blues is in editing and should be released in the first quarter of 2022. It deals with the rescue of Emerson’s aunt by a team of rascals led by Emerson and Put-in-Bay entertainer Mike “Mad Dog” Adams to whom the book is dedicated. The plot also involves nefarious activities by Russians running London-style taxis in Put-in-Bay and Key West.
White Spider Night
White Spider Night is in development and is scheduled for a release in the second quarter of 2022. It deals with the disappearance of a popular island B&B owner. Did Elke run away from her troubles or was her disappearance a homicide? And what was the motive? Who was responsible? And what about the connection to Middle Bass Island? Suspects were lining up like planes waiting to land at an airport.
In celebration of the 20th anniversary of the release of Rainbow’s End, Adamov’s first novel is being rewritten with new scenes and released as a collector’s edition on October 19th, 2022. The original sold over 10,000 copies and is currently out of print.
