Joe Gunther goes somewhat far afield in this suspense law enforcement drama from Newark, New Jersey to St. Albans, Vermont (and for a small amount of time, albeit important) to Montpelier, Vermont. Combine dairy farms and arson and that is the backdrop for this book. If you have experience with farming, especially in the dairy business, and you like detective based dramas with a fair amount of action, you should like this novel. Even if you have no experience with farming at all, and come from a big city like Newark, then you will be able to experience a story similar to home. The author, Archer Mayor, takes pains to describe Newark in far less than positive terms (to say the least). St. Albans, Vermont, on the other hand, is a polar opposite in many ways, but the two cities get connected in this thriller.

Gunther has Willy and Sammie, his two detectives, along for the ride as part of the Vermont Bureau of Investigation team. Gunther's girlfriend, Gail, has a couple of cameo appearances until the end of the book, where she plays a prominent role. Gail, now a State Senator, is under a lot of pressure dealing with GMO issues in Vermont (just like today, ironically). The author does a good job with the interplay between politics and law enforcement, just enough to make it clear that everywhere the team goes, somehow politics either helps or hurts their efforts.

I have read, in order (1-16), all but one of the Gunther series, and all on Kindle Fire. This is a good read, one of the best Gunther's based books from Archer Mayor yet. Like Grisham, Mayor pulls no punches on background. I really like that about how Archer Mayor goes about describing the towns where Gunther works. You always know where the author and Joe Gunther stand!
I wish all mystery/thriller writers were as clear, compelling, and concise as Mr. Mayor. I really enjoyed this book; I ordered it after finishing Scent of Evil, another of the books in the Joe Gunther series, and I plan to read them all. The characters were well-developed and sympathetic, and the plot was cogent and held my interest to the end. The book is a perfect example of a well-written book in this genre, and I am anxious to get started on another. I'm relieved that it doesn't appear necessary to read them in any particular order.
This is an entry in a successful, long running serious. Unlike many series, this one has not grown stale. Joe Gunther is aging gracefully and trying to cope with continuing personal problems. This novel begins with the deliberate burning of a barn; but is it a single incident or part of a larger scheme? The plot is complex, but it does not strain credibility. The one flaw is the continued appearance of the very tiresome Willy Kunkle character. Nevertheless, this is an enjoyable addition to the series.
greed style
Having read the previous books in the Joe Gunther series, I feel that this one is better than most of the others. It might just be how I feel about it and others might feel differently. I will say that it was a refreshingly easy read. I finished it in a day, and I've already downloaded the next in the series (to be read in a week or two).

THis one is about the farming (specifically dairy) industry in the north east, and their particular woes; a series of arsons and possible other catastrophies, including a death (possibly unintentional) in one case.
This is another very good book in a very good series. The complex plot holds the reader's attention and the characters remain interesting. The central character, Joe Gunther, is thoughtful and believable. I am so glad that the author has resisted the temptation to make him, rich, famous, or alcoholic. Too many great starts have been lost to these sidelines. Joe remains and good cop, supervisor, and real person. The VCI solves crimes and holds the reader's interest.
I live in upstate NY and have been to Burlington Vermont several times. My wife read his 1st book and said that it was about people like us. She then kept telling me how well he wrote and suggesting that I give him a try. I did and got hooked. Last week I read the last of his 27 books. They do not need to be read in order but I think I enjoyed them more because I did. Like my wife told me "Give him a chance."
LOVE LOVE LOVE this book series about Joe Gunther. The writer is so gifted - I read them all and was sad to get to the last one published (about 30 books! Looking forward to the new one - Mr. Mayor - write faster!
I never know what I'm going to find hidden away in the Joe Gunther novels once I start reading. This one was a little slow getting started, but once it did, it was as in depth as all of Mayor's works. The dairy farming industry was portrayed along with the people that make it work. As always, Mayor's characters are as real as life itself in the small state of Vermont. I'm glad that Joe Gunther made one big decision in his life, one that I was hoping would happen. I never saw the end coming the way it did. All in all, a most enjoyable read.
