Across Brattleboro, Vermont, rich people (some with dark secrets) are waking up in their high security, alarm-equipped homes to find a Post-It note stuck to their bedside tables reading, “You’re it.” There is little sign of disturbance anywhere, nothing stolen (that anyone admits) and only a bit of expensive food eaten as a signature. The press loves the story and dubs the burglar the Tag Man. But who is he? And what’s he actually doing? In fact, he’s quickly running for his life, for what he discovers in one of these houses appears to be proof of a heinous string of murders. But is it? Joe Gunther, struggling to recover from a devastating personal loss, leads his VBI team to untangle the many conflicting pieces of evidence, while the burglar himself struggles for survival in the no-man’s land between the police and the villains. No one knows what to believe or who to trust. Tag Man is running for his life in a way he never imagined possible. No one knows who’s watching as they sleep—or who truly did what. Tag Man is critically acclaimed author Archer Mayor at his very finest.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Riveting.” Associated Press
“Vermont’s history and geography again serve Mayor well in this deadly and highly entertaining entry.” Publishers Weekly
“The Tag Man’s break-ins—in addition to renewing Joe’s commitment to his work—trigger a circuitous series of crimes and events that make for great reading. Richly drawn characters and a delightful sense of place are hallmarks of Mayor’s superb procedurals, and they are both in evidence in this fine addition to the series.” Booklist
“It’s hard to imagine a more likable thief than Mayor’s Tag Man—or, for that matter, a more companionable lawman than the time-and-trouble-tested Sage of Brattleboro.” Kirkus Reviews
“Excellent narration plus an involving plot make Mayor’s follow up to Red Herring (also available from AudioGO and read by Dufris) an audio treat…Although initially Dufris’ reading doesn’t jump out and grab you, as the plot builds and he intensifies his pace, his narration slowly and subtly captures our attention. He distinctively voices all characters, using gravelly tones for Joe and more precise speech patterns for some of Joe’s workmates. Female characters, from teenagers to senior citizens, sound natural and believable, no small task for a male reader. Even Joe’s German psychiatrist speaks in a believable dialect. This spellbinding procedural receives a top-notch reading. Series fans and new listeners alike will be pleased.” Booklist (starred audio review)
”William Dufris has the gift of making the listener forget about the narrator as he keeps the suspense going. Just when things seem to be falling into place, the plot twists unexpectedly. Dufris makes the characters feel like old friends, each one distinctly defined by his or her vocal quality—and he is especially great at making the listener root for the ‘Tag Man,’ a very intriguing character! Joe Gunther fans and newcomers will enjoy this entertaining mystery.” AudioFile
