Summary

Summary

Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award

Joe Gunther and his team at the Vermont Bureau of Investigation are alerted to a string of unrelated burglaries across Vermont. Someone, in addition to flats creens, computers, and stereos, has also been stealing antiques and jewelry. Meanwhile, in Boston, an elderly woman surprises some thieves in her Beacon Hill home and is viciously murdered. The Boston police find that not only is the loot similar to what's being stolen in Vermont, but it may have the same destination. Word is out that someone powerful is purchasing these particular kinds of items in the "Paradise City" of Northampton, Massachusetts.

Gunther, the Boston Police, and the vengeful niece of the murdered old lady convene on Northampton, eager to get to the bottom of the mystery and find the "responsible parties"—although each is motivated to mete out some very different penalties.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Mayor’s solid twenty-third Joe Gunther novel focuses on a tri-cornered interstate case involving multiple thefts…Fans of this first-rate procedural series will be satisfied.” Publishers Weekly
“Dufris excels at bringing listeners into the heads of all the characters. The added psychological touch in the point of view gives everything a note of believability that adds to the tension.” AudioFile
“Once again, the long-running and best-selling police procedural series surprises and thrills.” Library Journal
“Understated, occasionally very funny, and very intelligent. In his twenty-third appearance, the Sage of Brattleboro remains as appealing as ever.” Kirkus Reviews
