Publisher's Summary

The murder of a small-time drug dealer snowballs into the most complex case ever faced by Joe Gunther and his VBI team.

It is said a bright and clear bomber’s moon is the best asset to finding one’s target. But beware what you wish for: what you can see at night can also see you, often with dire consequences.

Two young women form the heart of this tale. One is an investigative reporter, the other a private investigator. Uneasy allies from completely different walks of life, they work together - around and sometimes against Joe Gunther and his VBI cops - in an attempt to connect the murders of a small-town drug dealer; a smart, engaging, fatally flawed thief; and the tangled, political, increasingly dark goings on at a prestigious prep school.

While Gunther and the VBI set about solving the two murders, Sally Kravitz and Rachel Reiling combine their talents and resources to go where the police cannot, from working undercover at Thorndike Academy, to having clandestine meetings with criminals for their insider’s knowledge of Vermont’s unexpectedly illicit underbelly.

But there is a third element at work. A malevolent force, the common link in all this death and chaos, is hard at work sowing mayhem to protect its ancient, vicious, very dark roots.

Over developed character list for plot.

While always great to visit with Joe, Sam, Willie, Lester and the crew, this book is over laden with unnecessary, and often confusing, micro over development of its core characters for the mediocre plot. It's ending seems to indicate that Archer, too, tired of this story.

So disappointed!

I love Joe Gunther and his crew. Listened to all books before this one. This one was bad, I hate reading books where the female characters are stupid, it’s frustrating. This book was about an immature, spoiled daughter of Joe’s girlfriend, getting herself into trouble. Not what I wanted to read. Didn’t even finish it. I guess I’m done with the series, looks like the next one is more of the same. Highly recommend all in the series before this.

Great series

I love this fast paced always a mystery until the end story.

The characters now feel like old friends.

Tom Taylorson is an excellent narrator.

Another great Gunther story

We really like the consistency of hound dog Joe and how Archer Mayor develops both his characters and the story details.

Fantastic

What another great read by Archer Mayor!! Racheal and Sally did a wonderful job in this book. I honestly think if it weren’t for the 2 girls it would have been difficult for Joe and the team to solve this one. Between witnesses being killed and others being paid off it was making for a hard case to solve, all over a family secret.
I highly recommend this book and can’t wait until April 2021 for the newest Joe Gunther book to come out.

Joe Gunther Series

I have loved the entire series and I cant wait for more to come in the future. My favorite person was Willie. I love that he and Sammy are a couple. It is about time Joe finds a woman he can spend his life with that is more like him. Lester and his wife are the normal couple but like them also. Thank you Archor Mayor for these.

good installment

I have read or listened to most of the Joe Gunther series. This was very good. I like the VIB team. The story was really two stories that came together. Sally Kravitz and Rachel Reiling are two reoccurring characters that team up and help solve one of the mysteries.

I really like this series. worth it

Enjoyable

I am not listening to the series in order but I am enjoying the characters.
The characters have depth and emotion and vulnerabilities. They are all easy to like, even minor characters.
At first the mystery seems like two different stories but they merge beautifully.

Incomplete

Apart from being an all-round disappoint, the book is incomplete. This is either an attempt to make readers buy a similarly aimless sequel or the author couldn't work out how to finish it and just gave up. I do wish writers would take the trouble to map out the plot before they started. Why it was published in this state presents more of a mystery than anything in the book.
