    • Abstract:
      Summary: "The murder of a small-time drug dealer snowballs into the most complex case ever faced by Joe Gunther and his VBI team. It is said a bright and clear bomber's moon is the best asset to finding one's target. But beware what you wish for: What you can see at night can also see you. Often with dire consequences. Bomber's Moon is Archer Mayor's latest entry in the Joe Gunther series and it may just be his best yet. Two young women form the heart of this tale. One, an investigative reporter, the other a private investigator. Uneasy allies from completely different walks of life, they work together-around and sometimes against Joe Gunther and his VBI cops-in an attempt to connect the murders of a small town drug dealer, a smart, engaging, fatally flawed thief, and the tangled, political, increasingly dark goings on at a prestigious prep school. While Gunther and the VBI set about solving the two murders, Sally Kravitz and Rachel Reiling combine their talents and resources to go where the police cannot, from working undercover at Thorndike Academy, to having clandestine meetings with criminals for their insider's knowledge of Vermont's unexpectedly illicit underbelly. But there is a third element at work. A malevolent force, the common link in all this death and chaos, is hard at work sowing mayhem to protect its ancient, vicious, very dark roots"-- Provided by publisher.

Booklist Reviews 2019 August #1

*Starred Review* When we first met Joe Gunther (Open Season, 1988), he was a police lieutenant in small-town Brattleboro, Vermont. Twenty-nine books later, still going strong, he is now the statewide field commander of the Vermont Bureau of Investigation and one of the longest-serving and most respected cops in the state. Vermont, known for its activism and raw beauty, has a largely hardscrabble economy, with the "scourge of easy drug money always lurking like cancer." The murder of a small-time drug dealer seems to be open and shut at first, but it subsequently explodes into one of Gunther's most complex cases, involving a prestigious prep school and an assortment of engaging characters, including two clever thieves, one aptly named Alex B. Robbin. Thorndike Academy may be protected by wealthy benefactors, but the VBI team, with an assist from young PI Rachel Reiling and budding journalist Sally Kravitz, eventually coaxes the skeletons out of their closets. When Gunther is ready to retire, Kravitz and Reiling could well continue this series on their own. Another crackerjack police procedural from Mayor, this one is rich in chilling scenery and precise technical details. Despite its necessary economies, Vermont takes law enforcement seriously, and fans will appreciate the introduction of FARO (3D Measurement, Imaging & Realization technology) into a mix of technological tools, which, together with Gunther's crime-solving prowess, make for an absorbing read.

In bestseller Mayor's intricate 30th Joe Gunther novel (after 2018's Bury the Lead), Joe and his team at the Vermont Bureau of Investigation look into the stabbing murder of small-time crook Lyall Johnson. The night before Johnson was found dead in his apartment, he had an argument with his "usual comrade in crime," Brandon Leggatt, but Leggatt claims he left the apartment while Lyall was alive. Meanwhile, reporter Rachel Reilling, the daughter of Joe's medical examiner lover, gets on the trail of burglar Alex Hale, who's excited about some information he discovered on a laptop he stole. The stakes rise when this information, which relates to an elite Vermont prep school, leads to Hale's fatal shooting by a lake where he went for a secret meeting. Mayor skillfully weaves together the various plot strands as they converge on a dramatic confrontation between Joe and a killer. Newcomers may get impatient at times with irrelevant personal details. Fans of this long-running series, however, will enjoy catching up with Joe and the other VBI regulars. Agent: Molly Friedrich, Friedrich Agency. (Sept.)
