“All the Joe Gunther books are terrific… As they say in New England, wicked good writing.”
Washington Post Book World
“I once asked my wife who her favorite mystery author was and she said Archer Mayor… I’m not sure our marriage has recovered.”

HCB in Vermont
Gunther follows the investigation to Chicago where he is a real fish out of water. The small state boy struggles in the big city but manages to move the case forward toward mob ties and hippie influences. He finally runs afoul of the Chicago PD and is asked (told) to leave. But the case is really back in Vermont.
The case starts as an interesting puzzle and Gunther is worth the time, Mayor could have shortened the book by a hundred pages.
However this one took a twist. Basic story: Old grave dug up in Brattleboro. CSI Time - it's murder.
In workingf the case Joe finds it starts in Chicago and goes there to investigate. This time his side kick is a Chicago detective 3 months from retirement.
It goes from there so sit back and enjoy the ride. Wood chuck Joe in Chi town's enormity.
The basic pattern is there. He is peeling the onion to find out what happend upsetting the apple cart alonmg the way.But he does it in such a way that you just don't want to close your Kindle.
