Publisher's Summary

Lt. Joe Gunther of the Brattleboro, Vermont, police force has a serious problem: in a community where a decade could pass without a single murder, the body count is suddenly mounting. Innocent citizens are being killed - and others set up - seemingly orchestrated by a mysterious ski-masked man.

Signs suggest that a three-year-old murder trial might lie at the heart of things, but it's a case that many in the department would prefer remained closed. A man of quiet integrity, Lt. Gunther knows that he must pursue the case to its conclusion, wherever it leads.

Awesome!

Action packed book with good characters and plot. I really liked the narrator. I would suggest this book if you like murder mysteries.

Thought it would never end...

Would you try another book from Archer Mayor and/or Tom Taylorson?

Not at this point.

Has Open Season turned you off from other books in this genre?

No

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The infinite "F" word references never ended...I understand characters have facets but this was too much.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Open Season?

Tone down the "F" word comments! Who wants to hear that?

Any additional comments?

Belter of a book

Archer Mayor has introduced a great character in this complicated, very readable and convincing plot. Hope his next book is as good as this one

Pedestrian

A rather old fashioned style of writing with a plodding and ultimately not very interesting plot line. The author does say in his introduction that his intention was not to write a dramatic thriller but something that showed how people get on with their lives. Regretfully he succeeds to well producing a dreary story with too much unnecessary back story and a plot that feels like he’s just made up as he goes along. I also got no sense of time and place, ok there’s a lot of snow in Vermont but that’s about it. What lifts this audiobook is the superlative narrator.
