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.

Good book but incomplete ending!

Another good book by Archer Mayor that stops short of winding up the ending. There should have been another chapter instead of an abrupt ending. Tom Taylirson is great!

Mostly good, but with an annoyingly truncated ending

Good characters and story line, but I wish Mayor would write more interesting endings! Most of his books are lacking in this department, but this is one of the more egregious examples. It’s as if the last chapter was left out! I suppose it’s a stylistic choice that some may not mind, but to me it cheapens what was otherwise a solidly enjoyable book.

so so book

This book is not as good as others have been it really didn't lack an excitement and imagination and not sure where it stands in line with the others but I would have think that this is one of the beginning books written by this author cuz the other ones I've heard are so much better than this one

Brilliant!

I listened all the Joe Gunther novels. Bomber Moon is Archer Mayor’s master piece. Tom Taylorson’s performance adds color to the story. Brilliant!

Joe Gunther Bk 30

I was new to Joe Gunther mysteries //Archer Mayor and began listening with book 1. I was captivated by the character building of all the individuals in the series. I almost feel like I know each of their doppelgangers in my own life. As I was saying I began with book 1 and became so entrenched in the Joe Gunther mysteries I binged listened to all 32 books with fascination, escape, and enjoyment. I love the less than perfect characters, the thought processes each character manipulates and how each struggle with mental demons (some more than others) that make them real and come to life. I am also really impressed that not one of Mr Mayor’s stories (of all 32 books) repeat themselves in story line which is a impressive feat. My only disappointment is the next book isn’t out until Sept 2022.

Great book, great series!

Definitely recommend. I love that we're seeing a new generation of Brattleboro crime solvers come into their own. Joe and his team, with some help, solve new and vintage crimes and everybody's personal relationships are chugging along smoothly. It's a perfect Joe Gunther book.

Good story

Probably just me ( I often go to sleep listening to books ), but somehow following the narration was difficult, and I had to keep going back and relistening which is uncommon. In the end a satisfying story.

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.
