Book Nook: Three Can Keep a Secret, by Archer Mayor
In Archer Mayor's 24th crime novel featuring Joe Gunther and his crew from the Vermont Bureau of Investigation the area is still in recovery mode in the aftermath of Hurricane Irene. The VBI gets a call to investigate a situation in a cemetery; floodwaters had exposed some graves and one of them has revealed a coffin that was buried 17 years ago. The coffin had been filled with stones. Whoever was supposed to be inside apparently wasn't ever in there.
Then there's the suspicious death of a retired politician. This man has been found dead at his residence in a very expensive retirement community. This man had many enemies. So who killed him?
In this interview Archer Mayer talks about this long-running series and his own work for the VBI.
