Joe Gunther Series

In New York Times bestelling author Archer Mayor’s thrilling police procedural Joe Gunther Novels, the Vermont Bureau of Investigation tackles high-profile murders and other criminal cases in the town of Brattleboro. Led by Gunther, the VBI team is dedicated to serving justice and punishing the guilty.

“From its palpably brilliant opening…to the uncertain denouement…Proof Positive is another riveting addition to one of the finest series in crime fiction. A circuitous plot, finely drawn characters, and Mayor’s evocative, writerly grace notes… make this a must-read for crime lovers.” —Booklist (starred review)
