Monthly Meeting: October 2018
Bury the Lead, with author, detective, historian and medical examiner Archer Mayor
NOTE THE EARLY START TIME:
October 20, 11:00-12:00, Bethlehem Library
Archer Mayor is the author of the highly acclaimed Vermont-based mystery series featuring detective Joe Gunther, which the Chicago Tribune describes as “the best police procedurals being written in America.” His 29th book, Bury the Lead, is due out in September (Minotaur/St. Martin’s Press).
Protagonist Lt. Joe Gunther works for the Brattleboro, Vermont, police department. Books about his case-solving prowess have been completed about once a year since 1988, and have been published in five languages (if you count British). They routinely gather high praise from such sources as The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, and the New Yorker, often appearing on annual “ten best” lists.
Mayor’s novels are based on actual experience in the field. Closely aligned to the Gunther series are his experiences while working as a police officer and a firefighter/EMT in Vermont. In addition, he is currently still working part-time as a death investigator for the Vermont State Medical Examiner’s office. The result adds depth, detail and veracity to his characters and their tribulations.
