Sintesi dell'editore

Lieutenant Joe Gunther is in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom investigating a minor embezzling case. It's a pleasant distraction and a chance to reconnect with old friends, but when a house fire reveals itself to be arson, compounded by murder, Gunther can't help but investigate. He quickly finds himself enmeshed in a web of animosity between put-upon townspeople, the state police, angry parents, and members of a reclusive sect. Murder follows murder, yet no one seems to be telling Gunther the whole truth - not even his childhood friends. And truth is what he desperately needs if he's to stop the killings.

Meh

Kind of an odd experience. I love the narration. I love the world building. I love the storytelling ... mostly.

Everything feels good about the story until you hit about 75%. And then the resolution comes a bit haphazardly. Very quickly with a lackluster aha moment. I'm also not sold on Joe. He's a good lead but also doesn't really seem to be putting in the effort. And in this one, he talked to much. As seasoned as he is, and feels, it's at odds with the character he's supposed to be.

I'm sticking with it for a bit though. They've got a nice rhythm.

Exceptional

Again, audible has made it possible to read new authors and I’m grateful to have found an awesome series. Both the authors’ story and the narrator takes one out of their reality into a story of mystery.
Thank you.

so glad I found Joe

just started reading Archer Mayor's Joe Gunther series and I'm loving them. although I wouldn't want to live in his town (too many murders), the locale and people remind me of home (Michigan's Upper Peninsula). I like Joe's human frailties, his supporting cast - especially Kunkle - and the small town feel with their dark underbellies. great reading or listening.

Love this series & performance!!

I just found these books probably 2 weeks ago. I'm moving on to book 4. I'm hooked. I haven't even used my credit yet because this series has kept me thoroughly entertained. The performance is fantastic and the stories are a mix of mystery, thriller, with some humor and great detective work. I saw a few bad reviews before deciding to give them a try and obviously this just isn't the genre for those people. This is everything I look for in murder mystery books with awesome narration, and did I mention that almost all of these books are included with Prime membership?! There are a ton of books in this series!

1990 copyright

If you like riding a bicycle with flat tires, then this is the book for you. It creeps along sedately as the cast members are introduced and suspicious deaths are shuffled into the mix... then the down hill pace quickens as a gory murder scene amps up the action. The nonstop police work carries us along to unravel a fine plot.

Breath Taking

A breathtaking rendition from Archer Mayer's "Border Line", narrated catchingly well by Tom Taylorson. Ltn Gunther is loaned to a prosecutor to investigate a case in a nearby county. This is the cooling off time he desires to sooth a wounded heart. Instead, he ends up in his hometown investigating a group suspected to a cult, murders, a fire, and intrigues, all connected to a family desiring to get back a daughter suspected to be brainwashed by the group. In a series of twists, turns, and surprises. He barely survives. Being Gunther, he is all the wiser.

Just as good

I read the first book and was enthralled by it amd got the second right away. It did not falter to. e a good book if not better them the first. The characters are even better the before. Although i thought it would be better if it took place in the same town as the first but thats just me. I can not wait to read book three.

Easy listening, enjoyable series.

Easy listening, enjoyable series. Doesn’t require listening intently. Previously I didn’t like the narrator but in this series he is much more realistic and credible.
