Joe Gunther, a longtime Vermont cop and now the head of the Vermont Bureau of Investigation gets the call that every law enforcement person hates and every friend and family member of a policeman fears—a cop has been shot and killed. A deputy sheriff was shot to death during a routine traffic stop on a dark country road. From what can been seen on the cruiser’s tape recorder of the killers, it is believed that they were a couple of Boston-based drug runners who had been stopped by the deputy on their way from Canada down to Boston.  Which is what brings Gunther and his team to the investigation—an attempt to shut down the major drug running operation. Especially that of one Alan Budney, disaffected son of a lobsterman, now a drug kingpin, who uses the closed, clannish lobster fishing community and his extended family in particular, to move drugs along the New England coast.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Archer Mayor doesn’t do quaint. He might use poetic imagery to describe the austere beauty of New England’s rugged mountains and snowbound villages, but as far as their crime content is concerned, his police procedurals are about as authentic as it gets.” New York Times
“[A] superior regional series…an unexpected final catch, one of many in the story, will leave fans feeling fully satisfied.” Publishers Weekly
“Mayor’s nineteenth crime novel offers an interesting tale with a suspenseful denouement.” Library Journal
“Elegant, even lyrical prose...a new Joe Gunther is always good news.” Booklist
