It Takes an Archaeologist by Edward Kendrick

OUT NOW! It Takes an Archaeologist by Edward Kendrick

Gideon Monahan is a man dedicated to what he does — recovering stolen art — to the exclusion of anything else, including a personal life. There’s a reason for that, something that happened in his past that he can’t forget.

Cole Newell is an archaeologist with a problem. He needs to find out who looted a dig he worked the previous summer, after one of the artifacts shows up at his gallery. Cole calls on Gideon to lend his expertise, which, much against his better judgment, Gideon does.

When one of the looters is murdered, they set out to find answers, with the help of Detective Quint Hawk. In the process, Cole realizes he’s attracted to Gideon, even though he’s certain the man is straight. After he helps Gideon open up about — and accept — his past, can the two men become more than friends? Both Gideon and Cole hope so, once they overcome the myriad problems facing them.

Strays in the Time of COVID by Edward Kendrick

OUT NOW! Strays in the Time of COVID by Edward Kendrick

Beaten and thrown out of his home by his father, Guy ends up on the streets. A few days later he’s ‘adopted’ by two strays, a German shepherd mix and a gray kitten.

Later that night, when he returns to a vacant house he’d found the previous day, he meets three other homeless teens — Mack, Tone, and Dani. After a false start, because they think he’s a punk looking for trouble, they become friends. Dani insists the animals need names, and she decides to call the kitten Ghost, while the dog becomes Shadow.

When Mack and Guy are threatened by two real punks in the alley behind the house, Shadow defends them, with Mack’s help. This leads to their decision that it isn’t safe to remain where they are. As they move on, the quartet’s friendship deepens, and Guy eventually trusts them enough to tell them he’s gay … which they accept with no problem, as it turns out so are Mack and Tone.

Now they have to continue dealing with life on the streets while COVID ravages the country, making being homeless a fight for their very survival.

OUT NOW! It Takes a Forger by Edward Kendrick

Officer Lou Hernandez is surprised when he’s asked to help Gideon Monahan catch an art forger. He’s not too happy, however, when he meets the man he’ll be working with. Lou thinks Rory Kinley is a supercilious pain in the ass. Rory, on the other hand, sees no reason why Lou has been brought into this. After all, he’s just a cop, albeit one who is good at going undercover.

The art forger they’re after — Nate Hanks — cons collectors, saying he has an undiscovered painting by a famous artist. He’s killed one of his marks already to keep from being caught.

Lou and Rory will have to set aside their differences as they set up a sting to stop Hanks. When they do, they discover they may not be as incompatible as they thought. The question becomes, will their growing feelings survive what’s to come — or be destroyed in the process?

The Element Case by Edward Kendrick

OUT NOW! The Element Case by Edward Kendrick

Clay Richardson is a well-known artist who owns his own gallery.

Quint Hawk, a police detective, makes contact with Clay when he sees a portrait Clay has painted in the window of the gallery — a portrait of a homeless young man who was murdered just days before. Unfortunately, Clay has no idea who the subject was.

Several months later, Quint contacts Clay to again ask about one of Clay’s paintings. The subject has been murdered, as has a third man in another of his paintings.

The reclusive artist and the handsome detective are drawn to each other as they try to determine what is happening and why. They come up with a plan to catch the killer — a plan that could end up in their deaths before they can decide if there is more to their feelings than a couple of very good nights in Clay’s bed.
