    Review THE POT THIEF WHO STUDIED PTOLEMYTHE POT THIEF Series by J Michael Orenduff is delightful warm hearted, full characterized, humorous mystery mystery with heart Protagonist Hubert Schuze pronounced shoes is The Feckless Hero indeed but he s a sweet guy with a heart of integrity, and a spiritual nature exemplified in his connection to ancient potters, and to the mysteries of the Universe I call him feckless because he frequently is victimized by others cold hearted As a graduate student at the University of New Mexico in Anthropology and Archaeology, he bested three professors by uncovering pots outside the prescribed dig, and for his intuition, was expelled He is considered a pot thief because of a Federal law with which he disagrees barring digging on public land Also, he tends to fall into situations where he is framed for murder Through it all, Hubie remains the proverbial good guy and dedicated friend.

    After reading this novel, by J Michael Orenduff, I think Ptolemy would have been well served studying The Pot Thief I truly enjoy the adult discussions that Hubie and Susannah and others indulge in All while enjoying those luscious sounding Margaritas.This go round Hubie gets involved in a murder while trying to support Susannah s love life and also restoring, to their rightful owners, some ancient tribal pottery Although Hubie is low tech, he grasps the essentials of technology to find creative methods to achieve his ends.The setting is Old Town Albuquerque, New Mexico It makes you want to head to your travel agency and book tickets now Hubie makes it so familiar that you feel you could exit off a trolley and find yourself at home without a tourist map The truth is I just about like every aspect of this series Please treat yourself to this intelligent, fun loving, fast paced, yet peaceful series Hubie needs our help or not

    The follow up to the Pot Thief Who Studied Pythagoras is just as good if not better Hubert Schuze is up to old tricks acquiring pots I won t say stealing, because you can only steal something if it actually belongs to the person you are taking it from At least, that s how Hubert looks at it Hubert has a difficult time even locating these particular pots, and in the meantime meets a hot woman, does a little B E, and gets accused of a murder How s that for a few day s work I don t want to give away too much of the plot, so I ll end by saying Orenduff s Pot Thief series is a must read He tells a compelling story, weaving his words in such a way they should be used as an example for all writers on how to show not tell, and if you don t laugh out loud at Hubert s antics and some of the positions he finds himself in, you either have no sense of humor or you re already dead This is a great story by a great writer.

    This is a great series for people who appreciate quirky characters, like to learn about new things they knew little or nothing about, and want a good mystery to read.

    The pot thief returns as he hunts for pots stolen from the San Roque pueblo This sopho effort was entertaining, and once again I have to say I love the characters J Michael Orenduff has created Hubert Schuze is a wonderful protagonist, who works things out after he is once again accused of murder I like the ending, which was very Agatha Christie like, in which Schuze gathers law enforcement, suspects and many others who have taken part in the investigation and reveals whodunit it I am looking forward to the next book in this series.

    Hubie and Susanna are back in this 2nd book in the wonderful Pot Thief mysteries Hubie is a brilliant man who was kicked out of the University of New Mexico when he strayed from an archeology dig and found some artifacts on his own He previously had earned a degree in business and became an accountant which he hated which is why he returned to school for a master s degree in anthropology and archeology He eventually learned everything he could about Native American pottery, both ancient and modern By the time the story begins he owns a pottery shop in Old Town, Albuquerque, where he sells pots by day and digs them up by the light of the moon He sells the pottery, including some classic pieces he has reproduced, to discriminating collectors as well as tourists At 5 00 pm he meets his good friend Susanna for margaritas and intelligent conversation That is all the back story that one needs to appreciate this series.In this mystery Hubie is asked to recover a set of ancient pots belonging to the secretive San Roche Pueblo The pots were taken from the UNM Museum ostensibly to be deaccessioned and returned to the Native American owners It appears that a retired professor has taken them probably to his 11th floor loft apartment in a heavily secured apartment building When that professor is found in his apartment shot to death, Hubie is accused of the murder His attempts to access the building to find the pots and his subsequent efforts to prove his innocence of the murder are intriguing, ingenious and also humorous as all are parts of Hubie s M.O An underlying theme in this series is Hubie s love of learning In this book he ruminates on Ptolomy s and Kepler s theories of star movements as he watches the skies with his telescopes and in discussions with his best friend Susanna over Margaritas I particularly enjoy and learn something from Hubie s intellectual musings As this is part of a three volume set of Pot Thief Mysteries, I am starting the next one right now

    I am very much enjoying this series set in Albuquerque, NM.Hubie Schuze is a former pot hunter in the Indian Country southwest Former, because the American government has made pot hunting illegal, so now he is a pot thief.Orenduff is obviously a fan of Lawrence Block s Burglar books He mentions them in these mysteries This series is intentionally very similar I don t think that s a bad thing They are worth your time.

    Just a quick review to say that if you like engaging, witty, intelligent easy mysteries, this series is great When I first saw the title, I couldn t imagine and thought it was pot as in marijuana I love the Southwest and Native American culture and crafts, so it s great to learn a little about the pottery while being entertained.

    The I get to know the pot thief Hubert Schuze, the I appreciate his easy going, devil may care lifestyle I am not ready to copy his lacking a hobby that could provide a living and certainly being neither very open minded nor very magnanimous but it could be something for me to aspire to.
