Recent release "The Watch in the Box" from Page Publishing author Pat Ely is a riveting novel about a duo of sudden detectives caught in a surprising string of murders and conspiracies.

​Pat Ely, a retail jewelry employee for thirty years and a program manager for a telecommunications company, has completed his new book “The Watch in the Box”: an electrifying read about a couple’s exploits of solving murder cases brought about by their unexpected discovery of a buried watch in the woods.

Author Ely tells an exciting plot of drama, suspense, and action reminiscent of detective novels highlighting striking protagonists: “Jim and Kate Tuttle were living a quiet life in Olympia, Washington. He is a jewelry store manager, and she is a floral designer. Finding a watch buried in the woods while searching for treasures with a metal detector, Jim and Kate start down a path that will change their lives forever. This collection of mystery stories follows their exploits as they maneuver through murder after murder and their quest to get answers for the people they represent, all the while trying to do so without ending up as one of their own cases. With the help of a new friend, Elmer ‘Butch’ Danforth, Jim and Kate do their best to solve the cases they are given while still juggling their careers.

Taking place from Olympia to Glacier National Park, these stories will keep you guessing who the murderer is until the last minute.”

Published by New York City–based Page Publishing, Pat Ely’s galvanizing tale contains moments of deep deduction and gut instincts as the Tuttles manage their common lives while avoiding the heat of the cases they resolutely try to unveil.
