          • bioText:

            Archer 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." The 25th book, PROOF POSITIVE, is due October 1 (Minotaur/St. Martin's Press). 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. In 2011, Mayor's 22nd Joe Gunther novel, TAG MAN, earned a place on The New York Times bestseller list for hardback fiction. Before turning his hand to fiction, Mayor wrote history books, the most notable of which, Southern Timberman: The Legacy of William Buchanan, concerned the lumber and oil business in Louisiana from the 1870s to the 1970s. This book was published in 1988 and very well received; it was republished as a trade paperback in 2009. Archer Mayor is a death investigator for Vermont's Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, a detective for the Windham County Sheriff's Office, the publisher of his own backlist, a travel writer for AAA, and he travels the Northeast giving speeches and conducting workshops. He has 25 years of experience as a volunteer firefighter/EMT. Mayor was brought up in the US, Canada and France and had been employed as a scholarly editor, a researcher for TIME-LIFE Books, a political advance-man, a theater photographer, a newspaper writer/editor, a lab technician for Paris-Match Magazine in Paris, France, and a medical illustrator. In addition to writing novels and occasional articles, Mayor gives talks and workshops all around the country, including the Bread Loaf Young Writers conference in Middlebury, Vermont, and the Colby College seminar on forensic sciences in Waterville, Maine.

            November 28, 1994
            This latest case featuring Brattleboro, Vt., detective Joe Gunther is the series' most ambitious entry-and its most flawed. Two hours after Joe leaves the bed of his lover, Gail Zigman, she is raped. The rapist's methodology-including tiny knife wounds, property destruction and underwear draped across a lamp shade-strongly hints at the identity of Gail's assailant: local deadbeat and drunk Bob Vogel, who has raped before and gotten away with it. This time the case against Vogel is a sound one, especially after he stabs Joe during a chase in an underground tunnel. But there are subtle discrepancies between Gail's rape and Vogel's earlier ones. Is there a copycat rapist on the prowl? Mayor's attempt to enter the traumatized minds of Gail and Joe is courageous and partially successful, but too many cardboard characters impede the story. The feminists supporting Gail are too strident, the local newspaperman is too crusading, the local politicians are too self-serving and the prime suspect is too, too vile. This novel is, overall, a morass-and an unexpected one after the author's success with such earlier Joe Gunther novels as Borderlines. Author tour.
