review 1: After I read Tag Man, I couldn't wait to get my hands on another Archer Mayor book. I know I have said it before regarding his books, but it is so cool to read descriptions of towns that I actually know. This time we go from Boston to Holyoke to Northampton to Burlington and st...

review 1: Really enjoyed this one. As always, having so many familiar places in Vermont to relate to, it made this a book I couldn't put down once I started. It was good to catch up with the characters again. The amount of info given on the characters is perfect. It's a little like the...

review 1: This isn't a fast-paced book. On the other hand, once you're into it you can't put it down. The characters are very well drawn, and the mystery keeps getting more and more mysterious as you read on. I like this book a lot; it's one of the best crime novels I've read recently. ...

review 1: Solid debut for Archer Mayor and his lead detective Joe Gunther. There were signs of an inexperienced writer, but as a whole this was enjoyable and engaging. I would have a liked a little more expansion on the section with the villain targeting the jury. That could have been t...

review 1: You know that you are in for a 'good read,' when you have a Joe Gunther book before you. This one is no exception. Whose body is found partially buried? How does it relate to the policeman whose wife loves two men? Milly isn't a woman but the nickname of Millard, who has gott...

review 1: I really enjoyed this book. It was my first Archer Mayor mystery and I want to read more. Joe Gunther is a smart, compassionate and thoughtful narrator. The book includes sympathetic and nuanced portrayals of sexual assault as well as a decidedly progressive/feminist response to ...

review 1: What I really like about Archer Mayor is his ability to get to the point quickly. The stories move right along. Pretty much each item you read ends up having some sort impact in the final pages. That being said, I really feel like there were a couple of items that were left op...

review 1: Archer Mayor continues to write suspenseful and enjoyable books about Vermont. In this case, a senator sends hit men into Vermont to kill a recluse who is a hoarder. The dead man, Ben Kendall, served as a photographer in Viet Nam, and is a relative of Joe Gunther's current girl...

review 1: I have always enjoyad Archer Mayor's Joe Gunther series but I don't think this is one of the best. For one thing, it just kind of ENDs with a quick rundown of where the cast of characters is at that point. The thing i like most about the series is that Mayor, for the most part, g...

review 1: I was not familiar with any work of Archer Mayor. My mom actually advised me to check him out, thinking I may like it. All I can say is "Wow!"I found this book fast-moving, well-written, great plot twists and wonderful character development. It's only about 290 pages but I still ...

review 1: This is an outstanding novel. With this, his third installment in the "Joe Gunther" series, Author Mayor is at the top of his game. The dialog is crisp and the characterizations are rich. It is as if you were reading a true crime story. But where Author Mayor really shines is...

review 1: I like this series mostly because it's set in Vermont. Archer Mayor's books are well-researched, well-plotted, and written in clear prose. Gunther is a good cop, with no bad habits, who keeps his disappointments mostly to himself. Though I can enjoy reading about the brooding, se...

review 1: I had to read this book for my mystery book club and I really wasn't that impressed by it. It was too "NCIS" for me where you have these four characters that solve the case together instead of one central person doing it. Then there was 2 mysteries in the book which had no releva...
