Moon Underfoot is another good thriller from Thomas & Mercer, who have done the reading public a service by issuing a long string of good to exceptional mysteries and thrillers by authors who aren't yet household names but some day may be.

Moon Underfoot is the follow-up to Cole's debut novel, The Dummy Line. That novel ended with Jake Crosby rescuing his daughter and himself from a gang of vicious backwoods drug runners and in the process killing two of them. But he didn't get their boss, "Moon Pie" Daniels, and now Daniels is coming for him. That's one strain in this novel: how Jake strikes back. But it's only one of a bunch of tangled narratives. In another, three old men and an old woman, after a lifetime of following the straight and narrow, embark on a life of crime, but not to enrich themselves, rather for charity (of sorts). In a third, the Mississippi Drug Task Force makes a beeline on the Gulf Coast drug king, a vicious beast named Tam Nguyen. There's more. Members of a South of the Border drug cartel, the Tennessee Mexicans, chase after a million dollars that's been stolen from them. A woman struggles to free herself from an abusive boyfriend. And "Moon Pie's" half-brother, Levi, wants to break loose from the life of crime that "Moon Pie" has dragged him into.

I like the combination of sudden violence and broad humor that results from throwing all these colorful characters and events into the mixer in this delightful, never-let-up action thriller.

Moon Underfoot follows on from The Dummy Run. I didn't read The Dummy Run but had no problem picking up the plot of Moon Underfoot. Bobby Cole makes a decent job of providing the back story, history, of both his plot and his characters so don't worry too much if you're not reading the books in the proper sequence. You shouldn't have too many difficulties.

I found Moon Underfoot interesting but completely different from what I expected. I expected a straight forward tale of vengeance and retribution. It's nothing like that. This is a complex novel packed with twists, turns, different characters and some of the most eccentric plot lines I've encounered in a crime thriller.

The plot follows Jake Crosby, his wife Morgan and daughter Katy. Jake and Katy were, in the previous novel, put through a terrible experience at the hands of notorious criminal Ethan "Moon Pie" Daniels and were traumatised at the hands of his henchmen. Most of the gang died as a result and Moon Pie is out for revenge. Moon Underfoot picks up at the end of that storyline and things haven't improved greatly for Jake and his family. A mysterious stranger watches the family homes from the shadows and Moon Pie hovers in the background biding his time however; he's now joined forces with a notorious criminal Tam Nguyen and they're planning their biggest ever drug deal.

Into that tense, well written and enjoyable crime romp Bobby Cole introduces a wacky plot line in the form of 68 year old Walter Severson, and a small group of his friends, who Cole transforms from retirees into master criminals. They make Moon Pie's drug deal look small in comparison but; it's Moon Pie they accidentally "annoy".

We are back again with Jake Crosby and his daughter whose "walk in the woods" turned into a terrifying ordeal in the Alabama woods. Crossing a drug-dealing villain 'Moon Pie" and his crew, Jake cannot help but think that their lucky escape was just the start of something. He has done serious damage in "The Dummy Line", to Daniel's (aka Moon Pie) crew and he knows vengeance may be on the horizon.

Of course he is right as this book would not exist if life had proceeded sweetly, although the readers of The Dummy Line were probably as convinced as I, that this was just the beginning. He very soon realises that his adversary has not forgotten his intrustion and the loss he suffered at Jake's hands of his men.

However, Jake is not alone in the plot, He joins forces with a geriatric foursome and the comic side of the "caper" keeps a lighter tone than most going in what would be a real thriller. Not that this detracts in any way from the plot.

Cole had already proven the line between thriller and enjoyable humourous moments but this exploits the humourous side to the best and the end result is an excellent book. Well worth a read of anyones' time. Moon Underfoot

A captivating combination of exciting thriller with entertaining humour makes `Moon Underfoot' a 5-star read. The multi-layered storyline is constructed around the main protagonist, Jake Crosby, from `The Dummy Line': a previous book by Bobby Cole, and though Jake and his family are now threatened by a notorious criminal escaping justice in that first novel, this in no way detracts from `Moon Underfoot' as a compelling and gripping stand alone sequel.

Publicity blurb promises vengeance and retribution between Jake and the criminal but these issues embroil many more. It is additional characters who play leading roles, including a colourful group of 4 aged individuals coming together in retirement and behaving in a Robin Hood manner to carry out robberies aimed at enriching others rather than themselves. Together with their colleagues and a variety of more deviant racketeering villains they become entwined in an assortment of dangerous situations. Horror is managed alongside humour and characterisations are well founded, even if some may take a bit of believing - but this is set aside as various sub-plots rattle along at a hectic pace and readers cannot help but empathize with individuals and the predicaments they face. All is cleverly dovetailed together as author Bobby Cole skilfully uses short chapters and he switches rapidly between different scenarios and characters. In addition to twists and turns being exciting, and the antics of the gang of 4 being almost comic entertainment, `Moon Underfoot' is an elaborate entanglement of law breaking that seems to defy solution - yet the fascinating action packed conclusion neatly ties up all loose ends. It is hard to imagine another sequel, but in any event it is worth looking out for future novels by Bobby Cole.
