The Catch: a Joe Gunther Novel (DB 73170) was highly recommended by a patron who loves mysteries. He said that he really didn't want to stop listening to it until it was done. Just as a sighted reader cannot put the book down, he couldn't turn his audio book off. The Joe Gunther series is built around Joe Gunther, the head of the Vermont Bureau of Investigation. When one of the Vermont state troopers is shot and killed during a routine traffic stop near the Canadian border, the investigative team lead by Joe Gunther is taken to Maine where a drug kingpin has also been murdered. These two murders are interconnected.
As the two plotlines of the two murders begin to merge, the reader is unable to predict the outcome. One reviewer of the Catch: a Joe Gunther Novel in Amazon said that “this book ends with one of the most interesting confrontation scenes I've come across for a long time.”
If you love police mysteries or if you love the New England area, try one of the Joe Gunther series.
