       Additional Information  
      Anyone who thinks life in small-town America is either idyllic or safe hasn't read Archer Mayor's series of murder mysteries set in Brattleboro, Vermont. Drugs, sex, murder--all those big-city crimes have their counterparts in the Green Mountain State, and Mayor's fictional police officer, Lieutenant Joe Gunther, is no Andy Griffith of Mayberry. In Bellows Falls, hard-boiled Gunther finds himself up to his neck in spousal abuse, sexual debauchery, teen crime, police corruption, and cold-blooded murder as he investigates a seemingly simple case of sexual harassment. Forget the cheddar cheese and maple syrup--visitors to Archer Mayor's Vermont get a close-up view of rural New England's dark side.


    Mystery Large Print Edition Mayor delivers another superb combination of case, characters and local color and brings it all to life without a wasted word. starred, Publishers Weekly Honoring a request to conduct a minor Internal Affairs investigation for a small-town police department, Joe Gunther travels upriver to the town of Bellows Falls. But theres more to this case than a young officers embarrassment. Soon rumors of police corruption, spousal abuse, drug deals and murder begin to engulf the little river town and Joe is the one responsible for separating fact from fiction, which is becoming a dangerous task . . .
