Reed Farrel Coleman is the youngest of three boys and was raised in Sheepshead County. One day while walking from school, he had a shot and later on, saw a man lying flat on the ground, with a lethal wound on his stomach. This was the point in his life when he realized that people do get hurt. Upon joining high school, Coleman ventured into writing. Throughout his years, Coleman has worked at different jobs such as a car lease agent, baby food sales, restaurants as a cook and finally delivering home cooking oil. While attending The New School, Coleman met his wife to be Rosanne. Currently, they have two children, Dylan and Kaitlyn. Coleman never had at one point considered taking writing as a full-time career, until one day when he was attending a detective fiction class.

Walking the Perfect Square: This is the first book in the Moe Pager book series. In this installment, Coleman introduces the reader to Moe Prager, an ex-cop, who is waiting to call his daughter during her 18th birthday. In the middle of an exceedingly ugly family meltdown, Moe Prager is exceedingly desperate to find a viable way to come to terms with what made his happy family implode. However, as he is waiting, Moe Pager receives a call, which will not only solve a case, which has continuously haunted him and his wife but will also supply him with the glue that will be used to patch up his family. On December 8th, one Patrick Maloney, who is a purportedly popular college student decides to walk out from a Manhattan nightspot and into oblivion. It is no wonder that Patrick Maloney’s sudden disappearance registers on the radar screen.

However, it does not take long before the son of Sam strikes, and Elvis is pronounced dead. Is is the BeeGees vs. the Sex Pistols, the Dirt Lounge and Studio 54. Moe Pager is an ex-cop who was forced into early retirement due to an injury that he sustained while serving in the police force. Despite the fact that Patrick Malone had disappeared many years ago, Moe Pager had not noticed any of this. However, when Prager ex-partner asks for an offer to work on the new case, Moe Prager full of doubt over his career, agrees to the deal. With that being said, Walking the Perfect Square is a great introduction to a highly entertaining series. It is clear to see why Coleman is the recipient of numerous awards, especially in the Moe Pager book series.
