Archer Mayor is coming to Woodstock to discuss his latest Joe Gunther novel: Bury the Lead.
In Mayor’s latest crime novel, a woman is found dead at the top of a Vermont ski area in the summer. The investigation leads to Mick Durocher, who, when confronted, confesses to the killing. Case closed? Hardly. The confession is riddled with holes, the evidence doesn’t back it up, and Joe Gunther and his crew are left to wonder why their initially hot lead is dead and the murder now clearly the work of some unseen master manipulator.
Archer Mayor has written 29 bestselling Joe Gunther novels based on his actual experience in the field. Over the past 30 years, he has worked (or continues to work) as a firefighter/EMT, a police officer, and a death investigator for Vermont’s Office of the Chief Medical Examiner. Mayor’s diverse careers in other fields also inform his books. He has been a scholar, editor, researcher, and photographer, as well as a political advance man and a medical illustrator. He is a graduate of Yale.In 2016, the author received the Robert B. Parker Award, named for “the dean of mystery writers.” He is also a received the Vermont Governor’s Award for Excellence in the Arts.
