WILMINGTON- Local favorite Archer Mayor will be at Bartleby’s Books on Saturday, November 23, at 2 pm, to discuss and sign copies of his latest detective novel, “Three Can Keep a Secret.” Set during the 2011 real-life Tropical Storm Irene that ravaged much of Vermont, Joe Gunther and the Vermont Bureau of Investigation pitch in to help the state’s overextended authorities. What Gunther and his agents end up with is an odd, seemingly unrelated batch of cases: a patient who calls herself The Governor has walked away from a state mental facility when the flooded facility is evacuated, and a 17-year-old gravesite is exposed, revealing a coffin that had been filled with rocks instead of the expected remains. Amid the turmoil and the disaster relief, it’s up to Joe Gunther and his team to learn what really happened with the two corpses-one on hand and one missing-and what secret The Governor might have locked in her brain.
Mayor is the author of the highly acclaimed Vermont-based series featuring detective Joe Gunther, which the Chicago Tribune describes as “the best police procedurals being written in America.” He is a past winner of the New England Independent Booksellers Association Award for Best Fiction—the first time a writer of crime literature has been so honored. He has 25 years of experience as a volunteer firefighter/EMT. He lives in Newfane.
Mayor will be signing his latest book as well as previous books in the Joe Gunther series. Call (802) 464-5425 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a personalized copy. Bartleby’s Books is at 17 West Main Street. For more information visit myvermontbookstore.com or www.archermayor.com.
