Jed Power is a Hampton Beach, NH based writer and an “Active” member of Mystery Writers of America. His fourth novel in the Dan Marlowe crime series, “Honeymoon Hotel,” will be published in both e-versions and trade paper May 1, 2015.

The first three novel in the series, “The Boss of Hampton Beach,” “Hampton Beach Homicide, and “Blood On Hampton Beach,” are all available in paper and as eBooks. The protagonist is Hampton Beach, NH bartender, Dan Marlowe.

The real Dan Marlowe was Jed’s father’s best friend. Mr. Marlowe wrote his crime masterpiece, “The Name of the Game is Death,” while living with the Power family in Woburn, MA. He named a character in the novel after Jed Power. Jed has returned the honor by naming his protagonist Dan Marlowe.

This book made it into the final cut (5 novels) for the 2014 Minotaur/Private Eye Writers of America “Best First Private Eye Novel,” competition.

Jed also collects vintage Noir/Hardboiled paperbacks, which includes, amongst many other items, the largest collection of Dan Marlowe novels, short stories, inscribed items and memorabilia.

Jed is also mentioned several times in the new Dan Marlowe biography, “Gunshots In Another Room,” by journalist Charles Kelly.
