Now available -- A New Ed Ramsey Mystery!
Chased By The Past
Ed Ramsey and Tracey Reilly were celebrating their honeymoon in Ireland when Tracey learned that her estranged brother Frank suddenly had decided to return to Buffalo, Tracey’s hometown, and live with their mother. Tracey and her mother were thrilled at this news, and Ed was anxious to meet his new brother-in-law.
The reunion was a happy one until an attempt was made on Frank’s life. Frank claimed he knew of no one who would want to harm him, but he reluctantly revealed that he ran into financial and drug trouble after he abruptly left Buffalo and went to Florida. But even after disclosing his past problems, Ed and Tracey are certain he’s keeping a dangerous secret to himself. It will take all the efforts of Ed, Tracey, and Ed’s son Frosty (who refer to themselves as the “Ramsey Detective Agency”) to solve what turns out to be a very complicated set of crimes.
Ed Ramsey’s girlfriend, Tracey, and his son, Frosty, just completed the training necessary to scuba dive. As a celebration, Ed invited them to join him on a weekend dive trip in the Gulf of Mexico, only to have it marred by tragedy: a diver goes missing and later is found dead on the sea bottom. However, what first appears to be a fatal accident turns out to be a case of murder, and Ed reluctantly finds himself entangled in the investigation.
The murderer must be among the small group of passengers and crew on board the dive vessel, but the police can find no motive for the killing, which greatly complicates their ability to identify potential suspects. Ed, Tracey, and Frosty try to assist the authorities, which leads them into some harrowing experiences before the case is solved.

The first Ed Ramsey Mystery!
Arrangement For Revenge
Edwin Ramsey, a jazz guitarist and music professor at a small college, has his life turned upside down when his department chairman is found with his throat slashed.
Ed becomes embroiled in the murder when Allison Clark, the victim’s oboe student, discovers the body and rushes into Ed’s studio for help. To complicate things further, Ed’s friend and faculty colleague becomes the prime suspect in the killing.
Questions abound as the local sheriff tries to sift through the puzzling clues. What is the motive for the crime? Is the enigmatic Miss Clark somehow involved? Why does a student’s suicide four years earlier seem to hold a key to identifying the murderer? While trying to help the sheriff solve the mystery, Ed finds his own life in danger!
