Archer Mayor will read from, discuss, and sign The Company She Kept, his 26th book featuring Lt. Joe Gunther of the Brattleboro, Vermont police department, at the Ilsley Public Library.
During the depths of a brutal Vermont winter, the body of a murdered woman is found. She is, in fact, a state senator as well as the best friend and ally of the state's governor, Gail Zigman. At Zigman’s personal request, Joe Gunther and his Vermont Bureau of Investigation team agree to help the Vermont State Police in their investigation before the victim’s high profile and powerful friends create the inevitable publicity maelstrom. Evidence of a hate crime raises the stakes, or might it be a feint designed to confuse and mislead investigators? What Gunther and his team discover during their initial investigation isn’t the stuff of a simple murder. Someone killed a prominent figure and fabricated an elaborate scene for a purpose.
Archer Mayor, in addition to writing the New York Times bestselling Joe Gunther series, is an investigator for the sheriff’s department, a state medical examiner, and a firefighter/EMT. He lives near Brattleboro.
Presented by The Vermont Book Shop and the Ilsley Public Library.
