Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Another riveting addition to one of the finest series in crime fiction. A circuitous plot, finely drawn characters, and Mayor’s evocative, writerly grace notes—e.g., a paean to non–Big Box hardware stores and the charms of southern Vermont’s towns and villages—make this a must-read for crime lovers.” Booklist (starred review)
“Over twenty-six years and twenty-five books Joe Gunther has moved from police detective in Brattleboro, Vt., to special agent of the Vermont Bureau of Investigation, and, as he has grown in stature, so has the series…Mayor makes full use of Gunther’s excellent supporting cast, including Willy Kunkle, Lester Spinney, and Sammie Martens, in this smoothly plotted and absorbing mystery.” Publishers Weekly
“Joe Gunther and company return in full force in this absorbing sequel to Three Can Keep a Secret. For longtime fans of the series, it is compelling to see these characters’ personalities and life situations change as they age. New readers, however, will still enjoy this book immensely. There’s plenty of mystery and suspense to satisfy fans of police procedurals, detective fiction, and solid mystery writing.” Library Journal
“Archer Mayor’s Vermont police procedurals are the best thing going.” New York Times Book Review, praise for the series
“Archer Mayor is producing what are consistently the best police-procedural series being written in America.” Chicago Tribune, praise for the series
