Join Vermont Edition on September 30 for a live broadcast conversation with Vermont author Archer Mayor discussing his newest release, 'Bomber's Moon'.

Since 1988, Vermont author Archer Mayor has been bringing detective Joe Gunther to life, keeping readers wanting more. Be part of the studio audience for Vermont Edition on Monday, September 30 at noon, when Mayor will discuss his newest release, Bomber’s Moon.  

Out September 24, 2019, Bomber’s Moon marks the thirtieth book in The New York Times bestselling, Vermont-based mystery series featuring detective Joe Gunther. We’ll discuss what's kept him interested in keeping his fictional protagonist alive for 30 years (and 30 books) and how his own life as a medical examiner, assistant sheriff and volunteer firefighter has inspired his work.

This broadcast will take place in VPR’s Stetson Studio One in Colchester. This all-ages event is free and open to the public, but seat reservations are required.


About Bomber’s Moon:

What is a Bomber's Moon? A moon so bright you can spot your enemy by its light. The catch? They see you, too! In Mayor’s latest crime novel, two strong young women, (one a hardboiled introvert, the other a trusting extrovert) unlikely partners, are both embroiled in the same crime from opposite angles.

Sally—engaging, smart, and last seen in Tag Man—returns as a skilled Private Investigator. Strong minded and well trained, she is placed undercover to peel away the layers hiding questionable activities at a local prep school. Rachel, an Investigative Reporter (and the Medical Examiner's daughter) now works for the Brattleboro Reformer. She pursues a seductive, creative thief, becoming enmeshed in his intricate, Byzantine activities—suffering the consequences of becoming too close.

Mayor brings in his usual steady team to keep an eye on these two "wild cards," as they all work to find out who did what to whom.
