Editorial Reviews

Review

“Orenduff successfully combines humor and homicide in his superb eighth Pot Thief whodunit. . . . Fans of campus satires will enjoy how Orenduff skewers academic politics and political correctness in the service of a fair-play plot.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

The Pot Thief Who Studied Edward Abbey is superb, a funny, totally puzzling mystery studded with the kind of delectable arcane knowledge Orenduff always brings to this series. I’ve loved every one of the Pot Thief books and this is the best yet.” —Timothy Hallinan, author of Fields Where They Lay: A Junior Bender Mystery

Praise for the Pot Thief Mysteries
“Readers who haven’t made Hubie’s acquaintance should be encouraged to do so. [A] nice mix of comedy and mystery.” —
Booklist on The Pot Thief Who Studied Georgia O’Keeffe
 
“Sprinkled with a cast of characters, word play and word games . . . dealing with New Mexico history and geography. Detours spin off into other detours, which . . . are part of the lightheartedness of the story.” —
Albuquerque Journal on The Pot Thief Who Studied Georgia O’Keeffe
 
“The newest installment in J. Michael Orenduff’s smartly funny series is filled with wild situations, clever word play, and a good helping of fast-paced action. I loved every twist and pun.” —Anne Hillerman,
New York Times–bestselling author of Spider Woman’s Daughter, on The Pot Thief Who Studied Georgia O’Keeffe
 
“Funny at a very high intellectual level and deliciously delightful.” —
The Baltimore Sun on The Pot Thief Who Studied Escoffier
 
“The perfect fusion of murder, mayhem and margaritas.” —
El Paso Times on The Pot Thief Who Studied Einstein

About the Author

J. Michael Orenduff grew up in a house so close to the Rio Grande that he could Frisbee a tortilla into Mexico from his backyard. While studying for an MA at the University of New Mexico, he worked during the summer as a volunteer teacher at one of the nearby pueblos. After receiving a PhD from Tulane University, he became a professor. He went on to serve as president of New Mexico State University.

Orenduff took early retirement from higher education to write his award-winning Pot Thief murder mysteries, which combine archaeology and philosophy with humor and mystery. Among the author’s many accolades are the Lefty Award for best humorous mystery, the Epic Award for best mystery or suspense ebook, and the New Mexico Book Award for best mystery or suspense fiction. His books have been described by the
 Baltimore Sun as “funny at a very high intellectual level” and “deliciously delightful,” and by the El Paso Times as “the perfect fusion of murder, mayhem and margaritas.”
