Put-in-Bay novelist Bob Adamov holds book signings

Award-winning Put-in-Bay novelist Bob Adamov will be signing copies of his seventh novel, Sandustee, in his Put-in-Bay based mystery adventure series at the following locations and times on Sunday, June 30th:

  • Twisted Sisters Gallery in Marblehead  10–11:30 a.m.
  • Joseph Wise Fine Clocks in Lakeside    12–1 p.m.
  • Mon Ami Restaurant and Winery2-5 p.m.

Sandustee continues the popular Emerson Moore series and Adamov’s string of island best sellers which include Rainbow’s End, Pierce the Veil, When Rainbows Walk, Promised Land, The Other Side of Hell and Tan Lines. Adamov’s writing style has been compared to Clive Cussler and Tom Clancy.  


Sandustee is a worldwide chase for clues to finding a lost Biblical scroll, the Nazarene's Code, which gives the holder the power to control nations. Running through the novel is a thread which links Osama Bin Laden to Jesus and the twelve disciples to Abraham Lincoln to Lincoln's assassination to Booth's escape to Dr. Samuel Mudd's house to Mudd's imprisonment in the Dry Tortugas. The thread is the Legend of 13; words with thirteen letters have stunning implications on the plotline.

This action-packed novel is filled with murder, cross and double-cross, scuba action, a touch of Knights Templar, Masonic symbolism, and political intrigue in D.C. and the world intelligence community. Washington Post investigative reporter Emerson Moore is accompanied by a beautiful blonde German antiquities researcher, Katrine Bieber, as they try to stay one step ahead of the shadowy Russian Karapashev in finding and interpreting the clues. Moore is aided by former NSA cybercode breaker Steve Nicholas and retired German BND spymaster Andreas Kalker. 

From scuba diving in the Red Sea to the allure of Bodrum, Turkey, Moore and Bieber chase clues in Germany, the island of Rhodes, London, Key West, the Dry Tortugas, New Orleans, the Washington, D.C. area, and Ohio’s Huron, Sandusky and Put-in-Bay. Death is close on their heels.  


Adamov was the featured author at the 2006 Ernest Hemingway Literary Festival in Key West. He was recently named Writer of the Year for 2010 in regional competition sponsored by the University of Akron’s Wayne College. His first novel was a 2003 runner-up as the top fiction novel in the Great Lakes (won by Pulitzer Prize winner, Middlesex.) All of his novels were rated 5 Stars by the Midwest Book Review and named as top novels in northeast Ohio by the Akron Beacon Journal. His novels have won awards at the Hollywood Book Festival, London Book Festival, New York Book Festival and the Indie Awards. 

“Bob Adamov is a superb craftsman of hanging-on-the-edge-of-your-seat mystery adventures…”-Midwest Book Review


Hollywood producer Jerry Bruckheimer’s staff compared Adamov’s writing style to Clive Cussler and Tom Clancy. Cussler has become a fan of Adamov’s, had him speak at his October 2008 and September 2010 conventions and endorsed his novel, The Other Side of Hell. Adamov will be presenting at the 2013 convention in October.

 A screenplay has been prepared on the first novel, Rainbow’s End, at the request of Dominic Sena, director of Kalifornia, Gone in Sixty Seconds, Swordfish, Whiteout and Season of the Witch. The screenplay is currently being revised. A screenplay is under development on The Other Side of Hell while the completed Tan Lines screenplay is under review.
