Description

With Joe Gunther and his Vermont Bureau of Investigation team spread thin on assignment everywhere, from the remote dairy country of Northwest Vermont to the slums of Newark, New Jersey, they're pushed to their absolute limit when a string of serial arsons across the Green Mountain State evolves into the most shocking series of murders the bucolic region has ever known.

Excellent!

Spoilers Involved. I have listened to every Joe Gunther book on Audible. Tom Taylorson’s voice acting is magnificent. And every woman has to fall a little in love with stoic, dependable Joe. St Albans does not disappoint. Since Mayor switched over from 1st person, we’ve had even more insight into all of the supporting players - I am Team Willie all the way-, and we’ve sadly been in the heads of murder victims minutes before their deaths.
St Albans is rich with farming families juxtaposed against Newark monsters. Through it all, Joe wants justice for a murdered teen, but he doesn’t set out at breakneck speed. It’s methodical police work with a bit of luck. Readers who have followed Joe will have a visceral, negative reaction to the hateful farmer’s wife, while laughing at Willie’s disdain for Newark.
And finally, FINALLY, Joe is untethered from Gail Zigman. I’ve always hated almost everything about her. I have no problem with her ambition and her soap boxes, but she’s always had a sneering superiority whether as a Selectman in Brattleboro (big deal) or dumping Joe after 20 years because she’s just figured out that he’s a flipping cop. As a former state’s attorney, I was pulling my hair out at her tedious moralizing while Gail was in that same job for a few books. Joe nurtures and protects everyone around him. Normally, heroes are emotionally constipated loners, but Joe is surrounded by good friends and people who need him.
He’s a man worth knowing. Adios, Gail. I will not miss you.
