A series of assaults and a bloody murder in Brattleboro, Vermont, appear unrelated until police Lieutenant Joe Gunther realizes the victims were all jurors in the Kimberly Harris murder trial three years back

for their relentless optimism. It not only introduced my readers to Joe Gunther, but it brought Joe and me together with Vermont as well. Written over several years and completely retooled three times, it was less an exercise in plot development and more a road of discovery. Indeed, the very first draft was written in the third person, placed in Virginia, and featured a plot to subvert the . Talk about wandering far afield!

I have just discovered this writer and his Joe Gunther character. This mystery series, while not as flashy as some of the bigger-name authors, delivers a great character - well developed and very human. Similar in some ways to the Brady Coyne series by William Tapply. The crimes and the situations are believable and are not cinematic the way many current mystery/thrillers seem to be. It's also nice to have a setting that isn't L.A. or other large city. The Vermont weather and geography adds a touch of reality. This title was not available at my public library so I bought the Kindle version. If there are gaps in the series from my library I will definitely fill them through Amazon. These are definitely worth reading if you like a believable plot and a main character with depth.

Being a big fan of series mystery writers I recently ran across Archer Mayor and decided to read the first book in the series. Joe Gunther is a lieutenant on the police force in the small town of Brattleboro Vermont and is called out to investigate a bizarre shooting which touches off a series of a events leading to the conclusion that for some unknown reason somebody is trying to provoke the police to reopen a three year old murder case even though the killer is in prison. What reason would someone want the case reopened and who is the "ski mask man" who is provoking the police department?

This premise is the crux of the plot in this mystery. There is some very good procedural police work here and the story is interesting but I just could not really get into the story as I found it very good in parts and boring in others with no real continuity and the the story is just to implausible and disconnected. I liked the protagonist but found little in the way of character development and not much of a sense of atmosphere I was hoping for other than yes it does snow alot in Vermont. I found this book hard to rate but ended up giving three starts as it is a reasonable debut effort and plan to try the next couple of books in the series to see how the author develops the series as there does seem to be alot of potential here.

This murder mystery starts out with a bang. An old lady kills an intruder with a shotgun, in Brattleboro, Vermont. This type of crime is rare in Brattleboro and then Detective Joe Gunther finds out that it was a setup. More strange crimes happen and they all have one thing in common: All of the victims served on the same jury. Detective Gunther does solve who is orchestrating the crimes, but not before more people die. He must reopen the murder case of the man that the jury convicted. When he does, he finds reason to doubt the guilt of the convicted man.
I liked the author's description of Vermont winter storms:
"Night had fallen halfway into the trip, narrowing our already limited view to a hypnotizing funnel of onrushing snow."
This was an Amazon free book, number 1 in a series. I give it 4 out 5 stars. The plot is believable and the characters are written well.

This book was good, not fantastic, but enjoyable. One reviewer said "solving it was like following the dots," which was a great way of describing it. Introduction of characters at the end of the book with no real development. The story was told in the first person, and there were several chapters I just found boring, which were put in for Joe Gunther's development. I had trouble with the Vermont back ground. I found it hard to believe that the police didn't find the identification of a homicide victim until forced to after the case went to trail. Also the small town politic seemed unreal, and the relation with the newspaper seemed unreal. The Reporter for the paper was a better investigator then the police and Mr. Gunther. The "Ski Masked," character, seemed to far ahead of the story, and too well prepared to make the story real. I still remember the late 80's and how the world was in the early stages of the technology revolution, so the lack of technology, didn't really put me off. Overall I liked the book, so I would recommend it, but don't take it so serious. I didn't get the title Open Season?

"Open Season" starts out with a great idea…someone wearing a ski mask is setting up crimes using jurors from a case in which a black janitor is accused and found guilty of the murder of a beautiful young woman living in the building he maintains. On closer examination, it appears that the black janitor was also set up and that the police force of a small Vermont community department appears complicit in a rushed investigation. The janitor now resides in a Vermont state prison where he is the victim of racist acts by inmates.

The opportunities to develop this story seemed endless, but within a few chapters it became apparent that the momentum of the story was often sidetracked with irrelevant, overly long, or extraneous material about the main character’s personal life or that of other officers in the department. It broke the suspense of the initial chapters and I found myself progressively losing interest. Perhaps the author has learned to better pace himself in later novels, but this one, with its early promise, just didn’t satisfy my expectations of a good mystery novel.

Open Season is the debut outing in Archer Mayor's series of detective novels set in the small town of Brattleboro, Vermont. His main character, Joe Gunther, is a good guy, loaded with authenticity, similar to the Vermont setting. A native of this idiosyncratic corner of New England, Gunther fell into policing to find he has a talent and real passion for it. Mayor immerses the reader in the moment-to-moment progress of his procedurals with accurate, detailed descriptions, thus rendering the revelation in Open Season that the solution to the mystery has been hiding in plain sight all the more surprising.

I've just started the fifth installment in the Joe Gunther series, Fruits of the Poisonous Tree, and realize I've developed quite an attachment to Gunther and the recurring cast of characters.
