- Customer Reviews:
"Mayor is a gifted storyteller, and his books always offer well-crafted characters, skillful storytelling, and one of the strongest senses of place in the mystery genre. This one wont disappoint, and a lyrical 200-word description of a Brattleboro snowfall might be the sweetest, most knowing 200 words of the year."
"As a stylist, Mayor is one of those meticulous construction workers who are fascinated with the way things function. He's the boss man on procedures."
The New York Times
"Mayors sturdy series about police lieutenant Joe Gunther has much more on its mind than just mystery. Each book tackles at least one important social issue -- but Mayors greatest strength remains his uncanny ability to capture the seedy, seamy sides of life in his home state of Vermont."
"Mayor is not given to gimmicks and manipulation. There are flashier writers, but few deliver such well-rounded novels of such consistently high quality. When asked what they do for a living, Mayor explains, most Vermonters will answer, everything. As it happens, that's also what Mayor the writer does well: everything."

The investigations play out against the backdrop of a bill introduced in the Vermont legislature by one of Brattleboro's own that would eliminate the sixty eight separate policing agencies in the state and create one agency - the VBI, Vermont Bureau of Investigation. The bill is unpopular with every cop, sheriff and detective.
And layered on all of this is the widening gap between Joe and Gail - her job at the State's Attorney is not what she wants and Joe is afraid he is not what she wants.
Mayor ties all the pieces together and develops the series in the process. This installment does not have any huge twists or turns but seemlessly melds the story with character development. A must for readers of the series.
