The Pot Thief Who Studied Ptolemy                               

Winner (Kindle version) “Eppie” as best e-book mystery of the year

First series ever to win two “Eppies” in a row

In the second book in the series, Hubert Schuze' larceny is for a good cause. He wants to recover sacred pots stolen from San Roque, a mysterious New Mexico pueblo closed to outsiders. An easy task for Hubert Schuze, pot digger. Except these pots are not under the ground – they're 150 feet above it in the apartment of the retired head of the University of New Mexico anthropology program, the very man who expelled him from school. The Department Head claimed to be repatriating the pots to the San Roque, but another retired professor suspects otherwise. A visit to San Roque inspires Hubie to find and return the pots.  Hubie's intuitive deductive skills lead to a perfect plan which is thwarted when he encounters the beautiful Stella and he is arrested for murder. Things don’t look good—he was in the room where the body was found, everyone heard the shot, and he came out with blood on his hands. Hubie struggles to stay one step ahead of building security, one step behind Stella, and one step away from a long fall down a garbage chute. During his repeated ineffectual attempts to break into the apartment where the cache of sacred pots resides, Hubie is guided by Ptolemy's wisdom. What better place than the ebony New Mexico desert sky to demonstrate the optical illusion of retrograde motion, like a circle in a spiral?
