Publisher's Summary

An overworked sheriff and a string of condo burglaries at a luxurious ski resort have Lieutenant Joe Gunther and the newly minted Vermont Bureau of Investigation digging deep for clues. But it doesn't take long for Joe to find the most likely thief missing and his girlfriend dead.

As the complications mount, from drug dealing to environmental terrorism to attempted murder, Joe and his team go undercover to infiltrate the closed society of a one-company town, populated by bored millionaires and supported by a small legion of resort employees, not all of whom are what they seem.

Great winter escape.

Story captures the beauty and challenges of winter in the Northeast. Good twists and turns on the ski hill and in the plot.

Love this series

These stories are always like coming home and spending time with old friends.

The energy is fast paced and there are lots of twists and turns.

Through the characters you get to know Vermont and they are well developed seeming real.

Tom Taylorson is a Master Storyteller!

One of my Favorite Joe Gunther Stories

I would listen to almost anything that Tom Taylorson read, but there is a scene in this story where Joe has to try to rescue a little girl and her mom that is one of my favorites. I'm a big fan of both author and narrator. I haven't listened to the 3 or 4 Archer Mayor books read by someone else, though I did try. I finally went and bought the books so I could read them myself.

Hero

I am addicted to Joe and his crew! Cannot stop listening to them! He reminds of Longmire another wonderful series and hero. Give Mayor’s books a try, I have listened to at least 8 or more and all are wonderful!

Joe Gunther Bk 12

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.

Well done .... w/ one exception

No need to wax eloquent. Brilliant author, amazing narration. Just didn't like the limited use of expletives - not super creative, mostly limited to "Jesus," "Christ," and "God" - especially towards the end. The selection seemed so limited and specific that I wondered if the author had a personal bone to pick with the Almighty.

Joe Gunther does it again.

Tucker Peak was great! Started out with a very expensive stolen watch, soon its murder and more murder. We see Gunther and Sam go undercover here which was a fun addition to the story. Like seeing the ongoing character development that takes place from book to book, keeps me really connected with them and the series in general.

Getting boring

Again, I'm glad there wasn't a lot of Gail. Hard to picture her as Joe's sex kitten with old lady nasal voice. I'm so over her bitchy attitude & holier than thou persona. The books have become increasingly tedious with repetitive information. The author explains previous plots/characters as happens with series but to have to reiterate within the same book. To use one of the author's favorite words. Superfluous. The last 2 books in series made it hard to pay attention. Boring. I hope this doesn't become a trend.

Good Listen

I like the new dynamics of the VBI and the relationships within the team. It seems to give the books more background and depth than the first books. Characters now seem more two dimensional. Great story feels much quicker than eight hours. No padding just a good listen.

Big disappointment. This book I didn’t like at all

This book was not a good plot far to much corporate background.
I didn’t like the new Federal Agent set up at all, there was a complete lack of timely communication and co operation between the different forces involved. I agree with Willie it was ..a crock job one that did not require the team and should be left to the local cops. Jo should retire from active duty and take a desk job. The newly formed unit did not work.Plot had far to many boring corporate back ground details, and to many references to Jo Gunther combat experience..it’s not feasible to suggest a man who gets tired after an hour and a half’s walk, could abseil down a cable car cable hanging from a crowbar… If Jo and Gail have the “are we ok” discussion just once more I will scream. He is an arrogant selfish man who only will do what he wants to do he will never enter into a proper relationship with Gail. He is also a real wimp. Always falling over, or dropping vital equipment. Bring back Sami, Willie and the others, and another good plot please, this book was just boring. And I’m a fan of the author and narrator.

Getting shorter!

How many times can one person be in A&E! And please, Gale and Joe, break up or shut up it’s becoming tiresome.
