I was particularly impressed by the handling in this book of three separate plot lines without getting lost in the weeds, confusing the reader, or jarring us with the transitions. Mayor does this well in other series, but he's become a master in this book.
Mayor is a keen observer of human nature, his native New England, and the peculiar characters, hot house flowers, who inhabit it. As a lover of crime novels, I cannot recommend this series more highly.
And if you are ever in Brattleboro, get a coffee on Main Street and wander over to Murder on Main Street and buy a hard copy there. The owner can tell you about Mayor. He's quite the local legend.
The mysteries and police procedurals I read are often paced at 100 miles per hour, leaving you gasping at the end. Most of the time, that's a lot of fun. Archer Mayor's books are more thoughtful and quiet and leave the reader satisfied in a different way. Like Donna Leon, whose Commissario Bruni books are quiet and more cerebral than action-based , Mayor's books leave one feeling they have spent time with people they are comfortable with, glad they have spent the time together.
I've read all 28 of Mayor's works and each one keeps getting better, if that's possible.
It’s a much better experience if the series is read in order.
This book makes me anxious to see where the next one leads.
